Former Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk, embroiled in controversies across Europe, has raised alarming concerns about the possibility of a nuclear attack from Russia.

Medvedchuk, known for his pro-Kremlin stance and his exile from Ukraine following a prisoner exchange in 2022, warned recently that if Western powers persist in seeking global dominance, a nuclear retaliation from Russia is highly probable.

Speaking to the Tass news service, Medvedchuk expressed his belief that nuclear weapons could inevitably be deployed if the current trajectory of conflict continues unabated. He emphasized Russia's superior population and military capabilities compared to Ukraine, suggesting that the eventual introduction of foreign troops into the region is unavoidable.

Medvedchuk speculated that these international forces could potentially originate from Central Europe, Scandinavia or the Balkans, and hinted at the possibility of involvement from non-NATO nations like China and India.

Referring to the "collective West" as adversaries, Medvedchuk echoed rhetoric previously used by Russian President Vladimir Putin. He suggested that the conflict in Ukraine could escalate further as various geopolitical actors become entangled in the crisis.

Medvedchuk's warnings come amidst escalating tensions and international scrutiny over his alleged involvement in a propaganda campaign aimed at undermining Ukraine's interests.

Medvedchuk's controversial history, including his expulsion from Ukraine and close ties to Russian leadership, has further fueled suspicions about his motives and allegiances. Once a prominent figure in Ukrainian politics, he now finds himself at odds with the government of President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has taken measures to counter pro-Russian narratives.

Despite his past affiliations and current challenges, Medvedchuk remains defiant, claiming to be a victim of political persecution and asserting his right to reside in Moscow.

As tensions escalate and the possibility of nuclear conflict looms, Medvedchuk's warnings serve as a stark reminder of the volatile geopolitical landscape and the potential consequences of unchecked aggression.
