Pentagon accused Russia of conflicting statements on nuclear weapons

Russia's claims that it intends to rely less on nuclear weapon, disagree with her real actions, says the commander of the US strategic command, General John Heithen.


Pentagon accused Russia of conflicting statements on nuclear weapons


Our people have such an expression “words are at variance with deeds” - when you say one thing and do another ... We listen attentively to what your (Russian) president says, what your leaders say, and we very closely follow what your country does . And when we add up these things, we see that on the one hand there are very contradictory statements, on the other - a commitment to complete modernization of (nuclear) capabilities and a commitment to creating non-strategic nuclear capabilities, implementing a new nuclear doctrine, which we consider very dangerous
- Said Heithen at a seminar on the new US nuclear doctrine.

The commander added that the United States regards such actions by Russia as a threat. Thus, the general answered the question of the representative of the Russian Embassy in the United States, who recalled that the Russian military doctrine stipulates that the country will rely less on nuclear weapons and will develop non-strategic weapons.

The Russian Foreign Ministry in connection with the publication of the new nuclear doctrine of the United States called frank juggling of Washington’s statement that Moscow is refusing further reductions in nuclear weapons, and also noted that the United States is trying to cast doubt on Russia's right to self-defense in critical situations for the existence of the state, RIA reports News

        Ordinary skirmish and recriminations, but about words and deeds - let them look in the mirror.

          I don’t remember anyone talking about the renunciation of nuclear weapons. I also don’t remember that we threatened anyone with them (and do not remind me of Khrushchev). So what was that whip talking about then? That's always the case with amers - they won’t say it, it seems that they are talking to themselves.

          commitment to complete modernization of (nuclear) capabilities and commitment to creating non-strategic nuclear capabilities, implementing a new nuclear doctrine, which we believe is very dangerous

          Why, and yes, we must destroy our Strategic Rocket Forces, raise our hands up, and hope for the mercy of the striped bandits.
          The US is trying to question Russia's right to self-defense in situations critical to the existence of the state,

          They are not trying, they are trying to do it. yes

            Once they already succeeded in the 90s, and the INF Treaty, in Russia at that time there were no such air and sea-based missiles, and they had, and when we got x-101s and calibers, they immediately screamed about the violation INF Treaty.

      I paid the same attention to this. Well, the look does not differ from his statements ...
      As a result, he confuses the MILITARY DOCTRINE, that is, a whole set of documents stating that Russia is ready to use its nuclear weapons in case of threat to its sovereignty,
      Russia reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear or non-nuclear weapons against it or its allies, the military doctrine approved by the president of the Russian Federation and posted on the Kremlin website says.
      The refinement of the Military Doctrine of the Russian Federation was carried out pursuant to the decision of the Security Council of Russia of July 5, 2013. The changes made to the document were approved at a meeting of the Security Council of Russia on December 19, 2014.


      with the STATEMENTS of our President, in which the thought sounds that now it is necessary to develop non-nuclear high-precision weapons, which in their power of influence on the enemy’s forces are equal to the effects of non-selective nuclear weapons.

      By the way, he was still talking about this while being prime minister:
      Russia will not give up nuclear weapons until it adopts high-precision weapons comparable in results to nuclear weapons, said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Russia will not give up nuclear weapons until it adopts high-precision weapons , comparable in results to nuclear, said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

    Russia's claims that it intends to rely less on nuclear weapons are at odds with its real actions,
    On whom do we rely and with what words does the general better not know laughing

      nothing is diverging anywhere, the bourgeois are modernizing - we too, the main task of the nuclear triad is to eliminate not the destruction of the enemy, this is the whole point of nuclear deterrence, in any case now

    Already, there is an opinion that with the development of high-precision weapons it will be more effective than nuclear weapons, targeted strikes by conventional high-power warheads will do more damage without damaging the material assets of the enemy’s territory, remember before neutron weapons had this principle.

    What is Russia controversial in its words about nuclear weapons? They told you clearly: get to us seriously, get a serious and convincing answer, including with the use of nuclear weapons, specifically in your territory. We will live peacefully, it will slowly rust and decay unnoticed, as it should be in nature, quietly and without harm to bosom partners. Going crazy is your choice.

    What sho you boil? It’s just that the American “nuclear” generals get burned up by the fact that Russia intends to develop non-nuclear tactical weapons, which in turn threatens to reduce the money that they barely knocked out of the Pentagon to modernize their strategic nuclear weapons.

    Not a specialist, I did not understand what the “commander of the strategic command” understands by “creating non-strategic nuclear capabilities” ... Versions of the statement by Heiten in different media are even more controversial ...
