"Rockets will fly at the Bundestag": Medvedev warns of an attack after Putin's arrest warrant


"Did he fail to do his homework?" Russia's ex-president Medvedev is furious after statements by the FDP justice minister - and threatens the Bundestag.

"Did he fail to do his homework?" Russia's ex-president Medvedev is furious after statements by the FDP justice minister - and threatens the Bundestag.

Moscow – In recent months, Russia's former President Dmitry Medvedev has repeatedly made sharp threats against the West.

Now, with a declaration of war on the West, he is once again stoking concerns about an escalation in the war - and also warning of a nuclear strike.

“Is the danger of a nuclear conflict over?

No, it's not over.

She has gained weight,” says an excerpt from an interview that Medvedev himself

published on

Telegram .

Medvedev addressed clear words primarily to Berlin and Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP).

Medvedev declares war: Putin ally threatens nuclear apocalypse

Buschmann recently angered the Kremlin with his statements on the arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

For Russia, arresting Putin would be tantamount to a declaration of war.

"Let's imagine - of course this is a situation that will never happen, yes - but let's imagine that it actually happened.

For example, an incumbent president of a nuclear power comes to Germany and is arrested.

What is that?

A declaration of war on the Russian Federation,” Medvedev said in an interview with the state news agency



Regarding Buschmann's words that Germany must implement the verdict and arrest Putin if he enters German territory, Medvedev said: "Is he even aware that this would be a casus belli, a declaration of war?

Or has he neglected to do his homework?” The fact that, according to Medvedev, Russia will still be building 1,500 tanks for the Ukraine war in 2023 is apparently intended to underscore the threat to the West.

Should an arrest take place in Germany, "all our means, rockets and others, will fly to the Bundestag, the Chancellery and so on," Medvedev is said to have said, according to the



Declaration of war on Buschmann: Medvedev reacts angrily to statements by the Minister of Justice

The FDP politician Buschmann had previously commented on the arrest warrant against Putin in the 

Bild am Sonntag


He stressed that Germany must implement its verdict and arrest the Russian head of state.

"I expect that the ICC will quickly approach Interpol and the contracting states and request enforcement." Germany is obliged to arrest Putin as soon as he enters German territory.

The Kremlin declared that Russia does not recognize the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ISTGH).

"Russia is doing and will do what is in its interests," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, referring to Bushman's statements.

The Russian ambassador in Berlin, Sergei Neschajew, accused Germany of an escalation course.

The diplomat described the statements made by “some German representatives” on the “illegal and completely absurd” ISTGH decision as “irresponsible” and “worrying.” They also indicate how far from reality they are in their efforts to end the conflict with Russia to continue escalating, said the diplomat.

Arrest of Vladimir Putin by the ISTGH would be tantamount to a declaration of war for Russia

The basis of Medvedev's "declaration of war" is the arrest warrant issued by the ISTGH against Putin last week, Friday.

There are "reasonable reasons" to believe that Putin is "personally responsible" for kidnapping children into Russian territory, which constitutes a war crime, according to the Hague-based ICC.

The ICC began investigations immediately after the start of the Ukraine war.

The US newspaper 

New York Times

 reported on Monday (March 20) that the Hague's chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, was preparing two allegations.

According to Khan, these should also apply for life after the end of the war, emphasized the chief prosecutor.

An arrest warrant was also issued against the Kremlin chief's child rights officer, Maria Alexeyevna Lvowa-Belowa.
