Given the utter insanity that we seem to be facing on a global scale this week, it’s almost no wonder that Vladimir Putin would open his mouth and blurt out something so terrifying.
Putin, whom you may remember from years of ridiculous liberal conspiracy theories surrounding Donald Trump and the election of 2016, has been the leader of Russia for years…long past what was once deemed an acceptable length of term. He’s an iron-fisted leader who, coincidentally or not, lives up to every stereotype of a Russian mob boss from any cheesy Hollywood movie.
What’s worse is that Putin seemingly loves to antagonize the west and, in particular, the United States. That’s why it’s so important to keep an eye on what is coming out of his dictatorial mouth.
Russians will “go to heaven” as martyrs in the event of nuclear war because Moscow will only ever use nuclear weapons in retaliation, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.
“We have no concept of a preemptive strike,” Putin told a forum of international experts in the southern city of Sochi in response to a question from the audience.
“In such a situation, we expect to be struck by nuclear weapons, but we will not use them” first, he said.
“The aggressor will have to understand that retaliation is inevitable, that it will be destroyed and that we, as victims of aggression, as martyrs, will go to heaven.”
Putin’s choice to even pontificate on the subject of a nuclear holocaust is disturbing, let alone at a time in which the entire globe seems precariously perched on the precipice of calamity.
