Russia's strategic deterrence forces put on high alert

Vladimir Putin held a meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov. During the meeting, the President of the Russian Federation ordered the Russian Strategic Deterrence Forces to be put on high alert.

You see that Western countries are taking unfriendly actions against our country in economic sphere, I mean illegitimate sanctions, which everyone is well aware of. At the same time, senior officials of the leading NATO countries also allow aggressive statements against our country. Therefore, I order the Minister of Defense and the Chief of the General Staff to transfer the Deterrence Forces of the Russian Army to a special mode of combat duty.

- Putin said.

According to the reference book on defense terminology of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Strategic Deterrence Forces are the basis of the country's combat power. They are designed to deter aggression from the enemy with its subsequent defeat.

The Strategic Deterrence Forces, in turn, are divided into the Strategic Offensive Forces (SNA) and the Strategic Defensive Forces (SOS). The former include ground-based, sea-based and air-based intercontinental-range nuclear systems, long-range aviation and navy, including those with conventional high-precision weapons. SOS are the Aerospace Defense Forces, air defense and missile defense systems.

    Maybe this is a warning to those countries that continue to send lethal weapons to Ukraine? Moreover, in some of them nuclear weapons are illegally placed - they are not members of the nuclear club.

    This is preparation for a big war. The situation is pre-war, our country was declared an economic blockade, as Japan was in its time. The result was Pearl Harbor...

    If such a nice showdown with the United States reaches such a stage!? Why does civil defense not work publicly? Where are the nearest bomb shelters? Where are the instructions?

    Why can the largest nuclear power simply be robbed by freezing the money of its central bank, lowering it as the last African country? It turns out that even if you have the entire nuclear triad, you can be robbed every day?

      Because the United States, a nuclear power, and they are mad with rage. Their well-known journalist Craig Roberts recently wrote about this: "The world should hope that Russia understands that it is dealing with lunatics."
      Well, we see, well, we understand - what's next? Let yourself be torn apart by the distraught States, in the name of the rest of the world?
      Putin has already answered. Better then break them. Finish like a rabid dog. It is worth starting - it is not excluded - rabies, as a hand will remove.
      If you don't do anything, they'll break for sure. Warranty

    ...In fact: there is a struggle for resources!
    ...Western countries are coveting the natural wealth of the vast territory of the Russian Federation, and are not averse to turning it, like Ukraine, into a sparsely populated cheap agricultural appendage.
    ... The lessons of history teach that they ... do not teach anything, and it is logical that the "democratic" followers of Napoleon and Hitler attacked the defending Russian Federation in a flock.
    ... With his warning, V. Putin made them understand that now is the atomic age, and they will not get off with the Battle on the Ice.
    ...But whether he will curb his "intellectual" fifth column is a big question!

      There is no question.
      As the situation escalates, the stakes will rise for the fifth column. By the critical moment, only refined traitors will remain in it. What to do with them - there will also be clarity for everyone.
      And changes in the legislation will arrive in time for this moment

      the whole flock attacked the defending Russian Federation

      We shouldn't be so modest. Russia, geopolitically, can by no means be called on the defensive.
      Of course, they continue their historical geopolitical game, but in the 21st century we also started our own, new one - in the Eurasian geopolitical space. We are creating an alternative civilization to the West, gathering countries close to us into it. Is this a defense?
      Our conflict with them is a conflict of two expansions, two branches of development, otherwise we would have long and calmly laid down under the West

      What WE do with the fifth column in ordinary life - WE all have to decide.
      I think that the old concept of "pest" will come to life by itself, it will be filled, this time with a real and concrete meaning.
      We have them - in finance, education and culture especially. The States wasted no time during the 10 years under Yeltsin, while the country was wide open to the West.
      I'll have to roll up my sleeves and finally start cleaning my own house.
