Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has called on the Americans to revolt over the alleged imminent arrest of ex-US President Donald Trump. “Take back the country, Americans! To battle!” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel on Saturday. How seriously the 57-year-old meant his demands remained unclear. He concluded his comment with the probably ironic remark that he wrote this at the request of the presidential candidate “Colonel Daniil Fyodorovich Trump”. He was probably alluding to speculation about the relationship between the former US President and the Kremlin.

Trump had recently called on his supporters to protest because he is said to be arrested in three days. The 76-year-old is being investigated in connection with a hush money payment to a porn actress. Trump denies the allegations.

In his text, Medvedev also addressed the arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court against Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin. “The idiots in Europe want to arrest a stranger, and on March 21 their own will be arrested in America,” Medvedev wrote.

Medvedev has attracted attention several times in recent months with extremely sharp and sometimes bizarre attacks on the West. Observers suspect that the politician, who was once considered more of a liberal, wants to give himself the image of a hardliner for a possible successor to Putin.
