Former Russian President and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, seen as one of Vladimir Putin’s staunchest allies, said the war in Ukraine could last decades, with long periods of fighting interrupted by ceasefires, the Russian news agency reported Thursday. RIA, cited by Reuters.
“This conflict will last a very long time, most likely decades,” said Medvedev, quoted by RIA. “As long as there is such a power (in Kiev – no), there will be, say, three years of truce, two years of conflict and everything will be repeated,” he continued, reiterating Moscow’s assertion that Ukraine is a state Nazi.
Dmitri Medvedev, currently vice-president of Putin’s powerful Security Council, made these statements during a visit to Vietnam, News.ro notes.
Since the start of the war in Ukraine, Medvedev has often made radical comments, and last month he described the Ukrainian authorities as an infection. In January, Medvedev said that if Russia were defeated, it could trigger a nuclear war, Reuters recalls.
