Kremlin officials warn of ‘guaranteed escalation’ to ‘catastrophic World War 3’

After a NATO official said a Russian nuclear response would lead to the intervention of Ukraine’s allies, Russia has once again warned that meddling from the West would spark World War 3

Russia has eerily warned the world that global carnage would ensue if Western allies of Ukraine continue to meddle in their conflict.

They said World War 3 would be sparked if the West continue to intervene and if a nuclear war was to occur, it would “be catastrophic for all mankind”.

Should NATO approve Ukraine’s bid to join its organisation, a top Kremlin official threatened global destruction.

Alexander Venediktov, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council said: “Kyiv is well aware that such a step would mean a guaranteed escalation to a World War 3″.

Venediktov has insisted that the West are solely making threats of nuclear war, despite his own president, Vladimir Putin, consistently teasing the use of nuclear weapons.

He claimed: “Russian officials have never voiced a threat to use any weapons of mass destruction.

“Meanwhile in Europe, some politicians openly call for such actions, even a number of politicians in the EU do not conceal and do not rule out the possibility of using weapons of mass destruction against Russia.”

Venediktov took aim at Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, claiming his “actions and words” are “dictated” by other people.

He added: “It would be good for the West to realize that their protégé can take on so much that Washington and Brussels will have to think about how to deal with the consequences.

“We must remember: a nuclear conflict will affect absolutely the whole world, and not only Russia and the collective West, but in general any country on this planet.

“Its consequences will be catastrophic for all mankind.”
