RF's use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine and other countries is unlikely

Mar 2, 2024

It is unlikely that the Russian Federation will use nuclear weapons in Ukraine or any other country in the world.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine regarding a report by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

It is noted that on March 1, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced the successful combat training launch of the RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile, equipped with a separate warhead with individual guidance units.

The report also recalled that during his address to the Federal Assembly on February 29, dictator Vladimir Putin said that Russia had weapons capable of striking the West.

"The Kremlin often uses nuclear saber-rattling to instill fear in Western audiences and weaken Western support for Ukraine. Russia's use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine and beyond is highly unlikely," the ISW report says.
