Poles accused Russia of "the temptation to use nuclear weapons"


A report appeared on the website of the US State Department about the importance of low-power warheads, which the Americans began to deploy in submarines. The power of the W76-2 warheads discussed in the report is 5-6 kilotons.


Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova criticized the report, noting that any attack using such weapons would be perceived by Russia as a nuclear attack, which would entail an adequate retaliatory strike.

Journalists of the Polish publication wPolityce.pl in this regard believe that the Russian Federation can apply the strategy of “escalation for the sake of de-escalation”. That is, in the event of a Russian attack on Poland or the Baltic countries (which official Warsaw does not exclude), the Russian authorities can use tactical missiles with nuclear warheads.

What response opportunities will NATO and the US have? Since Russia is stronger than its overseas “partner” in the field of tactical nuclear weapons, the United States will have no choice but to apply the doctrine of “massive retaliation”, at the risk of unleashing a full-scale nuclear war.

However, since Eisenhower’s presidency, such a scenario has not been seriously considered in the United States. Therefore, according to some Polish experts, with such a development of the situation, Russia may be tempted to use nuclear weapons - after all, it is unlikely to receive an adequate answer, the Poles are sure.

    The Poles themselves chose the fate of the "battlefield" or "no-man's land", politicians also modestly call it "cordon sanitaire". Now, some have realized that in the event of a conflict, both their own and others will be shooting at Poland. What will be left of Poland?

      No. They proudly call the Baltic states, Poland, Ukraine - EARTHWORK between Russian resources and German technologies. Germany is still an enemy of the United States, albeit in a muzzle.

    ... Russia as a nuclear attack, which would entail an adequate retaliatory strike.

    laughing You know in color permanent half measures from "our everything" in such a scenario something is not believed at all, let's be frank. You can shout until tomorrow and beat yourself with your heels into your terribly patriotic and mighty chest. But as they say, what is, what is. It will be first up to forgive, for example, the loss of our group of troops (bases, ships ..). Then ... maybe. In short, "SkliKhasovsky". laughing All this garbage is not serious. And there is still a bunch of "our" most expensive in the West. wassat Including their kids, girls, money, etc. etc. Oh! Let's not even discuss this garbage.

    Poland is not a country, but a territory through which Russians and Germans go to fight with each other.

      Poland was recreated 100 years ago as the main limitrophy that impedes cooperation between Russians and Germans. For the union of Russia and Germany is a terrible nightmare of the arrogant Saxons.

    Not this way. They will not shoot at them. I mean tactical nuclear weapons. This is what it will be: there, to Warsaw, our charges will fall, and STRIKED aliens. Of course, I do not mean the city, but the country.
