Medvedev: “GB conducts de facto war, its officials are legitimate targets”

The deputy chairman of the Moscow Security Council: “London, eternal enemy, acts as an ally of Kiev and wages undeclared war on Russia”

London is effectively waging an undeclared war on Moscow, and this implies that British officials can be considered legitimate military targets. This was stated by the former Russian president and premier, now vice president of the Moscow Security Council, Dmitry Medvedevon Twitter.

“Today, the UK acts as an ally of Ukraineproviding her with military aid in the form of equipment and specialists, effectively waging an undeclared war against Russia. This being the case, each of its public officials (military or civilian, facilitators of war) can be regarded as a legitimate military target‘ he wrote, commenting on statements by British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly about the drone strikes on Moscow.

“The Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom, Cleverly – writes Medvedev – declared that Ukraine ‘has the legitimate right to … project force beyond its borders to undermine Russia’s ability to project force into Ukraine”. According to him, legitimate military targets across the border of Ukraine are part of its self-defense”. “I clumsy officials of the United Kingdom, our eternal enemy, they should remember that within the framework of universally recognized international law governing modern warfare, including the Hague and Geneva Conventions with their additional protocols, their state can also be considered to be at war“.
