Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Medvedev: because of the special operation, they began to really reckon with Russia According to him, they began to reckon with Russia “for real”, and in some ways even more seriously than with the USSR. Medvedev is sure that this is confirmed by the number of sanctions imposed against the country “Medvedev named one already completed goal during the operation in Ukraine” />
Deputy head of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev believes that Russia has already completed one of the goals of the special operation in Ukraine— made me reckon with myself “for real”. He wrote about it in Telegram.
Medvedev recalled that the officially declared goals of the operation were “denazification” of and “demilitarization” Ukraine. “But there is another problem that has already been solved. Russia began to be truly reckoned with. As with the Soviet Union, & mdash; wrote Medvedev.— And something even more serious, judging by the set of sanctions. More recently it was different. I remember the presence of our country in the G8, when we were simply not invited to the G7 meeting, where economic and sometimes defense issues of Western countries were discussed.
He emphasized that “if you are not considered” things are bad.” At the same time, Medvedev cited street yard fights as an example, explaining that if you “got scared and screwed”, then you will not be called anywhere else. “And if you hit first, then the chances of defending your own become significantly higher,” — concluded the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council.
The parallel between yard fights and decisions in foreign policy was previously drawn by President Vladimir Putin. In 2015, speaking about the Russian military operation in Syria against the “Islamic State” (the organization is recognized as a terrorist organization and banned in Russia), he mentioned his childhood in Leningrad. “Even 50 years ago, a Leningrad street taught me one rule: if a fight is inevitable, you must strike first,” — Putin said.
On the need for “denazification” and “demilitarization” Ukraine, Putin said during the announcement of the start of the operation on February 24. At the end of June, he noted that the ultimate goal of warfare was the “liberation” of Donbass and security guarantees for Russia itself. He clarified that the troops are achieving their goals, but it is too early to talk about the timing of the completion of the operation. “This [the timing of the special operation] is related to the intensity of hostilities, and it is directly related to possible losses, and we must first of all think about how to save the lives of our guys,” — he explained.
On Thursday, July 7, Putin clarified that “an inevitable but side effect” operation is to strengthen Russian sovereignty.
