“No country can afford to negotiate with terrorists, terrorists must be destroyed,” the Russian official argued
Threats against Kiev were launched on Thursday by Dmitry Medvedev after the drone attack in Moscow attributed to Ukraine. He posted on his Telegram account a video in which he appears in military uniform talking to officers at the Prudboy combined arms training range in the Volgograd region.
The vice president of Russia’s Security Council described the actions of the “Ukrainian regime” as he called it, as terrorism, pointing out that the only way to deal with terrorists “it is their destruction.”
“This is an act of terrorism and there is no other way to describe it. If it is an act of terrorism, there is only one way to respond. No country can afford to negotiate with terrorists, terrorists must be destroyed,” Medvedev said, commenting on the actions of the Ukrainian regime.
“It is clear to everyone that it was an absolutely terrorist attack, it was not a battle, not a military action. It doesn’t even fit any rules of war,” Medvedev said. He wondered what purpose such a drone attack could serve. “To cause damage to the civilian population and only that, because these means of destruction, these drones that were used, cannot damage either military installations or public administration buildings,” he said. “The goal was simple – to cause damage, to harm the civilian population in some way,” Medvedev claimed.
“And the fact that our enemy is already behaving like a terrorist very specifically characterizes both the Ukrainian regime and those behind it – first of all Americans and Europeans, who, in fact, have gone to war with us,” Medvedev said. In his opinion, “terrorist acts must entail the harshest possible retaliation.”
