 Undermining global security: Russia approves the deployment of low equivalent submarine launched nuclear bombs by the United States


Tass News Agency reported on February 5 that Sergei ryabukov, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, told reporters on February 5 that the Russian government is extremely concerned about the deployment of a new type of low yield nuclear warhead w76-2 by the United States on submarines.

We are very concerned about this not because we see a threat to Russian security, but from the perspective of the doctrines and ideas pursued by the Americans in the nuclear field, he said Its very disturbing.

The diplomat said: this means that the previous U.S. oral comments on the use of nuclear weapons in hypothetical conflicts have been implemented. This reflects the fact that the United States has actually lowered the nuclear threshold and allowed itself to wage a limited nuclear war and win.

According to the Russian news agency on February 5, the U.S. Navy deployed new weapons on submarines - ballistic missiles with 5000 tons of low equivalent nuclear warheads. The Pentagon claims the warhead was developed to contain Russia.

Reported that the U.S. Ohio class strategic nuclear submarine Tennessee became the first low equivalent ballistic nuclear weapon carrier. The 5000 ton equivalent warhead was installed in 2019. This is a new warhead developed on the basis of the 100000 ton equivalent warhead produced in the 1980s.

It should be noted that it took less than a year from April 2018, when President trump ordered the design to the train installation.

According to the report, the U.S. military believes that Russia will use tactical nuclear weapons when conventional weapons fail. According to American strategists, the functions of Ohio class nuclear submarine will be more diverse now. In the case of tactical nuclear weapons, they will not only fight back, but also participate in local conflicts.

The Pentagon claims that equipping with w76-2 low yield nuclear warheads can defuse Russias potential with a large number of small nukes. According to the report, however, in the view of some military experts, containment of Russia is just a cover. The American low yield nuclear bomb is for other purposes.

According to Konstantin sivkov, vice president of the Russian Academy of rockets and artillery, the United States is first and foremost aimed at fighting non nuclear weapon states. The United States has yet to find another way to solve its own problems, he said. For Russia, the threat lies solely in the possibility that the border nuclear conflict could turn into a full-scale war. We just need to respond diplomatically, because the threat of a low yield nuclear bomb is primarily from other countries.

Observers agree that the development of a low yield nuclear bomb is worrisome because it would significantly reduce the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons. Alexander pelegiev, a Russian military political scientist, pointed out that the U.S. move would intensify the possibility of a surprise attack.

The threat is overwhelming, he said. The intention of the Americans is to make it clear that they are afraid of those countries that do not have enough technical means to detect and eliminate nuclear submarines and reliable anti missile air defense systems.

Moscow can also deploy tactical nukes on submarines, perengiev said. We have suitable submarines. And our missiles will be more difficult to intercept for the anti missile system of the United States or NATO. Konstantin Sokolov, vice president of the Russian Academy of geopolitics, believes that the use of small nuclear bombs is absurd and dangerous. Small nuclear war will definitely turn into comprehensive nuclear war, and the United States has completely destroyed the world security architecture, he stressed. The entire system of international agreements needed for the coexistence of the worlds people will be unsustainable. According to experts estimates, nearly a thousand low equivalent nuclear bombs, including cruise missiles for B-52 bombers and b-61 nuclear air bombs, had been stored in the U.S. arsenals before that, the report said. But the aircraft is not as concealed as submarines, and is more vulnerable to anti missile air defense system attacks. Source: reference editor: Yao Wenguang, nn1682
