A pal to Russian president Vladimir Putin has foamed at the mouth over the potential for World War Three and blasted the "mad West".
Dmitry Medvedev, the current Deputy Chairman of Russia's Security Council, warned an all-out global conflict was "fast approaching" as he warned Russia's invasion of Ukraine would continue.
The full-scale invasion, which began in February 2022, has seen Russian troops occupy a number of cities and regions of Ukraine, who has just received a "long term" security package from NATO.

An announcement in Lithuania today for a package which will help Ukraine "end the war" seems to have left Russian leaders furious, not least Chairman Medvedev.
Putin's pal said: "The completely mad West has failed to invent anything else. In fact, it is a dead end.
"World War III is approaching. What does all this mean for us? Everything is obvious. The special military operation will continue with the same goals."
His furious statement backing the "military operation" in Ukraine comes as the United Kingdom's statement on the G7 care package was released, the Daily Mail reported.
A statement released by the UK Government read: "The joint declaration, expected to be signed by all members of the G7, will set out how allies will support Ukraine over the coming years to end the war and deter and respond to any future attack."

Despite the joint declaration, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy was left furious by the lack of "respect" his country had received during NATO talks.
He tweeted: "But Ukraine also deserves respect. Now, on the way to Vilnius, we received signals that certain wording is being discussed without Ukraine."
President Zelenskyy's fury comes from not being given a firm timeline for if and when Ukraine can join NATO, but President Joe Biden believes conflict in the region will need to come to an end before a membership offer is made.
The Daily Star previously reported the claim, with President Biden claiming the war in Ukraine must be ended before they join the international government body.
