Putin’s warning to the world

Putin’s warning to the world

Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, announced that the nuclear forces of the country are “always ready for action”. And he said: “Russia is making every effort to prevent a global conflict, but we will not tolerate any threats against ourselves.”
Speaking to thousands of soldiers in Moscow’s Red Square on Thursday, Putin accused the West of igniting conflicts around the world. And he emphasized that Russia is going through a challenging and decisive period.
Putin took a tougher approach last year by withdrawing from the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and a key arms reduction agreement with the United States. And at the beginning of this week, the Russian military ordered to conduct nuclear drills with the presence of the navy and forces stationed near Ukraine. The move raised concerns that Putin might use tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield.
Putin has already warned the West that Moscow is ready to use nuclear weapons if its sovereignty is threatened. According to the Federation of American Scientists, Putin controls about 5,580 nuclear soldiers.
At the end of last year, the President of Russia announced that the Russian Air Force had recently discovered four new supersonic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons. Putin said that 95 percent of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces have been modernized.
