Putin’s Aide Warns US Against Pressing For War Crimes Court

The United States may incur the “wrath of God,” a top Kremlin official warned on Wednesday, if it continues to support efforts to help establish an international tribunal to look into Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

The lower house speaker for Russia encouraged Washington to keep in mind that Alaska was formerly part of Russia.

The U.S. has been criticized for its efforts to “spread chaos and destruction across the world for the sake of ‘true democracy,'” according to Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, which is presided over by President Vladimir Putin.

“The entire U.S. history since the times of subjugation of the native Indian population represents a series of bloody wars,” Medvedev charged in a long diatribe on his Telegram channel, pointing out the U.S. nuclear bombing of Japan during World War II and the war in Vietnam.

“Was anyone held responsible for those crimes? What tribunal condemned the sea of blood spilled by the U.S. there?”

According to Medvedev, the U.S. is attempting “to judge others while remaining immune from any trial” by supporting proposals for an international tribunal to try Russia for alleged war crimes committed in Ukraine.

“It won’t work with Russia, they know it well,” Medvedev concluded. “That’s why the rotten dogs of war are barking in such a disgusting way.”

“The U.S. and its useless stooges should remember the words of the Bible: Do not judge and you will not be judged … so that the great day of His wrath doesn’t come to their home one day,” Medvedev said, referring to the Apocalypse.

He noted that the “idea to punish a country with the largest nuclear potential is absurd and potentially creates the threat to mankind’s existence.”

The warning comes after a string of stern declarations from Putin and his staff that cautioned the West against intervening with Moscow’s actions in Ukraine and pointed to the Russian nuclear arsenals.

When Putin was forced to become prime minister due to term restrictions in 2008, Medvedev took over as president of Russia and was widely seen by the West as being more liberal than his mentor. However, in recent months, he has made statements that have come off as considerably stronger than those made by the Kremlin’s most aggressive officials.

Vyacheslav Volodin, a longstanding Putin ally and speaker of the lower house of parliament, issued another bellicose threat to the United States on Wednesday, saying that when Washington freezes Russian assets, it should keep in mind that Alaska was once a part of Russia. Up until the United States bought Alaska from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million, Russia colonized Alaska and built various colonies there.

“When they attempt to appropriate our assets abroad, they should be aware that we also have something to claim back,” Volodin said during a meeting with lawmakers.
