Western analysts published an article in which they talked about the circumstances under which the “military special operation” of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine will end in disaster for the whole world.
The National Interest writes that the Russian Federation may use tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine, Svobodnaya Pressa reports.
Since Ukraine continues to fight with the Russian troops that entered its territory on February 24, and the West supplies weapons to Kyiv for this, the “military special operation” is being dragged out. And this may lead to the fact that the Russian Federation will use nuclear weapons against Ukraine, although it is also a non-nuclear state and such a strike is unacceptable under international agreements.
The publication notes that “the probability of the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine may be low, but today it is not equal to zero.” But the United States believes that the Russian Federation may go for the use of nuclear weapons, and the signal that the threat has grown will be the transfer of nuclear warheads closer to the font line.
“Accidental use — meaning the unintentional use of a nuclear weapon due to mishandling or poor design — is becoming more likely. History is littered with examples of nuclear blunders, cases where accidents almost led to the use of atomic energy, and these events remain quite plausible in Russia, ”the newspaper writes.
It is also possible the use of nuclear weapons without the consent of the higher leadership. But in this case, the Pentagon will immediately intervene, Western experts are sure.
