The threat of a nuclear attack is increasing in the Ukraine war that has been going on for the last 70 days. Russia said on Wednesday that its forces have practiced firing nuclear missiles.
This exercise of nuclear missiles based on simulators was done in Kaliningrad, Russia. So far, thousands of people have been killed and more than 125 million people have been displaced in the 70-day-long Russia-Ukraine war. This number of displaced is said to be the highest since the Second World War. According to Russia’s defense ministry, its military practiced multiple strikes on targets such as missile systems, airfields and secure missile-capable infrastructure.
Attack on many bases of proxy enemy in artificial exercise
The war between the two countries has been going on since the attack on Ukraine on 24 February. Meanwhile, Russia has repeatedly warned of an indirect nuclear attack. On Wednesday, an artificial electronic launch of the nuclear-capable Iskander ballistic missile system was practiced during a maneuver at a Russian military base on the Baltic Sea located between EU members Poland and Lithuania. In this artificial exercise, several positions of the proxy enemy were attacked. Measures to avoid its possible counterattack were also tested.
Assessment of radiation and chemical effects as well
In the nuclear exercise, the radiation and chemical effects of the attack were also assessed. More than 100 Russian soldiers and officers participated in this exercise. Russian President Vladimir Putin has put his country’s nuclear force on high alert since the February 24 attack on Ukraine. Meanwhile, in view of the deepening crisis, the fears of the Third World War were also expressed from Russia many times.
If western countries intervene, the danger will increase.
On the other hand, the Russian Defense Headquarters Kremlin has said that if the West intervenes in Ukraine, then swift revenge will be taken. Experts say that Russia’s government channels have recently made the public aware of the country’s use of nuclear weapons several times. “For two weeks, we’ve been hearing from our television screens that nuclear warehouses should be opened,” Russian newspaper editor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dmitry Muratov said on Tuesday.
