A staunch ally of Vladimir Putin issued a caution to the Western nations regarding the possibility of a "9/11-style attack" in the lead-up to the 22nd anniversary of the tragic event this week, according to sources.
As the United States prepares to observe the 22nd anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Putin’s crony Dmitry Medvedev took to social media to suggest that “another attack” is imminent and there would be a “nuclear or biological component” involved in the next alleged attack.
On Sept. 10, Medvedev wrote on X, "I don't want to forebode, but [the U.S.] will see that at some point terrorists will launch another 11/09/2001-style attack, but with a nuclear or biological component.”
Medvedev continued, "Or even worse: one of the leaders of nuclear countries will lose his nerve and make an emotional decision to use WMD. Especially since the nuclear club is constantly expanding and a significant part of it is not bound by any obligations.”
"And then that would be it. The end of the ball game,” Putin’s ally concluded his warning. “There will be only to collect money for a new monument in the neighborhood of Ground Zero. At best."
This isn’t the first warning from Medvedev about a possible war against the United States and the West. The chairman of Russia’s security council hinted at a war between the West and Russia earlier this year when he condemned the West for helping Ukraine in Russia’s war against its neighboring nation, RadarOnline.com reported.
These new chilling remarks from Medvedev came amid reports that Kim Jung Un started his journey from Pyongyang, North Korea to Russia to meet with Putin for a summit.
Jong Un reportedly left Pyongyang early Monday morning and is expected to meet with Putin in Vladivostok on Tuesday, BBC reported.

This meeting marks the first international trip for Jong Un in more than four years. The duo are reportedly set to have discussions about North Korea supplying Russia with weapons to help support their ongoing war against Ukraine.
One source familiar with the upcoming summit told BBC, "What'll matter now is if both sides can find suitable prices they're willing to pay for the other's assistance."
The source added, “This could open up the possibility of North Korea transferring more sophisticated weaponry to Russia to allow Moscow to maintain and backfill its own stocks of conventional weapons.”
