Russia has condemned Kyiv’s bid to form a NATO-like international security alliance as a “prelude” to World War Three as it faces strategic losses amid its war in Ukraine.

“The Kyiv Camarilla has given birth to a project of” security guarantees “, which is basically a precursor to the third world war,” Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev stated, according to Russian state-owned media, Dmitry Medvedev.

Medvedev claimed that no one would agree to any of the “guarantees” Kyiv sought from international partners, and argued that they would amount to “the application of Article 5 of NATO to Ukraine”.

Article 5 of NATO states that an attack on one country in the 30-member alliance – of which Ukraine is not a part – would trigger a response from all member states.

The article acts as a deterrent from aggressive countries like Russia that will have to confront not only the US military but also 29 other advanced Western armies, many of which share a border with Russia.

Moscow tried to justify its illegal invasion of Ukraine due to allegations that Kyiv was too close to NATO and demanded a pledge not to join the alliance.

Ukraine reportedly agreed to Moscow’s request in the early days of the war when peace negotiations were underway, although it appears that Kyiv may still stick to that pledge after talks with Russia failed amid its ongoing invasion.

“We are working to ensure that the strongest citizens of the free world become guarantors of the security of our state,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his speech last night. Together with our partners, we have already built a powerful anti-war coalition that includes dozens of different countries.

He added, “We are now working to ensure that the strongest countries that are actually helping us become an everlasting peace alliance.”

Top Ukrainian officials on Tuesday presented a proposal dubbed the “Kyiv Initiative” that looks to forge an agreement with major global players that would bolster the international response if Ukraine is again attacked by Russia.

The United States is not specifically listed as a country with which Ukraine is currently in talks, although it has provided much more assistance than any other country to Ukraine in its war against Russia.

It is unclear how the US will respond to such calls, and Fox News was not immediately able to reach the State Department for comment.

The Chief of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andrei Yermak, held an online meeting with officials from the former Soviet and Eastern Bloc countries including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary.

Yermak called on partner countries to agree to specific bilateral security guarantees in a joint framework known as the “Kyiv Security Pact”.

Washington has backed away from helping Ukraine and trying to avoid aggravating Moscow to the point of triggering a world war — an outcome that Russian leaders have suggested might come if Western nations sign a security pact with Kyiv.

However, Ukraine appears determined to eventually join NATO despite Russia’s blatant threats.

“In order to successfully carry out these tasks, Ukraine must have guaranteed security after the war. This means that we must receive reliable international security guarantees for the period of time until Ukraine becomes a full member of the European Union and NATO,” Yermak said.
