On Tuesday, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev addressed the participants of the federal educational marathon “Knowledge”, which takes place in the central “Manege” in Moscow. Here are the main statements of Dmitry Medvedev.

Elon Musk – for president

Any person whose authority is greater than that of Donald Trump (ex-President of the United States – Ed.) or even more so Joe Biden can win the presidential election in the United States, Dmitry Medvedev believes. Among the possible contenders for the presidency, Medvedev named the “legendary Elon” (Mask, – Ed.).

However, as Medvedev noted, Russia doesn’t really care who occupies a chair in the White House. Medvedev called what is happening in the United States a tragic farce that can turn into a farce, as well as “the agony of political classes.” According to him, either helpless, albeit charismatic dilettantes, or frail old people are at the head of the United States. Medvedev called such a scenario not even funny, but terrible. He noted that such political agony could become a trigger that will affect the whole world.

Medvedev also predicted the secession of a number of states from the United States and said that he personally would “cheer for Texas” if he began to seek independence.

Speaking about relations between the EU and the US, Medvedev noted that there is not a single independent politician in Europe. Everyone depends on the USA. Even those who are loyal to Russia and with whom our country has good relations.

The hand must not tremble on the nuclear button

Medvedev said that the head of state must be ready to use nuclear weapons if necessary, and his hand must not waver, “no matter how monstrous and cruel it may sound.”

He noted that, as a former president, he knows what it is.

According to Medvedev, the West should not underestimate the possibility of Russia using nuclear weapons. Medvedev also said that the words that the Russians only scare, but in fact they will not press the nuclear button, are worthless. Medvedev expressed confidence that Russia would use nuclear weapons in case of a threat to its existence.

Medvedev called nuclear weapons a staple for Russia, which is of fundamental importance for the existence of the country.

Medvedev also said that a new world war is likely, but not inevitable. He recalled that war has been avoided for the past 30 years, but “it still came.” According to him, war was imposed on Russia.

Oil and gas will rise in price

The rise in oil and gas prices in the world will continue, Medvedev said.

According to him, one thousand euros per thousand cubic meters of gas will return soon.

Medvedev recalled that in December 2022 he predicted an increase in oil prices to $150 per barrel and gas prices to $5,000 per 1,000 cubic meters. m. And in his opinion, he did not exaggerate much – energy prices are rising.

Medvedev noted that this year Europe was able to survive the winter, but the cost was high. Now the Europeans are buying more expensive gas from the US and enriching the Americans.

Western Ukraine can go to Poland and Hungary

Medvedev said that the likelihood of the seizure of Ukrainian territories by Poland and Hungary is increasing.

– The leaders of Poland are talking with the Ukrainian leadership about the confederation, and from here it is not far to the union, as it once was. There is a reason. If you don’t take into NATO and the European Union all the Ukrainian girl who has fallen at the feet of the owners, we will take the remaining regions there in parts. I will express a seditious thought. A quiet partition is better than Ukraine in NATO or a world war,” Medvedev said.

According to him, Poland, Hungary and Romania have been dreaming of taking over the western regions of Ukraine for more than a decade.

Will the euro be cancelled?

Medvedev did not rule out that the EU countries could abandon the euro and return to their national currencies. According to him, the euro began to lose its role as a universal means of payment. So, a return to the former is not excluded: to marks, lira and francs.

– Welcome back to the financial patchwork system with national currencies! – said Medvedev.

According to him, the rejection of the euro will confuse the calculations and create problems in the global financial market.

Against this background, according to Medvedev, there is no alternative to the ruble, yuan, Indian rupee, other currencies of the BRICS countries in the future. In this regard, Medvedev urged to think about creating a BRICS digital currency.

Expert comment

“We need to be mentally prepared for a nuclear war”

Political scientist, director of the Center for Geopolitical Expertise Valery Korovin

– During his presidency, Dmitry Anatolyevich still had illusions that it was possible not only to live peacefully with the West. As he mentioned: we hoped for the reasonableness of the West, the West is rational enough. And that he won’t start. But he started. These illusions have been shattered. Now Medvedev gives an absolutely accurate assessment of what is happening. On the one hand, warning the West about the consequences. If we understand what is happening, then we are preparing for it, then we will respond to it. Do not console yourself with the illusion that we are not ready for this. On the other hand, he appeals to the internal audience, preparing that what is happening now is the flowers that you need to move to a more serious level of perception of what is happening. We must warn the West about the consequences so that they do not say later that we did not warn them that we are the aggressor. No, they are the aggressor. The third world war is a nuclear war. Nuclear exchange. You need to be mentally prepared for this. Because the West is ready. If we are not ready, then if it is necessary to consolidate society, legitimize the decisions of the authorities on a retaliatory strike, we can hear a howl, a groan. As we heard it in February 2022, when the president started the SVO, Valery Korovin said on the air of KP radio.
