Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Secretary of Russia’s Security Council and the head of the nation’s armaments and war production -the same position created for Albert Speer (see Medvedev: The Right Man For Some Job)– used his personal Telegram channel to call for the death of Ukraine’s president and suggested he be replaced with someone designated to surrender. Medevev’s statement was posted following yesterday’s alleged drone attack on the Kremlin, which Russia immediately claimed was officially ordered by Ukraine.

Video of the drone incident clearly shows the UAV veering off and away from the Kremlin peak before exploding in thin air. Even without video evidence, many people, of both military and civilian backgrounds, assessed the escapade as a Russian-orchestrated matter. To wit: Putin was not on the premises at the time of the attack, and the Kremlin was basically undamaged. A number of military sources in the West griped that it must’ve been staged by Russia, because, video proofs aside, Russia has for quite a while added to its intricate air defenses around Moscow, which is heavily fortified by the 1st Air and Missile Defense Army, manning S-300 and S-400 and Palantir surface-to-air missiles, caught by satellite imagery this year.

The drone show certainly seemed no surprise to Russia, as Medevev almost instantaneously popped up with his statement, which read: “After today’s terrorist attack, there are no options left except for the physical elimination of Zelenskiy and his cabal. It is not even needed to sign the act of unconditional surrender. Hitler, as you know, did not sign it either. There will always be some kind of changer like the Zitz President Admiral Dönitz…”

While Medevev was confounding the world with his Third Reich glossolalia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy denied any involvement as he prepared for his arrival today to make an appearance at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. While insisting that Putin and Co should be put on trial there, Zelelnskiy took a moment to respond to Medvedev’s outburst, saying: “This is not an interesting topic. We will not talk to such people about anything. I think they [the Russians] need to think about how to change the climate in their own country, their regime, and then they can prepare their society for any diplomatic possibilities to end this war.”

Zelenskiy’s calm summation is the same I myself made last March: The real war is in Russia, started by Russia, against Russia. It is there that Russia can end it.
