Dmitry Medvedev: Chances of new World War exist… (Russian president gives his view on WWII)

We don’t publish speeches and interviews with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev too often. But this one – I think is very important. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev gave an interview for Russian newspaper “Izvestia”.

That is a long interview almost 30 minutes video. They brought up different questions mostly about World War II and it was very interesting to hear opinion of such intelligent person as Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. I personally think that the whole interview is worth watching.

Izvestia: During Perestroika when the people of the Soviet Union opened its doors to the world, you could feel that civilizations had grown up, the world order had matured and nothing like World War II would ever happen again. But 20 years later, the world is still torn apart by conflict. Do you think there is at least a hypothetic possibility of a military conflict that would be similar to World War II in scale?

Dmitry Medvedev: Unfortunately, such a conflict is possible, because there are all sorts of countries on our planet, and they have all sorts of interests. This planet has a huge amount of weapons, and there are people who still consider war as a means for solving their political problems. After all, accidents will happen. So we must be prepared….
