Russian Prime Minister assured that the government of a country aware of its responsibility in case of confrontation, and it is obvious that we cannot allow even a hypothetical thoughts about the third world war.
MOSCOW, 11 Nov. Relationships with a number of Western States are far from ideal and are going through a difficult period, but the scenario of “cold war” in the twenty-first century is impossible, said Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
“Yes, is not simple now the international situation, but, strictly speaking, when it was simple? If to speak about the relations of our country with a number of Western States, they are now really far from perfect, they are going through a difficult period, some even talking about a second “cold war”, — said Medvedev in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
But, he said, “that’s not what the terms, specifically in the understanding” that any leader of the state, any Supreme commander — the President or Prime Minister of a country where parliamentary Republic is well aware of “the responsibility for such decisions.”
“I think that in the twenty-first century such a scenario is simply impossible”, — said Medvedev.
The Prime Minister also referred to the history of the two world wars.
“The current heads of state are really very many people remember this period. This does not mean that we all otherwise treat the tragedy of war, disasters of war time. The planet has survived all the world wars. It is obvious that nothing of the kind to avoid even in thought it is impossible”, — he stressed.
In this regard, the Russian Prime Minister quoted the words of albert Einstein about the weapons that will be used in the third world war.
“When asked what weapons would be used in the third world war, he said, “I don’t know what weapons will be used in the third world war, but the fourth world war will be used stones. He hinted that the global nuclear third world war, mankind simply will not survive, and in this sense, these estimates remain quite relevant,” Medvedev said.
