DESPERATION: Putin Puts Nuclear Forces on 'High Alert'

Linkedin Share

It seems as those things really aren’t going Vladimir Putin’s way in Ukraine, and the Russian dictator appears to be acting erratically on account of this failure.

According to US Senator Marco Rubio, Putin’s plans had suggested that he’d have Ukraine in his control in just a matter of days.  In fact, the Rubio went so far as to tweet the details of Putin’s timeline in order to demonstrate just how poorly things are going for the overhyped Russian military.

And now the Russian military is in some “emperor’s new clothes”-like situation, Vladimir Putin’s desperation is showing.

In a dramatic escalation of East-West tensions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian nuclear deterrent forces put on alert Sunday in response to what he called “aggressive statements” by leading NATO powers.

The move means Putin has ordered Russia’s nuclear weapons prepared for increased readiness to launch, raising the threat that the tensions could boil over into a nuclear war. In giving it, the Russian leader also cited hard-hitting financial sanctions imposed by the West against Russia, including Putin himself.

In true crybaby fashion, Putin blamed the sanctions that he invited upon himself by invading Ukraine.

Putin, in giving the nuclear alert directive, cited not only the alleged statements by NATO members but the hard-hitting financial sanctions imposed by the West against Russia, including the Russian leader himself.

Speaking at a meeting with his top officials, Putin told his defense minister and the chief of the military’s General Staff to put the nuclear deterrent forces in a “special regime of combat duty.”

“Western countries aren’t only taking unfriendly actions against our country in the economic sphere, but top officials from leading NATO members made aggressive statements regarding our country,” Putin said in televised comments.

How Putin can see his invasion of Ukraine as somehow less unfriendly than being sanctioned for it, after being warned for months, is laughable at best and belies the Russian leader’s embarrassment at his military’s abject failures.
