Medvedev sees risk of civil war in US

The Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation noted that the discord in the United States "is somewhat irreconcilable"

MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. Discord among the US elites can lead to a civil war, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with TASS and RT.

"America is currently in a state of disarray and conflict with itself. In my view, this discord is irreconcilable in a way, and such domestic conflicts often lead to civil wars," Medvedev noted. "I don’t know what will happen in the US but this is the current level of conflict," he added.

According to the Russian politician, the US is a country where a former president is facing criminal charges. "What’s the goal of that? It’s not just about doing justice but also about preventing Trump from running in the next election," he said.

Medvedev also pointed to "great discord among the elites." "Confrontation is underway between the conservative Republican political establishment and the liberal sector represented by the Democratic Party, which has in fact torn American apart," he noted.
