According to Russia’s TASS news agency, Mr. Medvedev – former president and prime minister of Russia – voiced criticism of the West in a post on his Telegram application on January 28: “First, the defense of Ukraine, which no one needs in Europe, won’t save the old world from punishment if anything happens.
Second, once World War 3 breaks out, unfortunately, it won’t have the opportunity to take place on tanks or even fighter planes. But everything will definitely go up in smoke as soon as the war starts.”

Mr. Crossto said the weapons were sent to Ukraine to prevent an escalation of the war.
Medvedev’s warning was also in response to a call from the United Kingdom to supply Kiev with all the weapons NATO had.
