Russia spoke about the consequences of a global nuclear war between Moscow and Washington


In the event of a nuclear war between the United States and Russia, large regions of the world would face starvation due to lack of food. Crop failures will occur due to a nuclear winter triggered by a large amount of soot and dust clouds thrown into the atmosphere. The journal Nature wrote about it.


However, according to military analyst Mikhail Khodarenko, such materials are more like “hype and clickbait”, since they are based on outdated data.

The concept of nuclear winter was widespread in the West during the Cold War, when about 21 nuclear warheads were in service with the US and the USSR in constant readiness on strategic launch vehicles. In total, the arsenal of such weapons of the two countries amounted to about 70 thousand warheads.

Washington and Moscow currently have approximately 3 smaller nuclear warheads at their disposal.

Thus, if the US and Russia today use 100% of their nuclear potentials with massive strikes in a nuclear war of mutual destruction, there will be no nuclear winter.

- the expert noted in his telegram channel.

However, such a scenario does not exclude catastrophic consequences, including economic catastrophe and famine in the USA, Russia and European countries. Radiation contamination of vast territories cannot be avoided either. At the same time, such devastating results will not stop world powers from using nuclear weapons.

If you think that nuclear war is supposedly impossible because of the catastrophic consequences for all of humanity, then I will disappoint you - this is all a myth. Now it is possible, and how

- Khodarenok is sure.

Along with this, the analyst questions the information about 165 million tons of soot, which may be in the atmosphere after large-scale fires as a result of a thermonuclear explosion. Mikhail Khodarenok believes that in modern cities with a predominance of buildings made of stone and reinforced concrete, fire will not spread to vast areas, and a large number of fires will not occur. Therefore, so much soot will not be thrown into the air, and nuclear winter will not come.

    Yes, there will be no consequences. Because there will be nothing. I hope everyone knows the motto of the Strategic Missile Forces "After us, silence"?

    Nuclear war is quite possible. No one will say the consequences. States suggest a strike with ultra-small nuclear weapons. And they hope to confine themselves to local exchanges of blows.

    After an alleged nuclear war between the territories of modern India and Africa (traces characteristic of nuclear bomb explosions were found), glaciation set in 20 thousand years ago, and then, 9 thousand years after that, the Flood passed, Atlantis perished.

    According to Plato, Solon was told about Atlantis by the Egyptian priest of the temple of Neith (Egyptian goddess of the sky, war and hunting; patroness of queens) in the city of Sais (Egypt). The priest told the Athenian an ancient legend. About 9000 years ago, behind the Pillars of Hercules (as the Strait of Gibraltar was called in those days) in the ocean there was a large island that occupied an area commensurate with the size of Asia

    Isn't that disturbing?

      Nuclear technologies imply a developed space industry. Nuclear explosions allegedly were 20 thousand. years ago, and then where are the dead satellites in orbits, which from that time should still have been hanging in near-Earth space? So this is all nonsense, there were no developed nuclear technologies in the past, as well as space ones. And traces, "characteristic" can also be from meteorite impacts.

      so you can get to the epics of ancient Sumer and Akkad, for example, the Enuma Elish epic about the creation of the World, but academic history does not recognize this, it all refers to alternative history

      Not an ounce of concern. Yes, and Plato himself said that he invented Atlantis as an example of a possible ideal state (of course, ideal according to the ideas of that time) in his "Dialogues". And the vigorous bonbas of antiquity are nothing more than stretching a toroidal owl on a four-dimensional cube, in a decent society called a tesseract.

    The fact that nuclear winter will not come is small consolation, most of humanity will die out in this case, the second coming of the Savior will be the most likely, only he will be able to reason with the idiots who decide that they are gods.

      The human anthill has almost self-destructed more than once in history. (Petroleum, etc.) Once again, it will knock out billions of parasites from the heels (this is how the ecosystem of the Earth perceives a person) The Earth will remain the same. With the disappearance of dinosaurs, the disappearance of homeo sapiens is also possible, with a replacement for homo secundus .. Who knows, who knows .......

    Nuclear weapons are primarily tools.
    In my opinion, Russia's strategic nuclear weapons, as its tool, have the following qualities:
    - the possibility of guaranteed infliction of unacceptable damage to the territory of the enemy (USA, Great Britain, Japan), inaccessible to other types of influence, both economic and military
    - the ability to compensate (with the maximum increase in rates and risks) the weakness of our country in all other areas of confrontation with the enemy
    - the ability to achieve with the help of a real threat against the United States the lifting of all sanctions, the fulfillment of the conditions of our Ultimatum and the return of the status quo
    - the ability, with an appropriate and real threat, to destroy the coalition and plans of the enemy against Russia, depriving the USA, Great Britain and Japan of their interest in further actions
    - prevention of the sliding of the world into the 3rd world war, which so far rests on these plans and interests
    - the absence of alternatives to these weapons in the face of the guaranteed death of the country in the upcoming war with Europe and Japan
    - successfully tested this weapon in 1962 as a real threat to our current enemy - the Americans
    To use this tool, a firm willingness to take the risk (due to random factors) of being involved in a nuclear war with the enemy ("we don't need a world without Russia") is required.

      I emphasize that in all the above paragraphs, we are not talking about tactical, but precisely and only, about strategic nuclear weapons, and about their threat of being used not against the "executors", but against the "customers" of the war (the United States and Great Britain). Standing apart in this company, in my opinion, is Japan, which is not a "customer", but is probably capable of deviating in its own interests from the line common with the "customers"

        Here it is necessary to specifically describe who will receive what as a "gift" from the Russian Federation in the event of a nuclear war. Now England should not be sorry for a small island to become uninhabited. The United States also, - only villages will remain. Those without nuclear weapons should promise surprises in the capitals and other large cities ... Here, surprises should be powerful, do not skimp on megatons, that way, ten or even twenty megatons for each gift. Then it will be clear to everyone what to expect, and so one fortune-telling on the coffee grounds, whether there will be gifts, or there will be no gifts ... And so they confidently know what to expect, gifts always lead to reflections, whether I will receive much ...

    So yes, but America's nuclear potential is controlled not by the American people and not even by the government, but by a bunch of "rich men" - the masters of the world order. Of course, they are afraid of the consequences of a nuclear winter, etc., but they are very well prepared and can autonomously hold out for a long time. That's why they take it impudently going to the bank without fear and openly with any state. And the death of Europe, especially Ukraine, will be drummed into them, the main thing for them is to manage the resources and scientific potential of the earth. And for the rest...

      I do not think that a delayed, even for years, death in a bunker can appeal to anyone. What about the future of children and grandchildren? Think for yourself. These people have so much to do with the comforts of the world. Man is a part of humanity, its habitat and its future. Without all this, the survivor will envy the dead

        And how many people control the American "button"? So they prepared for centuries as you write with comfort. Everything is very serious. Ordinary John or Steve doesn't give a damn about us and Ukraine, they just need an 8-hour working day, a salary on the map and beer on the table in the evening.
