This Russian politician, who was also prime minister, He was considered a moderate figure, but since the beginning of the Russian offensive in Ukraine he has been one of the harshest voices in criticizing Western countries.

In July, Medvedev evoked a possible use of nuclear weaponsruling out that his country be sanctioned by international justice, at a time when The Criminal Court in The Hague investigates accusations of war crimes in Ukraine.

“The very idea of ​​punishing a country that has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world is absurd in itself. And this creates a potential threat to the existence of humanity.”the current vice president of the powerful Russian Security Council wrote on his Telegram account.

He also criticized the United States, accusing it of wanting to bring Russia to international justice, despite the fact that Washington has never been punished for the wars it has waged in various countries around the world and which, according to the senior Russian official, have left 20 million dead.

Currently, The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague investigates alleged war crimes committed in Ukraine.

Russia systematically denies any abuse attributed to its troops, such as the bombing of civilians, summary executions or rape, and counters by accusing Ukraine of war crimes.
