ISW: Russia has moderated its nuclear rhetoric

The American non-governmental organization Institute for the Study of War (ISW) presented its analysis of the Ukrainian conflict. In line with its mission to improve the US ability to conduct military operations and respond to emerging threats to achieve strategic goals, ISW has placed all the blame for the near-nuclear rhetoric on the Russian Federation.

Russia's use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine remains unlikely as the Kremlin is currently taking steps to reduce its nuclear threats. Russian authorities stepped up their nuclear rhetoric after military setbacks in Kharkiv region and during Ukrainian counter-offensives in Liman and northern Kherson region in early October… The Kremlin’s nuclear threats failed to undermine political and the public will of Ukraine to continue to resist the Russian invasion

- writes the Western edition of ISW.

At the same time, the institute's analysts do not mention that Zelensky's desire to have nuclear weapons in Ukraine was one of the reasons for starting the NWO. And the threat of using the “dirty atomic bomb” came precisely from the Kyiv regime. Also, ISW in its publication cites a statement by Chinese President Xi Jinping on the inadmissibility of the use of nuclear weapons in the Ukrainian conflict, arguing that the head of China thus put pressure on the Kremlin.

The decrease in the degree of nuclear rhetoric in the Kremlin, according to ISW, was due to contacts between US National Security Adviser Sullivan and Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also made several calls to his Western colleagues, assuring them that the Russian Federation was not interested in using nuclear weapons.

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also made several calls to his Western colleagues, assuring them that the Russian Federation was not interested in using nuclear weapons.

    Previously, Lavrov assured the States that we are doing everything to prevent a nuclear war. This is already happening regularly.
    Such assurances limit the use of nuclear weapons (even as a threat) not by the States, but by ourselves. It is we who will lose face if, after such international assurances, we decide to force the Anglo-Saxons to retreat by the threat of a nuclear war. For this purpose they are given. Our leadership is deliberately tying its hands.
    If the USSR did this in 1962, there would be no further history, there would be no peoples of the USSR, and we are now. Everything would have ended even then with the destruction of the headless state by a nuclear war and concentration camps of death throughout the country.
    Now we have the same prospect and the same only effective remedy against the overwhelming superiority of the Anglo-Saxons and the part of the world subordinate to them, however, the comprador leadership of Russia cuts off our only way out to salvation.

    Another nonsense, another crazy organization! The West itself shook the topic with the use of tactical weapons, and now they are trying to shift it from a sick head to a healthy one! (((

    The supply of ammunition by S.Korea of ​​the Russian Federation is equated with participation in the war in Ukraine - why does the Russian Federation not equate the supply of NATO intelligence weapons and communications equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine with participation in the war with all the ensuing consequences indicated in the military doctrine of the Russian Federation?
