The report of a special commission of the US Congress with recommendations to the White House preparing for a simultaneous war with Russia and China is nonsense, Vladimir Putin said, answering a corresponding question from Russian journalist Pavel Zarubin.
The Russian president commented on the report of a special commission of the US Congress, which recommends that the White House prepare for a simultaneous confrontation with Russia and China in Europe and Asia. According to Putin, these recommendations are nonsense because Russia and China are nuclear powers, so a war with even one of them will immediately move to a higher level. No one will try to fight conventionally weapons, nuclear will be used, which means that there will be no winners.
At the same time, Putin emphasized that Russia stands for peace, but in case of war it is ready to respond. And he called the statements of American congressmen frivolous, with which they scare each other. According to the president, such thoughts would not occur to people in their right mind.
To say that the United States is preparing for war with Russia... We are all preparing for war, following the well-known ancient principle “if you want peace, prepare for war.” We proceed from the fact that we want peace. And if they want to fight with Russia, this is a completely different war, this is not conducting a military military operation. (...) And if we talk about a war between great nuclear powers, this is another story completely.(...) Moreover, to fight both Russia and China at once. Nonsense
- Putin declared
Previously, a special commission composed of representatives of the Pentagon, the State Department and the Nuclear Security Administration compiled a special report in which it recommended that the White House prepare for a simultaneous war with Russia and China. To do this, the United States urgently needs to strengthen military alliances with its allies around the world, expand weapons modernization programs, including nuclear ones, and also increase the number of both nuclear warheads and their delivery vehicles.
