Dmitry Medvedev: The threat of a nuclear response is growing at the moment

The deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, is angry about the aid that is being given to Ukraine and has condemned it. There is a lot of solidarity in Europe with Ukraine, and they are trying to assist Ukraine in all the ways they can.
There is a threat that Medvedev made regarding the use of nuclear weapons that may be of concern to the entire world. "Has the threat of a nuclear conflict passed? No, it has not passed. It has increased. Every day that foreign arms are delivered to Ukraine, this same nuclear apocalypse is ultimately approaching.
I have a feeling that until a certain point, they did not believe and did not see the determination of Russia, nor its president or the supreme commander, to do what we did. And they miscalculated. The consequences are much more complicated than they could have been if they had signed the document with us in December," said Medvedev.
Many suspects that Medvedev was referring to the agreement from December 2021, when Russia demanded that NATO not expand into areas that do not suit them.
Alexander Lukashenko and his reaction
Alexander Lukashenko, the Belarusian president, said in a television interview that if Great Britain transfers depleted uranium grenades to Ukraine, then Russia can deliver ammunition with real uranium to Belarus instead.
"If they (Western countries - op.a.) are crazy, then they will give impetus to this process. As soon as these munitions explode in the positions of Russian troops, you will see that the response will be terrible, it will be a lesson for the whole planet," he said.
There is no doubt that the situation is worrying and very tense at the moment. A problem like this should be solved as soon as possible since it can lead to a real catastrophe in the world if not dealt with. Russia and Ukraine still cannot find a common language. We hope that Putin will think carefully about everything, although it seems difficult at the moment.
