Nuclear exercises in Russia are designed to prevent NATO from interfering with the “attack” on Ukraine, according to the Pentagon

According to US military and intelligence officials, Moscow decided to conduct major nuclear-weapon maneuvers (ICBM launches) in February that had previously been scheduled for this fall. The American newspaper Financial Times writes about this, referring to an informant in the US Congress.

Washington is convinced that this is a warning signal that the Russian Federation is going to send to NATO and that it is directly related to the situation around Ukraine. This opinion is shared by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milley, and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Avril Haynes. They spoke about this at a closed briefing in the House of Representatives (the lower house of the American Parliament) on February 3.

The Pentagon and the intelligence community think that the postponement of nuclear exercises is designed to prevent the Alliance from interfering with Russia's "attack" on Ukraine. Moscow, as it were, indicates to Washington - "do not interfere."

According to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), which is engaged in research in the field of nuclear disarmament, the Russian Federation has about 4,5 thousand nuclear warheads. According to Hudson Institute expert Rebecca Heinichs, holding the exercise at the same time as an “invasion” of Ukraine would be “an incredibly provocative and ominous signal.”

The publication concluded that the “attack” of Russia could occur between mid-February and the end of March. At the same time, earlier the White House informed that the "inevitable attack of the Russians" should take place from mid-January to mid-February.

    "Russia's attack on Ukraine" is a code that was designed for two tasks:
    - a convenient replacement in everyday life for the secret concept "our attack on Russia"
    - official "legend" for all actions of the States
    However, speaking this legend, as often happens, the States themselves believed in it.
    This is a symptom of a psychiatric disorder.
    This is what the famous American journalist Craig Robert had in mind when he wrote that Russia is dealing with crazy people.

      It's just that the United States is trying in every possible way to persuade Russia to attack Ukraine, or rather the fascist Banderastan. Netushki, since you yourself brewed this fake company, you yourself should disentangle it. This world Empire of LIE will demonstrate its entire essence.

    Will be:
    A) Recognition of the DNR and LNR.
    B) The conclusion of a military treaty with them.
    C) An ultimatum to the former Ukraine to liberate the occupied territory of the republics.
    D) In ​​case of disobedience - the liberation of the territory occupied by the enemies.
    In the latter case, the sweep will affect a much larger area. And the territorial losses of the former Ukraine will be much greater. Up to the complete disappearance of the state of Bandera.

    These are stupid. It seems that all military works are forgotten at once. No one in their right mind wages war in winter. Expensive. Only fuel and lubricants cost such a penny. Even for the fuel giant of Russia. , higher than in summer. The wounded are not always, or even as a rule, managed to be evacuated from the battlefield. They simply freeze. Yes, there are many other "pleasant" differences from the summer period. And in general, what kind of rush?
