Russia says it’s ready for ‘big, colossal war’ with NATO

Russian general turned lawmaker, Andrei Gurulyov says “London” will be a prime target should war erupt.

The Russian military is ready for a potentially massive conflict with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, according to a retired Russian general and member of the country’s legislature on Friday.
During a panel discussion on the state-run Russia 1 channel, “Evening with Vladimir Solovyev” host Vladimir Solovyev asked the panel to assess why Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine had elicited so much support for the Ukrainian government from the countries in the western NATO alliance. During the discussion, Russian military general-turned-lawmaker Andrei Gurulyov said Russia is preparing for everything, including “a big colossal war” with NATO, should the current conflict in Ukraine escalate.

“Let’s look at current military operations,” Gurulyov began his remarks before describing the support NATO has provided to Ukraine’s government thus far.

“They thought they could stop us with Soviet arms, but they couldn’t stop us,” Gurulyov said. He also said NATO had thought the fighting in Ukraine might die down after Russian forces backed away from the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, but the conflict has only continued.

“They’re starting to realize that sooner or later, we will achieve the goals set by our president, of the denazification of the entire territory of Ukraine,” Gurulyov added, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claimed reason for ordering the invasion of Ukraine.
