Vladimir Putin raises nuclear alert, US remains calm


The dire prospects of an all-out nuclear war over the Ukraine crisis ticked off on Sunday after Russian President Vladimir Putin raised the alert level of his nuclear arsenal to “special combat readiness”. The development came after the US and its G7 partners intensified sanctions, virtually cutting Russia off the international financial system.
The heightened alert, which is still several steps short of a full-blown “DEFCON” situation, came even after Ukraine agreed to unconditional talks with Moscow, three days later against Russian forces in Kiev and Kharkhiv. sought to be demolished, its two major cities.
Washington reacted calmly to Russia’s no public announcement of its nuclear alert status. The White House said the Russian alert is part of a pattern of manufacturing threats to Moscow to justify aggression.
“We’ve seen him do it over and over again. Russia has never been threatened by NATO, is Russia under threat from Ukraine. It’s all a pattern of President Putin and we’re going to stand by the White House. “We have the ability to defend ourselves, but we also need to tell President Putin what we’re seeing here,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki told ABC News.
He described Putin’s explanation for raising the nuclear alert status as an “aggressive statement” from NATO leaders, along with severe financial sanctions on Russia, including the president himself.
Although there was no immediate alarm in the US, experts warned of a slippery slope for both sides. Some people talked of a doomsday.
“With the Russian nuclear forces on alert, the war has reached a new, dangerous stage. So far we have focused on Putin’s prevailing risks; now we must also face the risks of Putin failing. Cyber. Widespread use of, attack on NATO, even nuclear use cannot be ruled out,” said Richard Haas, chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Referring to possible talks between Russia and Ukraine, Haas said it was not clear whether the nuclear threat was an attempt to impose harsh conditions rather than negotiate on fair terms.
Presenting a nuclear gamble in the current dire situation where some Ukrainian leaders are already regretting leaving an arsenal is already beginning to have global repercussions.
In Tokyo, former prime minister Shinzo Abe said Japan should discuss a possible sharing of nuclear weapons with NATO members in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
