Military expert Alexei Leonkov spoke about the goals of the US submarine in Europe.
In a conversation with MK, he noted that the nuclear submarine USS Rhode Island can carry nuclear warheads. And she came to Europe. The Americans also sent a Boeing E-6 Mercury Doomsday aircraft to Europe.
“NATO cannot conduct large-scale exercises – it is expensive. Therefore, they choose a place for exercises – better in Europe, take some forces that are easy to relocate, and use them, ”the expert said.
In his opinion, this could be a rehearsal for the use of nuclear weapons on European territory. He does not exclude that there may be a provocation with tactical nuclear weapons in order to accuse Russia of their use.
And the fact that US presidential adviser James Sullivan recently visited Kyiv raises even greater concerns about Washington’s possible plans against the Russian Federation, which can be implemented jointly with Ukraine.
