`Attempts to return Russia to its 1991 borders will only lead to one thing: To a global war with Western countries using our entire strategic arsenal,` said Dmitry Medvedev,

Mr. Medvedev argued that the West’s intention to return to the 1991 borders implies the `direct and irreversible collapse` of today’s Russia.

When asked by the West whether they believed the Russian people would accept the division of the country, Mr. Medvedev said that Russia’s collapse would have more dire consequences than the results of a civil war.

Mr. Medvedev added that using Russia’s entire strategic arsenal in a war with the West would lead to attacks on Kiev (Ukraine), Berlin (Germany), London (UK) and Washington (USA).

`So it’s better to return everything before it’s too late. Or we will return it ourselves with maximum losses to our opponents. Similar to Avdiivka,` Mr. Medvedev declared.

On February 17, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced complete control of the city of Avdiivka in the Donetsk region, Eastern Ukraine after months of fierce fighting.

Mr. Medvedev repeatedly mentioned Russia’s nuclear doctrine, which stated cases in which Moscow could use nuclear weapons.

In May 2022, he said that by sending weapons and training Ukrainian soldiers, NATO `increases the likelihood of a direct and open conflict between NATO and Russia.`

In September 2023, Mr. Medvedev announced that Russia’s special military¬†operation in Ukraine would continue `until the Kiev government is completely defeated.`

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier this month that Russia currently controls about 26% of Ukraine’s territory, but cannot make further advances due to Ukrainian resistance.

Russia has controlled the Crimean peninsula since 2014 after a controversial referendum.

President Putin called this a historic choice of people living in the four regions Russia announced to merge with to reunite with the `Fatherland`.

Russian officials have repeatedly stated that they are ready to end the conflict if Ukraine meets the conditions set forth by Moscow, including accepting `new territorial realities`.
