Trending Now

Russia will retaliate against the harsh sanctions imposed by the West, stated Dmitry Medvedev, the former President of Russia, who currently serves as the Deputy Chairman of the country's Security Council.

In a message posted on social media, Medvedev articulated that the reasons behind the sanctions are clear: in his view, the misery of the Russian people serves the interests of Western countries. This is reported by Finnish Mtvuutiset.

Two-Year Anniversary of Russia's Invasion

Today marks the two-year anniversary of Russia's initiation of the war in Ukraine.

Several leaders from Western countries have arrived in Kyiv, Ukraine's capital. Later today, Italy is set to lead a meeting of the G7 nations in the city, focusing on the topic of imposing new sanctions on Russia. This gathering underscores the ongoing international efforts to respond to Russia's actions in Ukraine and the broader geopolitical tensions that have escalated as a result.

Medvedev's comments highlight the deepening rift between Russia and Western nations, further exacerbated by the conflict in Ukraine. His defiant stance reflects Russia's position on the sanctions, indicating a readiness to take measures in response. As the G7 countries convene to deliberate on additional sanctions, the global community watches closely, anticipating the potential repercussions of these actions on the already strained relations between Russia and the West.

The implications of Medvedev's statement and the outcome of the G7 meeting in Kyiv could significantly influence the course of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the international diplomatic landscape. As the situation evolves, the world remains alert to the responses from both Russia and the international community to these developments.
