Notably, a large portion of the information issued by Russian media or official representatives often embodies elements of propaganda. Sensational news of planned military maneuvers and ubiquitous threats form part of the information warfare perpetuated by the Russian Federation.

Dmitri Medvedev, the former Russian president, strongly believes that Russian citizens will reject any alteration of their current borders. In such a scenario, the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces will not "hesitate to make the most severe decisions".

He warns that if Russia is compelled to revert to its 1991 status (that is, post-USSR disintegration), it could retaliate by instigating a global nuclear conflict.

"The downfall of Russia would have far more horrifying repercussions than the outcome of a run-of-the-mill, albeit protracted, war. Any attempts to revert Russia to its 1991 borders will inevitably lead to a global war, with Western countries at the receiving end of our entire strategic arsenal," warns Medvedev.

According to the Russian politician, hypersonic nuclear bombs would not just target Kyiv, but other cities as well, including London, Berlin, and "other historical locations" that have allegedly been on the Kremlin's radar for a significant length of time. All this is being suggested as retribution for a potential Russian defeat.

"Will we have the guts to retaliate if the survival of our thousand-year-old country and the sacrifices borne by the Russian people over the centuries all end up being in vain?" Medvedev poses rhetorically.
