Russia Threatens Doomsday

If Crimea is attacked, there would be hard action for Ukraine in a doomsday. The warning is issued by Dmitry Medvedev-the deputy chairman of Russia’s defense council on Sunday.

Medvedev said to a group of WWII veterans in Volgograd that some overjoyed and bloody clowns, who pop up there with few statements now and then, are on a way to threaten us, I mean attacks on Crimea.

Medvedev also said that if anything happens like this, Ukraine will have to face a doomsday, very quick and tough, and it will not be avoided.

Crimea was attacked and annexed by Russia in 2014. The current war between Russia and Ukraine has entered the 21st week, and there has been heavy fighting in eastern Ukraine, near Crimea.

Ukraine’s Response

A top advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky-Mikhail Podolyak said Medvedev was only an who is forgotten from history, but now trying to be serious and scary as well.

Zelensky responded that Medvedev’s doomsday threat is not a sober remark.

Zelensky further said that no one will accept such intimidation. But it seems so cynical to say on the next anniversary of Russia’s destruction of the Malaysian Boeing in the sky over the Donbas region.

Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was targeted and shot down in eastern Ukraine by Russian forces on July 17, 2014. It was a time when the Russian invasion and occupation of Crimea were happening. There was a total of 298 passengers and crew on the plane, and none of them survived.   

After that incident, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called it Russian terrorism. On the other side, Russian state media claimed that the plane was shot down by a Ukrainian Air force Su-25 jet.  

Actual Cause of Doomsday threat

Ukrainian Minister Vadym Skibitskyi said on Saturday that Russian military facilities in occupied Crimea are on the hit list to strike by the Ukrainian army. Actually, this statement forced Medvedev to threaten doomsday.

Zelensky said on Sunday that Russia was on its way to becoming a terrorist even back in 2014-during the Crimea attack and Malaysian Jet getting shot down.

Once again Russia threatens doomsday.
