Shoigu explained the lack of plans to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine


The dominance of the United States and its allies on the planet is a thing of the past after Russia launched a special operation in Ukraine. This was announced on August 16 by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu during the 10th international security conference in Moscow.


During the speech, the head of the Russian military department explained that Russia had no plans to use WMD against a neighboring country. He emphasized that all reports in the media about Moscow's alleged use of tactical nuclear weapons or chemical weapons on Ukrainian territory are an outright lie.

From a military point of view, there is no need to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine to achieve the goals

He pointed out.

Shoigu recalled that the main purpose of Russia's nuclear weapons is to deter an enemy nuclear attack. At the same time, the use of nuclear weapons is limited to certain circumstances that are spelled out in the relevant Russian documents that are in the public domain and are not a secret.

The minister added that, according to available data, no one in the NATO bloc has any doubts about the future results of the NMD - all the goals set by the Russian military-political leadership in Ukraine will be achieved. He clarified that the ongoing campaign dispelled the myth about Western superweapons, which are being supplied to Kyiv to radically change the situation on the line of contact.

Samples of weapons of the West, captured in Ukraine, are carefully studied by specialists in Russia to further increase the effectiveness of Russian weapons. At the same time, the ongoing strengthening of the Alliance's military infrastructure near the borders of the Russian Federation completes the degradation of the trust and arms control mechanisms that developed in Europe during the Cold War.

In addition, the West is trying to return to Africa the order that was characteristic of the colonial period. Currently, they are trying to introduce neo-colonialism using military pressure on the governments of the independent states of the continent, support for separatist and terrorist structures. The Minister also said that the assertion that the reason for the entry of Sweden and Finland into the North Atlantic Alliance was the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine is not true.

    It looks like a strategic mistake in the statement of the Minister of Defense that there are no plans to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Plans for the use of nuclear weapons should always be in place and for all possible cases.. It should sound like there are plans, but in Ukraine we do not envisage the use of nuclear weapons, unless there are emergency changes and circumstances. Chemical weapons are prohibited, and the Russian Federation has always adhered and adheres to the ban on the spread and use of chemical weapons. The minister must precisely define and formulate the military strategy of the state and every word is weighty and unambiguous. In the article, a retelling of the speech, so take it as my individual opinion, which may not coincide with the facts.

    They are not needed to defeat Ukraine, but they can serve as a threat to cut off arms supplies to Ukraine. If Russia considers distributing nuclear weapons to its allies or upgrading its arsenal, Korea, etc., the West will stop supplying Ukraine with weapons.

      There is no need to transfer nuclear weapons to others, because today a friend, the day after tomorrow an enemy - "no one knows their fate" ... Here is the modernization of nuclear weapons and, carriers and all weapons, is a constant work. States are included in the collective forms of defense (attack), here the Russian Federation urgently needs to draw up military agreements with Iran, China. North Korea, Latin America, Argentina, Brazil, not to mention Venezuela, etc. The world is heading for war (USA-PRC), so get ready, convene allies ...

    They need to be surrounded by a fence and covered with bleach.

    Ukrainian media talk about the losses of the Russian Federation in more than 40 thousand people. Even if you halve the indicated amount, then 20 thousand.
    In one of the issues, Yuri Ivanovich Podolyaka also estimated the losses of the Russian Federation during the NWO and named a figure of about 20 thousand people.
    20 thousand in half a year, this is more than in Afghanistan in 10 years, and the end-edge of the NWO is not visible.
    In one of the issues, Yuri Ivanovich Podolyaka also estimated the losses of the Russian Federation during the NWO and named a figure of about 20 thousand people.
    It is not clear what the purpose of the SVO is:
    if NWO is part of some cunning plan to not expand, not advance NATO and return to the 1979 borders, then this crazy plan failed miserably
    if the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, then this is possible only through the deprivation of statehood, and it is possible to deprive statehood only through its complete occupation or division with unfriendly NATO members Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania
    if the liberation of the DPR-LPR, then why disperse forces and means along the entire border with Ukraine
    if the seizure of territory and the Russification of the left-bank and coastal Ukraine, then why insist on negotiations with representatives of Ukraine
    The statement on the non-use of nuclear weapons reassured Ukrainian nationalists and NATO, which means that the degree of confrontation will increase and border violations, provocations, etc. will continue.

      why insist on negotiations with representatives of Ukraine

      But does anyone insist on negotiations with representatives of Ukraine? And who can be this representative?

      Yuri Ivanovich was just guessing, he doesn’t even have information close to accurate.

    Read carefully again. In Ukraine we will not apply. BUT where will, did not say. Ukraine is our territory, but you can apply it somewhere far away.
