Dmitry Medvedev, a long-term ally of Vladimir Putin and currently deputy chairman of the security council of Russia, has posted a long message to Telegram about the prospect of anybody from Russia facing an international tribunal for their actions in Ukraine, APA reports citing the Guardian.
"I called crazy any attempts to create tribunals or courts for the so-called investigation of Russia’s actions. These proposals are not only legally void. The idea of punishing the country that has the largest nuclear potential is absurd in itself. And potentially threatens the existence of mankind."
He then goes on to ask “who is this daredevil or idiot” calling for these actions, and names the UUS. He then gives a long list of examples of military aggression from the US since the second world war and says:
"Vietnam and Korea, Yugoslavia and Iraq, Cuba, Afghanistan, and Syria are well aware of how disastrous the consequences of such invasions are – the list is long, and constantly updated. America has killed more than 20 million people in 37 countries since the end of World War II, according to a study published in Global Research. Think about it – more than 20 million! The author of this article, James A Lucas, asks a fair question: how much “9/11” has the US staged in other states? The answer is about 10 thousand.
So who is going to give us a show trial? Those who kill people and commit war crimes with impunity, but do not meet real condemnation in the international structures financed by them? Those who so firmly believed in their exclusivity and impunity? Those who believe they have the right to judge others, but be beyond the jurisdiction of any God’s judgment? With Russia, this will not work."
