French political scientist: The nuclear factor affects the course of the military operation in Ukraine

27

Weapon mass destruction is the main security problem of the modern world. And Russian President Vladimir Putin does not let other countries forget that Russia is a great nuclear power, using the very fact of possessing this type of weapon as a lever to facilitate the achievement of strategic goals.

So argues the French political scientist and historian Benjamin Hautecouverture in an article published in the newspaper Le Monde.

The Russian military operation in Ukraine, which has been going on for almost a week, is being conducted using only conventional weapons and has nothing to do with nuclear war. Despite this, the political scientist believes, the presence of nuclear warheads in Moscow is a determining factor in the ongoing events. In his opinion, the course of the military operation in Ukraine is largely influenced by the nuclear factor. From the point of view of Hautecouverture, this is both good and bad, depending on which side you look at.

Possessing nuclear weapons, Putin publicly orders the deterrence force to be more alert. Thus, he sends a signal to anyone who decides to intervene in the Ukrainian conflict that Russia's response can become destructive for him.


Earlier, a journalist from Peru, Ricardo Zedano, stated that the actions of the Russian president to denazify Ukraine are aimed at saving the world from the Third World War, which could erupt if Kyiv had nuclear weapons.

If the Ukrainian Nazi elite takes possession of nuclear weapons, be sure - we are waiting for the Third World War

- says the representative of the South American media.

    I remember some scientist spoke in the Kremlin and said that the most fateful inventions in the world were nuclear weapons and penicillin. Nuclear weapons stopped world wars, and penicillin dramatically (at times) reduced mortality.

      Weapons of mass destruction are the main security problem of the modern world
      America and the Angles is the main security problem of the modern world. And there’s nothing to distort, you shouldn’t treat a healthy head. The presence of nuclear weapons is a deterrent to war, but the presence of America is a turnaround!

        Remember how Dresden was wiped off the face of the earth by American aircraft?
        Remember how they hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki? What for ?
        Here I recommend reading a book about the plans of the Americans to destroy the USSR and always remember this beast and try to go one step ahead.
        “Daniel Ellsberg, the legendary whistleblower who published the Pentagon Papers in 1971, talks about the danger and folly of US nuclear policy in Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner. For the first time, he reveals the details of the American nuclear program of the 1960s, which involved a preemptive strike against the USSR.
        When you read this, you think, did people plan it? stop

      Glory to the labor feat of Soviet designers and the military, thanks to whom peace was ensured for decades!

      It was not the fact of the invention of nuclear weapons that became decisive, but the fact of the timely transfer of the secrets of the creation of these weapons by US scientists to scientists of the USSR. If only the United States owned these weapons, this would lead to tragedy, and above all to tragedy for the USSR. Those who passed on the secrets then, and then were convicted in the United States, should have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, but as long as the West remains an empire of hypocrisy and lies, the Nobel Peace Prize also remains just a fake prize.

        Firstly, scientists from Great Britain, France, Germany, who were taken out, left for the USA and who began to develop it at the beginning of the 20th century, have to create nuclear weapons, and secondly, I don’t remember that US scientists voluntarily handed something over to scientists of the USSR ...
        The United States only had the "wit" to be the first to use nuclear weapons against the civilian population ...

      Anecdote in the topic:

      Ilya Muromets quarreled with D'Artagnan, D'Artagnan challenged Ilya to a duel.
      They chose seconds: D'Artagnan - Porthos, and Ilya Muromets - Dobrynya Nikitich.
      We agreed that each weapon will choose.
      Everyone gathered the next morning in a clearing. D'Artagnan draws his sword
      rests its tip against the chest of Ilya Muromets and says to Porthos:
      "Put it on, my friend Porthos, here is a cross with chalk, I'll prick here."
      Then Ilya Muromets takes out a mace and says: "Dobrynushka, sprinkle
      D'Artagnan with chalk."

      The Frenchman thinks correctly “Putin is thereby signaling to anyone who decides to intervene in the Ukrainian conflict that Russia's response could be destructive for him.” This is poorly understood by the NATO countries supplying Ukraine with weapons, it is necessary to convey to them the perniciousness of their thinking. negative

    It's bad that hackers can't send out videos of tests and consequences of a nuclear explosion to citizens of former "partner" countries. And a lot of people don't understand what it is. The ardor of the partners and their brainless electorate would have diminished.

       "The mongoose, fighting the snake, prepares the main blow for a long time. He makes a series of false attacks and throws, waiting for the moment when the enemy starts to get tired and starts making mistake after mistake. But the worst thing in this situation is that Russia, having started this game, consisting of a mass of complex movements and combinations can no longer stop it. The battle between the mongoose and the snake will go to completion. In 90% of cases, the mongoose wins, but it happens that it dies. if it starts to rush."

      Democracy is the rules of conduct that well-armed gentlemen have agreed upon among themselves.
      The logical continuation of this maxim of Benjamin Franklin about the rights of the individual - if only one of the contracting parties is armed, and the second is an unarmed or insufficiently armed person, then her rights are the line of conduct that will allow her not to anger the gentleman.

      And these, nevertheless, pissed off ...

    I may not understand something, but having nuclear weapons in conditions of complete confrontation with the West, I do not consider it shameful to remind the latter that they are not immortal. Otherwise, what was the point of producing and possessing these nuclear weapons at all? And by the way, the West itself is in no hurry to abandon this type of weapon.

    This is how the French political scientist and historian Benjamin Hautecouverture argues in an article published in the newspaper The world.

    Sit in your newspaper and don't go until your nose is pinched. Russia has not yet used nuclear weapons, or depleted uranium, or phosphorus munitions, or other napalms ... That is why you were warned ... But in fact, for wanting to destroy my country (or your sanctions are aimed at ensuring that we live long and happy?) - the hand would not tremble ...

    and what does he mean by this ... that Russia should apologize for this according to AKHEDZHAKOVSKY?
    these Europeans, together with their masters, are working out nuclear strikes across Russia across the ocean ... but this is different .. you need to understand.

    So the president said from the very beginning that you would intervene, the consequences would be such as you have not encountered in your entire history.
