Putin Planning to Keep Nuke Threat Fresh, Says US Military
Well, the cat is out of the bag.
Contrary to popular belief, Russia does not have the second-most advanced army in the world. In fact, it appears as though they don’t even have the second-best army in Ukraine.
And so, now that the world sees the emperor’s new clothes for what they are, Vladimir Putin likely has but one horrid trick left up his sleeve.
Vladimir Putin will edge closer to deploying a nuclear attack if Ukraine continues its valiant pushback against the invasion of Russian troops, a top US defense official warned.
Lieutenant General Scott Berrier, director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency detailed the grim concerns in a new 67-page summary of global threats on Thursday.
It raises the specter of a possible nuclear attack on Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital which has so-far resisted Russian advances, and said a desperate Putin posed a threat to the whole world.
Putin has repeatedly threatened to use nuclear force against any would-be interlopers in Ukraine, and one of his Kremlin cronies recently went so far as to suggest that a Russian nuke strike, on US soil, wouldn’t even be retaliated against.
