Start of WWIII if the US strikes Russian targetsTEHRAN (defapress) - The official, who currently serves as Deputy Chair of Russia’s Security Council, remarked that "any US attack on Russian targets in Ukraine would automatically trigger a world war", came after Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski claimed Washington had threatened to conduct such a strike should Russia use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. 

In a post on X on Sunday, Medvedev suggested that Sikorski “apparently, has decided to scare his masters.” He noted that Washington, unlike Warsaw, has so far refrained from making any such threats publicly “because they are more cautious” than the Poles.

Medvedev also added that "Americans hitting our targets means starting a world war, and a Foreign Minister, even of a country like Poland, should understand that." 

The former Russian president also cited remarks made by Polish President Andrzej Duda last month, when he said his country would be willing to host US nuclear weapons if offered such an opportunity under NATO’s sharing mechanism. Medvedev warned that in case of a nuclear confrontation, “Warsaw won’t be left out, and will surely get its share of radioactive ash,” asking if this is the outcome the Polish leadership wants.
