Ex-president threatens: – British officials “military targets”

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has declared British government officials legitimate targets in the offensive war against Ukraine. Britain is supporting Ukraine militarily with equipment and specialists, waging an “undeclared war” against Russia, the current deputy chief of the National Security Council wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Since that is the case, all of his public figures (both military and civilians supporting the war) can be considered legitimate military targets,” Medvedev threatened. He was responding to statements by British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, who said on Tuesday that Ukraine has the right to use force beyond its own borders.

‘England is in fact at war without being declared’
“Today, the UK is acting as an ally of Ukraine, providing its military aid in the form of equipment and specialists. That is, it is de facto waging an undeclared war against Russia. In this case, any of its officials (whether military or civilian officials supporting the war) could be considered a legitimate military target,” Medvedev tweeted (see tweet above).

British Foreign Secretary Cleverly said Ukraine has the right to attack targets on Russian soil in self-defense. The conservative politician said this at a press conference with his Estonian counterpart Margus Tsahkna in the Estonian capital Tallinn.

Mutated into a hardliner since the start of the war
When he was elected president in 2008, Medvedev was considered a relatively liberal representative of Russian politics. Since the beginning of the Russian war against Ukraine, he has made a name for himself as a hardliner. He also repeatedly threatened to use nuclear weapons.
