Russia is likely to respond to NATO exercises with the deployment of its nuclear triad


From October 17 to 30, NATO plans to hold a nuclear exercise called "Steadfast Noon" ("Unshakable Noon"), in which 14 countries of the Alliance and up to 60 military aircraft will take part. In this regard, there is every reason to believe that in the near future the Aerospace Forces, together with the Strategic Missile Forces and the Northern Fleet of the RF Armed Forces, will begin to carry out comprehensive countermeasures to deploy the ground, sea and air components of the nuclear triad. The maneuvers are likely to take place in the northwestern regions of the country. In favor of such a hypothesis, the transfer of strategic aviation of the Aerospace Forces to the Murmansk region can speak.


The active rhetoric around the possible use of weapons of mass destruction is forcing Russia to take military retaliatory measures. The NATO leadership's statements that the exercises will be carried out without real nuclear weapons and are aimed only at maintaining the combat capability of the alliance's forces do not inspire absolute confidence. As well as the fact that the exercise area will be located at a distance of less than a thousand kilometers from the Russian borders.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky demanded that NATO launch preventive nuclear strikes against Russia. The planned exercises may be a practice of nuclear aggression against our country.

In such an environment, demonstrative presence on the Kola Peninsula, 11 Tu-160 and Tu-95MS strategic bombers, which we wrote about earlier, should cool the ardor of Western generals.

    In response to NATO exercises, strategic bombers moved from the relative depth of the territory to 200 km from the border with Finland.
    Of course, I'm an amateur, but wouldn't it be more logical to send them beyond the Urals in order to increase the chances of surviving the first blow.

    Maybe this parallel would be inappropriate, but in 1941 many planes from border airfields never took off. Burnt on the ground.

      You're right. Tu-160 and Tu-95 are not front-line bombers. The flight range and the possibility of refueling in the air allows them to be kept in a safe place in the country, protected by distance, air defense lines and the maximum available reaction time to a breakthrough of border air defense. Each of these aircraft carries from 6 to 12 strategic missiles with nuclear warheads, that is, in terms of the number of areas to be hit, approximately corresponds to a regiment of strategic ground forces. These are piece and expensive products - a heavy piece in chess that can decide the outcome of the war. Any country values ​​them.
      Common sense is universal for any field. Just like stupidity and irresponsibility. There is also betrayal, which we often disguise as them.

      If the discussed deployment of "strategists" on Olenye is not a Western fake, then most likely, the Russian military is already removing our "strategists" from Kola, correcting the reckless "demonstration of determination" of politicians. For, according to common sense, such a placement of "strategists" at a critical moment is a strong temptation for the Western military to easily destroy such "delicious" targets.

        I don't think it's a mistake or stupidity.
        For a professional military, this is an elementary and completely wild thing - how for an electrician to make a phase-to-ground connection.
        This does not look like a fake either, otherwise it would have been added to it in the form of mocking remarks. The resource from which the picture was taken is given.
        Given the many strange things that have been happening lately - most likely a betrayal, and this too, in view of the imminent opening of a theater of operations in the Northwest (NATO nuclear exercises "Steady Noon" next week is a convenient opportunity)

          This is also indicated by the "coincidence" of the exercises with the 60th anniversary of the Caribbean crisis. The one in which the USSR, by the threat of a nuclear war, forced the Americans to retreat from the plan of nuclear destruction of the USSR with a decapitating strike from Turkey and Italy.

          Alexey Davydov, yes, the opening of a theater of operations in the North-West in the foreseeable future of several months is very likely. For as soon as decisions in Ukraine begin to be made by competent military men and not politicians (and finally, everything seems to be going towards this), after which the ukroreich will fall, Western "partners" can open another theater of operations. For them, it is most convenient to use the geography of the Kaliningrad region, which is weak in terms of logistics, to begin with, trying to organize a land, sea, and possibly air blockade of it.

    As Vladimir Putin said, before the start of the NMD, the strategic forces were transferred to a special order of combat duty and that all orders were given - probably in case they were used.

    Strategic bombers, an expensive relic of the 20th century, missile weapons replace them for all tasks. So they removed them away from the SVO. Today, in large conflicts, bomber strategists also become disposable with the powerful development of air defense and other fighters. Further construction of the Tu-160 looks like an ill-conceived step; in terms of aviation, it is preferable to develop the Su-57, Okhotnik and other strike UAVs.

      If a country has the ability to build and form capable strategic aviation units, this gives it rich operational capabilities for maneuvering strategic forces in different directions of attack. Opportunities that the ground forces almost do not have and which are significantly limited in the maritime component. This is especially important for Russia, with its vast territory and the need to strike from it in a wide range of directions. Unlike the United States, which has two oceans for this. A distinctive feature of the air strategic forces is the broad possibility of retargeting strategic weapons in the process of completing a mission, and even canceling their use at the target itself.
      As for the "Su-57, Okhotnik and other strike UAVs" you mentioned, this is non-strategic aviation, which can indeed be deployed near the borders

    Putin will do nothing in return.
