UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Recent US military exercises, during which a version of Russia’s nuclear “response” was worked out, pursued Washington’s two geopolitical goals. This was stated by First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense Alexander Sherin on the air of the NSN.
According to him, the main goal of Washington during the last maneuvers, according to the scenario of which Russia allegedly attacked a NATO member country from Europe with low-power nuclear weapons, is to educate the population in the idea that it is possible to resolve the conflict this way.
Secondly, such exercises also intimidate local residents with the idea that the Russian Federation is supposedly a threat, which the Americans skillfully use to justify the presence of their military as security guarantors.
At the same time, Sherin recalled that Russia is not going to use nuclear weapons only in case of a threat to its territorial integrity. He points out that the chances of realism of such a scenario of exercises are, in principle, not very high, since the radius of nuclear contamination will reach the regions of Russia.
– I do not know any European country that we could not put in place without the use of nuclear weapons. They are quite capable, ”the agency quoted him as saying.
Earlier, Life said that in 2020, the largest NATO exercises will be held in the Baltic states, during which the methods of conducting military operations in Russia and preparation for the invasion of third countries will be worked out .
