Russia Security Chief Threatens Nuclear SUBSTITUTE FOR Protect New Territories

  • On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a stark warning, stating that Russia was prepared to do whatever it took to safeguard its territorial integrity.
  • Dmitry Medvedev, Russias security chief, took it one step further, stating that Donbas republics will undoubtedly be accepted into Russia, and suggesting Moscow will be ready to use nuclear weapons to safeguard the regions.
  • Russia has announced that not merely mobilization capabilities, but additionally any Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons and weapons predicated on new principles, could possibly be useful for such protection, he said.

Once more Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy chairman of Russias Security Council, has served the role of issuing more serious ‘read between your lines’ warnings and threats fresh off President Vladimir Putin’s Wednesday speech announcing partial mobilization of national forces and which confirmed referendums of occupied portions of Ukraine to become listed on the Russian Federation. Putin’s most alarming line came when he said, “If the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we shall certainly use all of the means at our disposal to safeguard Russia and our people,” following with “Its not just a bluff.” He previously also stressed Moscow is preparing to use “all available” methods to protect its “territorial integrity”.

Medvedev has had the president’s words further in Thursday statements, stressing that regarding Russian-seized territory and the proceed to vote in a number of areas – like the LPR, DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions – “there is absolutely no heading back” and that a good ‘nuclear option’ could possibly be up for grabs.

“The Donbas [Donetsk and Luhansk] republics along with other territories will undoubtedly be accepted into Russia,” he posted to Telegram. That’s once the former president and top national security official doubled down on Putin’s nuclear warning, stating:

Russia has announced that not merely mobilization capabilities, but additionally any Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons and weapons predicated on new principles, could possibly be useful for such protection.

Putin and Medvedev’s statements mark the 1st time any top Russian officials have affirmed readiness to create newly acquired Russian territories under Moscow’s nuclear doctrine.

However, it remains that Russian forces usually do not yet control 100% of the four main territories where annexation votes should be held – with some referendums set for early as this weekend in accordance with prior reports.

To examine of days gone by 48 hours of Kremlin decision-making that is poised to escalate this war even more, this is actually the logical span of what just got enacted in the call-up of some 300,000 reservists:

  • Conscripts were previously told they don’t be delivered to Ukraine to fight because they’re stationed/defend inside Russia
  • Ukrainian-held territories are actually going to vote to become listed on the Russian Federation.
  • When these territories join Russian they are “inside Russia.” They’re Russian oblasts and attempts to guard (formerly) Ukrainian territory would then mark an invasion of Russian territory supported by NATO equipment.
  • Thus Medvedev’s warning of ‘willingness’ to utilize nukes covers these territories inside Ukraine.

Putin’s emphasis of the is “not just a bluff” notwithstanding, some analysts say that is about posturing to be able to scare NATO away from escalation

I believe it signals he wants visitors to think he’d risk nuclear war, Phillips OBrien, a professor of strategic studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. I dont think this means he is any longer likely to take action than he was yesterday.

“If he says that any attack on soil he calls Russia will likely be a nuclear tripwire, Ukraines already broken that in Crimea,” OBrien added in comments directed at NBC. Yet Washington says it really is taking this nuclear rhetoric seriously.

Are you aware that White House, President Biden in his Wednesday UN General Assembly speech in NY called out Putin’s overt, reckless and irresponsible nuclear threats, warning that such wars shouldn’t be fought and that Russia’s actions should make everyone’s blood run cold. He renewed his warning of a nuclear war can’t be won – saying the united states will not seek a cold war.
