In the weeks leading up to the start of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, scenarios for a possible nuclear attack on Germany were discussed in the Russian army.

Welt writes about this   , citing sources.

Such conclusions were reached by the Western intelligence services, which intercepted the conversation of the Russians during the planned maneuvers of the Russian fleet in the Baltic Sea at the end of last year.

It is noted that the military radio message spoke of nuclear strikes on three targets: Berlin, the US air base in Ramstein and Buchel air base, where the United States stores nuclear bombs. Security experts rated this information differently.

Some of them believe that the use of nuclear weapons is usually discussed and practiced in military exercises – this happened during NATO maneuvers as well. Such conversations do not always pose a real danger. However, according to others, the Russians may have known that they were being tapped, so they deliberately talked about a nuclear strike in order to intimidate opponents and stir up fear in the West.

Russia and the threat of a nuclear strike

The threats of the aggressor state intensified after the announcement of “partial” mobilization in Russia on 21 September. Then Russian President Vladimir Putin  said that “the wind rose can turn” towards the West.

After the damage to the Crimean bridge, the Kremlin  evaded a direct answer  to the question of the use of nuclear weapons in response to such events.

Later, Russian Foreign Minister  Sergei Lavrov said that the nuclear doctrine would also apply to the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, which the Russian Federation tried to annex following the results of fake “referenda”.

Experts note that Russia’s nuclear threats  do not yet go beyond words  and there is no real preparation for an attack.

President Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the situation on the battlefield will not affect Russia’s decision to  use nuclear weapons against Ukraine . At the same time, American leader Joe Biden wondered why the Kremlin dictator kept talking about nuclear weapons if he wasn’t going to use them.

  1. It proves of mafia land’s utter irresponsibility to constantly swing the nuclear club. It seems as if these jerks are more like monkeys with pistols than sane, adult human beings that should know that a nuclear war cannot and will not have winners. It is of the utmost importance that this country has its entire nuclear stockpile taken away, and its current leadership locked away for life or executed.

    • Only execution will do when crimes against humanity are committed. I wonder if the Nuremberg venue still exists. It would be a beautiful to have Putin before the bar in the same room the Nazi war criminals were tried.
