His top security aide has warned Vladimir Putin that he is ready to destroy the West with hypersonic nuclear weapons if he tries to defeat and dismember Russia.
Nikolai Patrushev demanded that Moscow should be allowed to take over Europe after the supposed imminent collapse of the European Union.
The 71-year-old hardline ideologue – seen by some as the mastermind behind Putin’s ill-conceived war in Ukraine – showed in an interview how conspiracy theories run rampant within the Kremlin, as Russia’s center of power grows increasingly isolated.
“Some people in the West are already talking about a retaliation 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 often threatening large-scale world war, Patrushev claimed: ‘Russia is patient and doesn’t scare anyone with its military superiority.

Nikolai Patrushev, Putin’s top ally (pictured, file photo) demanded that Moscow be allowed to take over Europe after the supposed imminent collapse of the European Union.
However, it possesses unique modern weapons capable of destroying any opponent including the United States in the event of a threat to its existence.
His apocalyptic threats included demanding that Putin take over Europe.
He told the Kremlin’s mouthpiece, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, that the United States “does what it likes in Europe, ignoring the fact that Russia’s leading role on the continent was historical.”
The Russian Empire in the Nineteenth Century, and the Soviet Empire in the Twentieth Century.
“This will be the case in the twenty-first century, too.”
Patrushev, longtime secretary of Russia’s Security Council, is seen as plotting for his son Dmitry Patrushev, 45, Putin’s current agriculture minister, to take over as president from the dictator if he falls due to ill health or is deposed by war failures.
But the former head of the FSB warned: “NATO countries are a party to the conflict (Ukraine). They have turned Ukraine into a large military camp …
Trying to prolong this military confrontation as long as possible, they do not hide their main goal – to defeat Russia on the battlefield and further dismember it.
The unbridled aspiration of the US authorities to retain the dominant role in the world since at least 1945 has been the source of all escalations of tensions on a global scale.
American politicians who are holding on to their own propaganda for some reason maintain the conviction that in the event of a direct conflict with Russia, the United States will be able to deliver a preemptive missile strike, after which Russia will not be able to respond.
“This is short-sighted folly of a very dangerous kind.”
Putin’s followers have claimed that the United States is using “military biological laboratories to create new viruses to destroy the people of unwanted countries while drowning clean American cities in filth and rubbish”.
“False” allegations of war crimes are made against Putin and his entourage while “the West turns a blind eye to genuine acts of genocide and financial machinations carried out with the White House’s sanction.”
In Patrushev’s analysis, “the collapse of the European Union is not far off.”
And he claimed: “The irony is that Washington is directly interested in the disintegration of the European Union, in order to remove its economic competitor, and not to allow Europe to prosper through cooperation with Russia.”
Meanwhile, according to the Kremlin, “there can be no doubt that sooner or later the southern neighbors of the United States will return the lands stolen from them.”
In his distorted analysis, the sanctions imposed on Putin, such as restrictions on Western medical supplies to Russia by Big Pharma, reek of Hitler’s gas chambers.
“It is known that most of these same companies worked simultaneously to develop poison gases and life-killing agents for Nazi Germany,” he said.
They fully supported the ideology of the genocide of the so-called “superfluous” peoples.
He went on: “Let us remember how the same Anglo-Saxons sponsored the Nazis in the 1930s, hoping to direct them against the Soviet Union.
Having reaped financial and geopolitical profits from World War II, today Washington and London are once again immersed in Nazism and fascism.
“Using Ukraine, they don’t mind provoking an all-European or even global conflict, and they imagine they can get away with it.”

His speech appeared to be an attempt to rally a Moscow elite increasingly questionable about 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 Napoleon’s eagles, under the British flag or under Hitler’s swastika.
“The result is the same – all attempts to crush Russia are in vain.”
