Putin ally vows to destroy West if it attempts to defeat Russia
Putin security chief vows to destroy the West with hypersonic nukes if it attempts to defeat Russia – and says Moscow must be allowed to dominate Europe
- Nikolai Patrushev’s comments showed how conspiracies are rampant in Kremlin
- He is seen as being the brains behind Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine
Vladimir Putin is ready to destroy the West with hypersonic nuclear weapons if it attempts to defeat and dismember Russia, his top security aide has warned.
Nikolai Patrushev demanded that Moscow must be allowed to dominate Europe after the supposed impending collapse of the EU.
The 71-year-old hardline ideologue – seen by some as the brains behind Putin’s ill-conceived war in Ukraine – showed in an interview how conspiracy theories are rampant inside the Kremlin, as the seat of Russian power grows isolated.
‘Some people in the West are already talking about revenge that would lead to a military victory over Russia,’ he said.
Ignoring the fact that Putin ordered a brutal invasion of sovereign Ukraine last year, while frequently threatening full-scale world war, Patrushev claimed: ‘Russia is patient and is not intimidating anyone with its military superiority.

‘However, it possesses unique modern weaponry capable of destroying any adversary including the US in case of a threat to its existence.’
His chilling threats included Putin’s demand to dominate Europe.

The US currently ‘does as it pleases in Europe ignoring the fact that the leading role on the continent has historically been Russia’s’, he told the Kremlin’s mouthpiece newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
‘The Russian empire’s in the 19th century, the Soviet Union’s in the 20th.
‘That’s how it will be in the 21st century as well.’
Patrushev, longtime secretary of Russia’s security council, is seen to be plotting for his son Dmitry Patrushev, 45, now Putin’s agriculture minister, to take over from the dictator as president if he is felled by ill-health or ousted due to war failures.
But the ex-FSB chief warned: ‘Nato countries are a party to the [Ukraine] conflict. They have turned Ukraine into one big military camp…
‘In trying to prolong this military confrontation as long as possible, they are not hiding their main goal – the defeat of Russia on the battlefield and its further dismemberment.
‘The US authorities’ unrestrained aspiration to retain the dominant role in the world has at least since 1945 been the source of all instances of escalation in tensions on the global scale.
‘American politicians that are hostage to their own propaganda for some reason retain the conviction that in case of a direct conflict with Russia the US would be capable of delivering a preventive missile strike, after which Russia would no longer be able to respond.
‘That is shortsighted idiocy of a very dangerous kind.’
The Putin henchman claimed the US uses ‘military-biological laboratories to create new viruses to destroy the peoples of unwanted countries while once clean American cities are drowning in filth and rubbish’.
‘False’ war crimes allegations are made against Putin and his entourage while the West ‘turns a blind eye to real acts of genocide and financial machinations carried out with the White House’s approval’.
In Patrushev’s analysis ‘the collapse of the EU is not far off’.
He claimed: ‘The paradox lies in that Washington is directly interested in the break-up of the EU, to remove its economic rival, to not allow Europe to prosper through cooperation with Russia.’
Meanwhile, according to the Kremlin ‘there can be no doubt that sooner or later the US’s southern neighbours will regain the territories stolen from them’.
In his warped analysis, sanctions against Putin such as curbs on Western medical supplies to Russia by major pharmaceuticals are redolent of Hitler’s gas chambers.
‘It is well known that most of these same companies at one time worked on the development of poison gases and soul-killing agents for Nazi Germany,’ he said.
‘They fully supported the ideology of genocide of the so-called ‘superfluous’ peoples.’
His rant continued: ‘Let us remember how the same Anglo-Saxons fostered the Nazis in the 1930s, hoping to direct them against the Soviet Union.
‘Having earned financial and geopolitical dividends from World War II, today Washington and London are once again indulging in Nazism and fascism.
‘Using Ukraine, they do not mind stirring up a pan-European or even global conflict, imagining that they can get away with it.’

His diatribe appeared an attempt to rally a Moscow elite increasingly doubtful over the wisdom of Putin and Patrushev’s direction.
The West ‘has opposed our country more than once.
‘Sometimes under the banners of the Poles and Swedes, sometimes with Napoleonic eagles, under the British flag or under the Hitler swastika.
‘The result is the same – all attempts to crush Russia are in vain.’
