BREAKING WORLD WAR III NEWS: Putin security chief Nikolai Patrushev vows to destroy the West with hypersonic nuclear weapons if the West attempts to defeat Russia; says Moscow must be allowed to dominate Europe
- Nikolai Patrushev’s comments showed how conspiracies are rampant in Kremlin
- He is seen as being the brains behind Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine
Nikolai Patrushev also demanded in an interview that Moscow must be allowed to dominate Europe after the supposed impending collapse of the EU.
The 71-year-old hardline ideologue – seen by some as the brains behind Putin’s ill-conceived war in Ukraine – showed how conspiracy theories are rampant inside the Kremlin.
‘Some people in the West are already talking about revenge that would lead to a military victory over Russia,’ he said.
Ignoring the fact that Putin ordered a brutal invasion of sovereign Ukraine last year while frequently threatening full-scale world war, Patrushev claimed: ‘Russia is patient and is not intimidating anyone with its military superiority.
‘However, it possesses unique modern weaponry capable of destroying any adversary including the US in case of a threat to its existence.’
His chilling threats included Putin’s demand to dominate Europe.
The US currently ‘does as it pleases in Europe ignoring the fact that the leading role on the continent has historically been Russia’s’, he told the Kremlin’s mouthpiece newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
‘The Russian empire’s in the 19th century, the Soviet Union’s in the 20th.
‘That’s how it will be in the 21st century as well.’
Patrushev, longtime secretary of Russia’s security council, is seen to be plotting for his son Dmitry Patrushev, 45, now Putin’s agriculture minister, to take over from the dictator as president if he is felled by ill-health or ousted due to war failures.
Patrushev, the ex-FSB chief, warned: ‘Nato countries are a party to the [Ukraine] conflict. They have turned Ukraine into one big military camp…
‘In trying to prolong this military confrontation as long as possible, they are not hiding their main goal – the defeat of Russia on the battlefield and its further dismemberment.
‘The US authorities’ unrestrained aspiration to retain the dominant role in the world has at least since 1945 been the source of all instances of escalation in tensions on the global scale.
‘American politicians that are hostage to their own propaganda for some reason retain the conviction that in case of a direct conflict with Russia the US would be capable of delivering a preventive missile strike, after which Russia would no longer be able to respond.
‘That is shortsighted idiocy of a very dangerous kind.’
The Putin henchman claimed the US uses ‘military-biological laboratories to create new viruses to destroy the people of unwanted countries while once clean American cities are drowning in filth and rubbish’.
‘False’ war crimes allegations are made against Putin and his entourage while the West ‘turns a blind eye to real acts of genocide and financial machinations carried out with the White House’s approval’, he claimed.
