War, Putin changes tactics: “A pre-emptive nuclear strike is possible”

The escalation between great powers continues unabated. Russian President Vladimir Putin no longer rules out the possibility that Russia will include the possibility of a preemptive nuclear strike in its “military strategy” with the aim of “disarming” its enemies. That’s what Bloomberg reports, citing the response of the number one in Moscow to journalists at the end of a meeting in Kyrgyzstan. The Russian president admitted that the hypothesis is being considered: “We are thinking about it”. In particular, “if we are talking about an attack to disarm enemies, we could use the approach of our American partners”, he added, referring to the US strategy that foresees the use of high-precision missiles in a preventive perspective. Just two days ago, the head of the Kremlin himself said that the risk of a nuclear war is growing, defining Russia’s atomic arsenal as a “deterrent factor”. But Russian strategy limits the use of such weapons to a last resort in the case of an existential threat.
