Putin just carried out a series of potentially pregnant nuclear missile attacks

Russian forces held exercises this week simulating nuclear-capable attacks near the borders of the European Union, the Russian Defense Ministry revealed.

Members of the Baltic Fleet held war games on Wednesday to “perform mock missile strikes with the crews of the Iskander operational-tactical missile system” in Kaliningrad. The press service of the Western Military District said in a statement.

The drills, held near the borders of EU member states Poland and Lithuania, come amid a growing number of Kremlin mouths-triggered attempts at vehicles. Russian state media aimed to sell the idea that a nuclear attack was inevitable.

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan last month said it was “more likely” that Russia’s war in Ukraine would end in a nuclear attack than Vladimir Putin simply backing down.

On Russia’s state-owned Channel One, Russian lawmaker Aleksei Zhuravlyov and TV presenter Olga Skabeyeva even went as far as to openly discuss the prospect of Moscow’s nuclear missiles targeting Britain. , Germany and France.

Putin himself has alluded to nuclear attacks, telling lawmakers last week that Russia would retaliate “lightningly fast” if anyone dared “interfere with current events.” out” in Ukraine.

“We have all the tools for this, which no one else can boast right now. And we won’t brag, we’ll use them if necessary. And I want people to know that,” he said.

Although the Russian Defense Ministry’s statement on Wednesday’s war game did not explicitly mention simulated nuclear strikes, the Iskander missile, with a range of about 300 miles, is known to be capable of carry nuclear warheads. From Kaliningrad, Western Ukraine, Poland, the Baltic states, and even parts of Germany would be within striking distance.

Soldiers taking part in the exercise are also said to have practiced “actions under conditions of radioactive and chemical contamination of the area.”
