 Russias disclosure of conditions for nuclear counterattack draws an insurmountable red line for NATO


A succession of tough nuclear positions

According to the report, the General Staff Department of the Russian armed forces published an article on the state policy of the Russian Federation on nuclear deterrence in the Red Star newspaper on July 7, which clearly stated that if Russias strategic opponent launches a ballistic missile attack against Russia, because the Russian side cannot immediately determine whether the missile carries a nuclear warhead, it will determine that it has been hit by a nuclear weapon and has the right to launch it Nuclear counterattack. The missile launch information will be automatically transferred to the Russian military and political leadership, who will determine the scale of the Russian nuclear counterattack based on the immediate situation.

Americas game doesnt work

Viktor murahovsky, editor in chief of Russias national Arsenal magazine, said on the 8th that Russia hopes to send a clear signal to the leadership of countries hostile to Russia and draw a red line. If they cross the line, it will inevitably lead to nuclear retaliation. Russia has clearly issued a warning to potential enemies, and we are ready to defend national sovereignty, including nuclear weapons, in any way, said Russian military expert luzim klubov. The United States has always liked to use conventional weapons to carry out large-scale air strikes and missile attacks on other countries, but this trick does not work for Russia. We will take nuclear retaliation against such acts. We will strike not only at the place where the missile was launched, but also at the center where the command was issued.

The nuclear policies of big countries are different

Since the end of the cold war, Russia has been affected by the decline of national strength and the eastward expansion of NATO. The basic principles of Russian military doctrine in 1993 formally abandoned the commitment of not to use nuclear weapons first. After the Chechen War and the Kosovo war, due to the weakness of the conventional military force than NATO, Russia began to use nuclear power as a major means to deter local wars and regional conflicts that may endanger Russias national security. In 2010, Russias new military doctrine clearly stated that it would choose to use nuclear weapons first when the enemy threatened the sovereignty and state existence of Russia and its allies with conventional weapons. The latest tough stance of the Russian army shows that Russia pursues the principle of relatively stable asymmetric strategic balance, focusing on ensuring that strategic nuclear forces can cause intolerable losses to the enemy under any circumstances, strengthen actual combat and reduce the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons.
