Military Review

In London, discussed the likelihood of a nuclear strike by the Russian Federation

66
The Committee on the Defense of the British Parliament discussed the possibility of Russia's use of nuclear weapons in a hypothetical local conflict with NATO, reports Look with reference to the BBC.




At the meeting, the head of the committee, Julian Lewis, asked how the reasoning about nuclear weapons in Russia should be understood: “as an instrument of escalation or de-escalation?”.

Is this part of propaganda, or are they seriously considering the possibility of using relatively small nuclear charges after they captured a certain territory?
He clarified his question.

Lewis "did not explain where such an understanding of Russian policy regarding nuclear weapons came from," the publication noted.

Justin Bronk, a military analyst at the British Royal Institute for Defense Studies, suggested that “Moscow will need to avoid the growth of the conflict, for this the authorities may begin to threaten with nuclear weapons or even use a nuclear charge of less than a kiloton.”

At the same time, the expert is confident that the Russian Federation "will never initiate a conflict with NATO, which, according to its calculations, may last more than a couple of weeks."

He believes that in such a conflict Moscow "will inevitably be defeated because of the superiority of the alliance in industrial and human resources." Therefore, in the event of a conflict, Russia will try to “quickly achieve its goals and then quickly“ dig in ”,” he added.

According to Bronk, this will "create a threat of nuclear conflict," but NATO countries are likely to find it disproportionate to the use of "strategic, sweeping cities of nuclear weapons."

Or even shoot one rocket at a separate military target. The fact is that the nuclear arsenal of the West, including Britain, is overwhelmingly intercontinental ballistic missiles,
The expert explained.

He also recalled that "high-precision tactical nuclear weapons" are being developed in the United States. Moscow is very worried that “B-21 bombers and F-35 fighters capable of carrying such charges will appear at its borders,” Bronk added.

        Yah. Ours will begin to make excuses and declare the absence of plans and carry other nonsense, just to calm the British who are not worried. For them, zombies are a greater reality than the attack of RUSSIA.
        Now, if the General Staff of Russia published for the British a plan of bombing London and its environs with calculations on losses, in the British and other thieves who live there, then they would begin to think about their future.

          And how they fear for themselves loved ones. They are flattering something, If we start to threaten with any charge less than a kiloton, and certainly not less than 10 megatons. That it looked very scary to an uncontrollable diarrhea.

            The Russian charge is "less than a kiloton", the British can only blow up their brains. However, it seems to be useless, since in the light of recent events, it is clear that they have already been torn to shreds for a long time. Only the English skull box remains, which generates such thoughts. laughing

        ... they set the stage for the legality of the use of low-power nuclear weapons in regional wars. But it cannot be done out of the blue and here the question arises of RESPONSE developments and the use of such charges, supposedly on the concept of Moscow using such charges.

          The Russian Ministry of Defense, has long spoken out on this issue, arguing that "it is impossible to be a little bit pregnant." That is, for Russia there is nuclear weapon as such, independent of its capacity. And the answer "cunningly made countries" will receive, as expected, in megatons. From the point of view of the “Western partners,” if “lumps are blown on the floor”, this will not be considered rape.

            We are talking about the use of low-power nuclear charges in REGIONAL, and not in global conflicts. That is, for example, the Iraq war for example ... mattresses, so as not to bother with missiles in large quantities with axes, in this case, they would hammer two charges of low power and everything is sewn-covered and no world condemnation.
            This is what the Anglo-Saxons are pursuing — TO STAND UP THE APPLICATION OF NUCLEAR CHARGES OF SMALL POWER.

              Thank you for the answer, but I can read and understand what regional wars are. In light of this concept, it turns out that in this case, for example, Israel can bomb one of its neighbors with something of "low power" and order? And it will become with them. Pakistan can easily crave nuclear weapons in India, North Korea in the south (states can easily provoke this). This we are not talking about the carriers of democracy, whose hands itch to bomb someone else. And how will it all end? However, they have already made a mockery of the OPCW; they can do the same with organizations and treaties to ban nuclear weapons.

    in the event of a conflict, Russia will try to "quickly achieve its goals and then quickly" dig in "
    If Russia quickly reaches its goal, then why should it “dig in”? Western "analysts" including the British say what they want to hear from them. And the conclusions are superficial. Since Russia has nuclear weapons and is economically weak, it must use them (nuclear weapons) in conflict. Or maybe it’s easier not to foment such a conflict on the West and refresh historical facts in your own mind?

      hi
      Western Akela does not understand the lessons of history. For him, there are "here and now" and "USA above all." That's why they pushed so many military bases away from their island and placed nuclear weapons on these distant shores, and prepared the aborigines of these distant shores for a spell, and those with joyful screeching were led to their promises and green candy wrappers. But some people begin to come to their senses from euphoria and think out how this catasia could end for them.

    Guys! this is not World War II, the edge lasted almost 4 years. After the nuclear conflict with Russia, neither your small Britain, nor your industry, nor your human resources will remain. You all, along with your NATO, will simply disappear from the world map. And your missiles somehow intricately fly and still do not explode: your two “smart” tomahawks are already being studied by our military.

And the more supreme lords, Rothschilds and other Zionists die, the longer the world will be. The truth will still have to burn their nests where they lay their eggs.
