Germany allowed Ukraine to use its weapons on Russian territory – and Medvedev, who is close to Putin, threatens NATO with a nuclear strike.

Moscow – Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedevhe have NATOCountries on Friday threatened a nuclear strike after some of them lifted restrictions on Ukraine’s use of weapons in the war against Russia. This is not the first time that the former president and a close associate of Putin has joined the Russian voices warning of an imminent escalation. In a long post on his Telegram channel, he directed his threats towards NATO. Chancellor Olaf Scholz confirmed that he wants to avoid a war between Russia and NATO.

In his post on Telegram, which was also reported by the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti Medvedev reportedly addressed “Western countries” that have allowed the use of long-range weapons against Russian territory — “regardless of whether these are old or new parts of our country.” “Military assistance” to Ukraine is not that, but rather “participation in the war” against Russia. According to Medvedev, it can also be considered a so-called “cause of war”, that is, a reason for declaring war.

„The final stage” – Medvedev threatens a nuclear strike

“A few years ago, they claimed that Russia would not enter into an open military conflict with the Bandiri regime so as not to antagonize the West. I was wrong. “There is war,” Medvedev writes. As with the unexpected attack on Ukraine, the “use of tactical nuclear weapons” could also become a miscalculation.

The former Russian president added: “As the Russian president rightly pointed out, the population density in European countries is very high.” The military conflict with “the West” is developing according to the “worst-case scenario,” and there is “an increase in the power of NATO weapons used.” Therefore, no one today can rule out that the conflict is entering its final stage.”

A close associate of Putin warns NATO of “harmful mistakes”

“Russia assumes that all long-range weapons used by former Ukraine are directly used by NATO armies,” Medvedev wrote in his contribution. His country will attack „both on the territory of former Ukraine and on the territory of other states” if attacks on Russian territory are launched from there.

Medvedev said it would be a „serious and harmful mistake” for NATO to act as if its support for Ukraine was a matter of „sovereign decisions of individual countries.” “Operation of long-range cruise missiles” or “sending contingents of troops to Ukraine” constitute a “dangerous escalation” of the conflict.

Despite the threat of a nuclear strike: Germany and the United States allow the use of weapons on Russian territory

Following the United States, and after a long debate on Friday, the federal government also allowed Ukraine to use weapons supplied to it against targets in Russia’s border area with the Kharkiv region. Federal Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said during a visit to Moldova: “This decision is the right decision” and includes “all the systems we have delivered.”

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (Social Democratic Party) said about the use of German weapons: „We must avoid a major war – a war between Russia and NATO.” At the same time, Germany must guarantee „Ukraine’s ability to defend its independence and sovereignty.” Germany supplied Kiev, among other things, with self-propelled howitzers 2000 and the Mars 2 system.

On Thursday, US President Joe Biden allowed Ukraine to attack Russian military sites in the border region with American weapons. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky described the lifting of restrictions as “a step forward towards the goal of enabling the defense of our population in the villages located on the border.”

NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg wants new help for Ukraine in the fight against Russia

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg proposed new aid to Ukraine worth at least 40 billion euros annually to NATO member states. On Friday, at the conclusion of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Prague, he said that Ukraine needs “long-term predictability.” According to Stoltenberg, the amount of 40 billion euros corresponds to the amount that the allies have raised together annually since the start of the Russian war of aggression in February 2022. “We have to maintain this level of support at least every year, and for as long as it is necessary,” the Norwegian said.

Only on Thursday did the federal government promise Ukraine another German arms package. “Its value is approximately 500 million euros,” a spokesman for the Federal Ministry of Defense told the news agency. France Press agency. This includes deliveries “in the five categories of artillery, air defence, drones, endurance and protection”. (CES/AFP)

Putin’s peace offer in Ukraine war is merely a 'revival of National Socialism’

According to Zelensky, Putin has no intention of ending the war. A frozen conflict will not be possible.

Wagenknecht said that Ukraine’s permanent non-nuclear status and renunciation of NATO membership are „understandable demands from Russia.” It is „in Europe’s existential interest to find a compromise now to avoid the risk of a major European war.” The G7 heads of state and government must respond quickly to this offer.

Elections in Great Britain: Poll finds the UK Reform Party ahead of the Conservative Party for the first time

Elections in Great Britain: Poll finds the UK Reform Party ahead of the Conservative Party for the first time

Three weeks before Great Britain’s general election, the right-wing populist Reform Party of Britain is said to have overtaken Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s conservative Conservative Party in a poll for the first time. In the institute’s published survey YouGov On behalf of the newspaper times The UK’s reform rate rose by two percentage points to 19 per cent, putting it in second place behind Labour.

According to the poll, Labor itself lost one percentage point, but is still clearly in the lead with 37 percent. President Rishi Sunak’s Conservatives remained unchanged at 18 percent, putting them in third place for the first time. Although the gap between the Conservatives and Reform in the UK is small, YouGov is already talking about a political 'earthquake’.

However, the impressive result of the poll by international opinion research institute YouGov rests on a relatively uncertain foundation. There is currently no other poll to confirm the result. YouGov surveys are based on invitations via email or in the YouGov app. There, users can answer questions on a wide range of topics. Users receive points that can be collected and redeemed for rewards.

About uncertainties in surveys

Representative surveys are always subject to errors. It can be assumed that the actual value is likely to be in the range of one to three percentage points above or below the finally declared measured values. We now show the corridor for this statistical error in our graphics of the election polls.

Results are always based on sample surveys. These services usually only cover certain parts of the population (such as people with a landline phone connection or Internet users). Some potential participants are passive and do not even want to be interviewed. Questions are sometimes misunderstood and not always answered truthfully. For example, also in response to previous surveys. However, in order to account for general opinion across all population groups, pollsters must compensate for missing measurements and suspected inaccuracies and reweight the available numbers. These (usually opaque) formulas vary between institutions and therefore lead to different data.

Survey results are always snapshots. Nothing more can be drawn from this than an approximate tendency of opinion. Even if the statements and calculations at the time of the poll’s publication were close to reality, it is still unclear whether voters surveyed at that time would actually cast their ballots later or change their minds in a short time.

The Conservatives have been in power for 14 years and are under intense pressure before the elections. In opinion polls, the Conservatives have been significantly trailing the opposition Labor Party for several months.

The Reform Party UK is the new party led by Nigel Farage, who was previously leader of the Brexit Party. With its tough anti-immigrant stance, the UK Reform Party could steal more votes from the Conservatives. Farage said in a debate on Britain’s ITV that he actually sees his party as „the opposition to Labour”.
