War can be ended quickly either through peace treaty or nuclear weapons: Top Russian official

On Wednesday, Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy head of the Russian Security Council, made a statement suggesting that any war could be swiftly concluded either by signing a peace treaty or resorting to the use of nuclear weapons.
In an interview with Russian state-run TASS news agency, Medvedev said Japan capitulated after the US dropped nuclear bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

“In general, any war, even a world war, can be ended very quickly. Either if a peace treaty is signed, or if you do what the Americans did in 1945, when they used their nuclear weapons and bombed two Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They (the Japanese army), indeed, then curtailed the military campaign. The price is the life of almost 300,000 civilians,” he said.

As for the Russian “special military operation” in Ukraine, it will be over in days if NATO stops supplying Kyiv with weapons, the official claimed.

“If NATO, the US, and their vassals stopped supplying weapons and means of destruction to Ukraine, then the special military operation would be completed in just a few months, and if they stop supplying their weapons now, then their military operation will be over in a few days,” he said.

Medvedev, who served as the Russian president from 2008-2012, also praised the Russian army, calling it “heroic.”
