Russia is ready to use its nuclear missile arsenal only to prevent the destruction of the Russian Federation by foreign aggressors. At the same time, the likelihood of a local conflict with the use of weapons of mass destruction between Russia and the United States is low, expert Alexander Mikhailov said.
The head of the Bureau of Military-Political Analysis, Alexander Mikhailov, in an interview with the 360 TV channel, recalled that the nuclear weapons of the RF Armed Forces effectively deter unfriendly states from attacking our country.
“Any use of nuclear weapons will cause a strong reaction on the planet, even if it is a local event. The Russian Federation, on the other hand, cannot get away with some local strikes. It will use the entire arsenal in the event of a direct threat,” the speaker noted.
Mikhailov stressed that the strategic prerequisites for the use of nuclear weapons by Russia and the United States are not visible, both countries will try not to bring their differences to an open military conflict.
