Russian National Security Council leader Dmitry Medvedev threatened nuclear attacks over an announcement by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to issue an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The threat against the ICC also extended to any country willing to serve the warrant to arrest Putin.

“Let’s imagine that it has happened. The incumbent head of a nuclear country arrives in, say, Germany and is arrested. What does it mean?" Mevedev said in a press conference.
"A declaration of war against Russia. In such a case, all our weapons will target the Bundestag, the [German] Chancellor’s office and so on," he added.

The threat also comes as both the European Union and the U.S. continue to provide billions of dollars of weapons to Ukraine in its war against invading Russia.
"The EU is sending one million artillery shells to Ukraine at the eye-watering price of two billion Euros, meanwhile the United Kingdom has confirmed it would be sending depleted uranium anti-tank rounds along with the main battle tanks it is donating to the country," Breitbart News reported this week.
"A long-anticipated arms procurement deal by EU members-plus-Norway through the European Defence Agency to procure and send one million 155mm artillery rounds to Ukraine has been agreed, ending months of discussion," it added.

The U.S. announced another $350 billion to Ukraine this week despite no authorization from Congress for a war in Europe.
The massive spending has led to a concern from many Americans, including some conservative lawmakers, who are starting to speak out on the "blank check" attitude toward Ukraine.
The latest remarks by Russia's security leader, however, show the seriousness of the situation as nuclear threats grow.
The U.S. must continue to carefully navigate the conflict between Russia and Ukraine to both protect its own interests and to help others in need suffering from Russia's invasion.
