Putin is assured that he cannot be the first to launch a nuclear strike
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov has said that Russia cannot be the first to launch a nuclear strike.
Source: Borisov quoted by Russian information group “Interfax”
Details: Borisov referred to the military doctrine of a nuclear strike, which allegedly prohibits Russia from being the first to launch a nuclear strike.
Borisov quote: “According to our doctrine, according to our strategy, the armed forces of the Russian Federation would only use a nuclear strike in retaliation. According to the doctrine, we would not be the first to attack.
Our President, the Commander-in-Chief, always has two naval officers with a so-called nuclear case nearby.
In the case of threats detected by air and space defense and missile attack warning systems, in the event of a launch, the fact of the attack, its trajectory and the location of the crash would be determined - these are the criteria for retaliatory action. "
As a hint: But he lies.
According to Russia's military doctrine, the country reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction against itself or its allies, as well as in the event of aggression against Russia with conventional weapons "if the existence of the state is threatened".
The pumping of weapons by NATO countries into Ukraine increases the possibility of the transition to a full-fledged nuclear war, said Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.
According to Avril Haines, chief of the US Secret Service, President Vladimir Putin is ready to use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine if the defeat of his troops in Ukraine cannot be concealed.
According to the Financial Times, Western governments are already questioning Russia's readiness for nuclear escalation and have therefore accelerated the delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine.
The leadership of the North Atlantic Alliance has no information that Russia is preparing a nuclear attack on Ukraine. Central Intelligence Agency director William Burns also said there was no clear evidence of a nuclear strike in Ukraine.
