Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned the Brussels masochists that they will have to change their rhetoric if the Russian debt default turns into the bankruptcy of both the moral and material of the European Union.
Medvedev, who is currently the deputy chairman of the National Security Council, took to Telegram to respond to remarks made by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. She said earlier in the day that Russia's state bankruptcy is only a matter of time, referring to the hard-hitting Western economic sanctions on Moscow over its offensive in Ukraine.
Medvedev suggested that it was something the EU politicians secretly dreamed about at night, as auntie Ursula has been talking about an imminent Russian default. This is the deep strategy of the European Union, the secret intention of the masochists from Brussels and their partners in games from across the ocean, the US Medvedev wrote in a post.
The former president warned that a Russian default could lead to a moral and possibly a material default of the bloc itself.
People's confidence is falling as the financial system of the EU is not quite stable. He said that it didn't shake so much even in the memorable year of 2008, and back then it was very difficult, referring to the so called Great Financial Crash.
He sarcastically advised the EU to expect powerful gratitude from their citizens for hyperinflation that could no longer be attributed to the wicked Russians, for the lack of basic supplies in stores and for a new migration crisis, which in Medvedev s opinion will cause a wave of violent crime worse than the Albanian one. He said that if the chaps in Brussels change their rhetoric, he said, the chaps in Brussels will have to change their rhetoric, because otherwise, smelly bonfires of tires will appear on the streets of well-maintained European cities. Since the launch of the Russian offensive in Ukraine on February 24, the EU has adopted five packages of financial sanctions against Moscow and is considering a sixth. The restrictions cover a wide range of sectors of the Russian economy, from banking to coal exports. Hundreds of foreign companies have stopped their operations in Russia. Moscow considers these measures unlawful and unjustified and has been responding to them with counter-sanctions.
In late February, Russia attacked the neighboring state after Ukraine failed to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.
The Kremlin has demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists that the Russian offensive was unprovoked and has denied that it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
