The Kremlin has issued a stark warning to Ukraine, stating that the country must accept Moscow's terms or risk ceasing to exist as a sovereign nation.

According to Wiadomosci, Viacheslav Volodin, the Chairman of the Russian State Duma, made this clear in his recent statements, emphasizing Russia's uncompromising stance on the ongoing conflict.

Volodin argued that Western support for Ukraine is causing economic problems in Western countries and predicted financial and demographic disasters for Ukraine if it does not comply with Russia's terms.

He cited statistics claiming that 54% of Ukraine's population has left the country since 2014, suggesting that the nation is on the brink of collapse.

The Russian State Duma Chairman did not mention any crisis in Russia but focused on painting a grim picture for Ukraine's future if it continues to resist Moscow's demands. His statements serve as a chilling reminder of Russia's willingness to escalate the conflict to achieve its objectives.

This warning comes amid ongoing hostilities in Ukraine, which began in 2014 and escalated with a full-scale invasion led by Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24, 2022.

Despite Ukraine's valiant defense and support from Western countries, the Kremlin's latest threats indicate that Russia is not willing to back down, raising concerns about the future stability of Ukraine and the broader region.
