Dmitry Medvedev, the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, believes that Ukraine's accession to NATO will accelerate the outbreak of World War III.
Source: Medvedev, on Telegram
Quote: "Zelensky wants to join NATO as soon as possible. Great idea. Just begging the North Atlantic alliance to speed up the start of World War III."
Details: Medvedev also commented on the words of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg that if Ukraine stops fighting, it will disappear as a state.
"What a cynical boy – after all, if he does not stop, then a significant number of Ukrainians will disappear," the official of the aggressor country claimed. At the same time, he did not mention that part of the Russians would disappear in such a case, too.
Previously: On Friday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that Ukraine had filed an application to join NATO under the fast-track procedure.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in fact, avoided replying to the question whether he supported Ukraine’s application on joining the Alliance under the fast-track procedure.
