Moscow: The risk of a nuclear attack in the Ukraine war, which has been going on for the last 70 days, is increasing. Russia said on Wednesday that its forces had studied nuclear missile firing. The simulator-based nuclear missile exercise was conducted in Kaliningrad, Russia. The 70-day Russia-Ukraine war has so far claimed thousands of lives and left more than 125 million people fleeing Ukraine. This number is said to be the highest since World War II. According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, its military has studied more than one attack on targets, such as missile systems, airspace and safe infrastructure capable of launching missiles.
Attacks on multiple enemy locations in an artificial maneuver
The two countries have been at war since the February 24 attack on Ukraine. Russia, meanwhile, has repeatedly warned of an indirect nuclear attack. On Wednesday, members of the European Union studied the artificial electronic launch of the Iskander ballistic missile system capable of a nuclear attack during a war exercise at a Russian military base on the Baltic Sea, located between Poland and Lithuania. In this artificial study, several enemy locations were attacked. It was also tested to avoid possible retaliatory strikes.
Also evaluation of radiation and chemical effects
The effects of radiation and chemical spread caused by an attack were also evaluated in a nuclear study. More than 100 Russian soldiers and officers took part in the exercise. Russian President Vladimir Putin has placed his country’s nuclear force on high alert since the February 24 attack on Ukraine. Russia, meanwhile, has repeatedly expressed fears of a third world war in view of the impending crisis.
If Western countries intervene, the danger will increase
On the other hand, the Russian Defense Headquarters Kremlin has said that if the West intervenes in Ukraine, quick retaliation will take place. Experts say Russia’s state-run channels have recently raised awareness about the country’s use of nuclear weapons. “For two weeks now, we have been hearing from our television screens that the nuclear warehouse should be opened,” Dmitry Muratov, editor of a Russian newspaper and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, said on Tuesday.
