Medvedev: EU is 51st US state

Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev accused on Wednesday the European Union of adhering excessively to the United States' policies and effectively becoming its 51st federal state.

Medvedev's comment, which he published on his social media accounts, came after European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen tweeted that Ukraine's Armed Forces (ZSU) lost 100,000 people in Russia's military intervention in that country. That post was later edited and eventually deleted.

"It is obvious that the aunt [von der Leyen] was hit on the head by the Washington regional committee," he wrote. "[....] it looks like it hurts. Looks extremely humiliating."
