Medvedev warns against interference in other countries' affairs

Military interference in other countries` domestic affairs could lead to a fully fledged war, in which the use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out, Russia`s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said addressing the International Legal forum held in Saint Petersburg.

Military interference in other countries` domestic affairs could lead to a fully fledged war, in which the use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out, Russia`s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said addressing the International Legal forum held in Saint Petersburg.

Mr. Medvedev added that joint sanctions imposed on any country in violation of international law would not benefit the international community, and the consequences of hasty military operations in foreign countries usually lead to the seizure of power by radical politicians.

“Some day such actions which undermine another state`s sovereignty could turn into a fully fledged regional war, so - and I am not trying to frighten anybody - one could not rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a consequence”, Medvedev said.
