The U.S. must do what it can to prevent Russian military from crossing the nuclear threshold, Stanford scholar says
Stanford scholar Scott Sagan discusses Russia’s nuclear threat in the country’s war of aggression in Ukraine and how Russian President Vladimir Putin is the most dangerous man in the world.
Nuclear weapons are not just a force used to deter another state from attacking – they can also be a shield behind which one can engage in aggression, says Stanford scholar Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren knit american flag sweater,Lululemon neon pink windbreaker 10,
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s reminder of Russia’s nuclear arsenal at the beginning of its recent invasion into Ukraine is a warning to the United States and other NATO members that if they get directly involved in the conflict, there could be a risk of nuclear escalation, said Sagan, the co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation (Casio Stainless Steel Watch,Under Armour Rival Fleece Loose Full Zip Hooded Jacket 3X,

Back in February, Putin publicly ordered his Minister of Defense to put Russian nuclear forces into “Calvin Klein Women's Fleece Lined Windbreaker Jacket Soft Lilac Size L,lululemon - pace pusher 1/2 zip pullover jacket zip pockets athletic workout,Homedics Heat boost Foot Spa, that if another nation interferes in the operation, “Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history.” Was Putin threatening a nuclear war?
Putin was engaging in nuclear saber-rattling, reminding NATO leaders that he has a large nuclear arsenal and that Russian military doctrine holds open the option of using nuclear weapons first if it is losing a war and its vital interests are threatened. However, the order to go into “special combat readiness” was not part of the Russian military lexicon and U.S. officials saw no actual nuclear alert activities underway.

But Putin’s threats did not deter Washington and many NATO governments from “interfering” in Moscow’s attempt to overthrow the Zelensky government in many other ways, short of direct combat with the Russians. We have given the Ukrainian government millions of dollars’ worth of weapons, including air defense systems and advanced anti-tank missiles, and have provided intelligence support. Without such rapid resupply of military equipment, the Ukrainians might well have lost the war already. Now they have turned back the Russian assault on Kyiv and Putin appears to have shifted his war aims from overthrowing the elected Ukrainian government to “liberating” the Donbas in Eastern Ukraine and possibly annexing it into Russia as he did with Crimea in 2014.
