NEWS: Putin ally warns Texas border battle could spark civil war in US
Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday made an ominous warning that an “even more destructive” civil war may erupt in Texas due to the ongoing migrant crisis.
The ex-leader and ally of current Russian president Vladimir Putin warned of what might come as a result of America’s “total inability to cope with the migration crisis,” in a post to X on Friday.
“Its governor stopped giving even the slightest damn as to what the White House and its senile old man Biden think, and started to mend barbed wire fences,” Medvedev wrote referencing the ongoing feud between the Biden Administration and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over border security.
On Wednesday, Abbott proclaimed the Lone Star State’s right to self-defense “supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary” — just days after the US Supreme Court sided with Biden, allowing US Border Patrol agents to temporarily remove the razor wire laid across the US-Mexico border under Abbott’s orders.
“This is yet another vivid example of the US hegemony getting weaker, a process that is happening from the inside, and is the result of the Americans’ own actions,” Medvedev continued.
The Putin ally goes on to say that America is “so eagerly supporting the Kiev neonazis,” referencing the nearly 2-year-old war in Ukraine, but has become “seemingly blind to everything else.”
“With their inaction, these very authorities can drive the people of Texas up the wall – the very people who are even now mulling over separation,” Medvedev wrote.
Medvedev, who currently serves as the Deputy Chair of Russia’s Security Council, has previously predicted that Texas would secede from the rest of the country, despite the country legally not being able to do so.
“There are known cases in history when some states tried to break away from the Union and form the Confederacy. The end result was the bloody civil war which cost thousands upon thousands of lives. Either way, America can face an unsolvable constitutional crisis, and for long, fall into the abyss of a new, possibly even more destructive civil confrontation,” he added.
The State Department dismissed Medvedev’s claims, telling Newsweek on Saturday, “We know by now not to take Medvedev seriously. This is standard Kremlin nonsense.”
The Department of State did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment Sunday.
