Vladimir Putin, asserted that his country has nuclear weapons available and threatened to use them if any country dares to intervene with military means to stop the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
(MEXICO – TYT).- The threat of the Russian president sparked visions of a nightmarish outcome where Putin’s ambitions in Ukraine could lead to nuclear war by accident or miscalculation .
” As for military affairs, even after the dissolution of the USSR and the loss of a considerable part of its capabilities, Russia today remains as one of the most powerful nuclear states ,” Putin said in his pre-release speech on Thursday morning.
“ Also, Russia has state-of-the-art weapons. In this context, there should be no doubt for anyone that any potential aggressor will face defeat and sinister consequences if he directly attacks our country .”
By simply suggesting a nuclear response , Putin is insinuating the ominous possibility that the current fighting in Ukraine could eventually turn into an atomic confrontation between Russia and the United States .
For a short time after World War II, the United States had a nuclear monopoly, but just a few years later the Soviet Union announced its own nuclear armament, and people was always afraid of a nuclear confrontation during the whole period of the so-called “Cold War”, which embarked the Bear and the Eagle on an arms race to build and develop ever larger weapons.
