Threats from the West and NATO’s withdrawal from Ukraine do not seem to scare the Russian giant, which on Monday morning wanted to show its weapons power as they began to reach Ukraine.
Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of the Russian Security Council, warned today that Russia could have modern weapons in the event of the destruction of the United States, which threatens the country’s existence.
Russia possesses weapons capable of destroying any adversary, including the United States.

“Forgetful of the lessons of history, some in the West are already talking about revenge that will lead to a military victory over Russia. We can only say one thing about this matter (…).) Russia has unique modern weapons that can destroy any adversary, including the United States , in the case of its existence is threatened,” Patrushev said in an interview with the official Rossiskaya Gazeta daily.
At the same time, he stated that “Russia is patient and does not frighten anyone with its military position.” Patrushev, one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest hawks, also warned against the idea that “in the event of a direct conflict with Russia, the US could launch a preemptive strike and Russia would no longer be able to respond. .
Nata, direct the enemy
“That is myopic idiocy, certainly the most dangerous,” he added. In turn, Patrushev accused NATO of directly participating in the conflict in Ukraine by providing that country with weapons and intelligence to attack Russia.
“Of course, NATO nations are part of the conflict. They have turned Ukraine into a huge military camp. The Ukrainian armed forces are sending weapons and ammunition to provide intelligence, including that obtained from satellites and drones,” he said.
Patrushev pointed out that NATO prepares Ukrainian military officers and advisers, while on the front lines there are mercenaries from these countries who fight alongside the Ukrainian armed forces.
“As long as they are trying to prolong the hostilities, they do not hide their main goal, which is to defeat Russia on the battlefield and then destroy it,” he added. These words, from one of the people close to Vladimir Putin, two days after the president of Russia announced an agreement with Belarus to deploy nuclear weapons on its territory.
