Putin Ally Says Russia May Use Nukes If West Keeps Sending Weapons to the Ukraine

Vyacheslav Volodin

The most psycho thing is that the US government/media keeps saying “Putin is a totally unhinged madman, he is on drugs and dying of cancer and is believed to have gone insane – but he is so reasonable he would never, under any circumstances, use nuclear weapons.”

Surely, both things can’t be 100% true?


A close ally of President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that deliveries of offensive weapons to Kyiv that threaten Russia’s territories will lead to a global catastrophe and make arguments against using weapons of mass destruction untenable.

Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the Duma – Russia’s lower house of parliament – warned that the United States and NATO’s support of Ukraine is leading the world to a “terrible war”.

“If Washington and NATO countries supply weapons that will be used to strike civilian cities and attempt to seize our territories, as they threaten, this will lead to retaliatory measures using more powerful weapons,” Volodin said on the Telegram messaging app.

Arguments that the nuclear powers have not previously used weapons of mass destruction in local conflicts are untenable. Because these states did not face a situation where there was a threat to the security of their citizens and the territorial integrity of the country.”

Western allies pledged billions of dollars in weapons for Ukraine last week, although they failed to persuade Germany to lift a veto on providing German-made Leopard battle tanks, which are held by an array of NATO nations but whose transfer to Ukraine requires Berlin’s approval.

It makes sense.

Russia doesn’t have the ability to fight off the entire force of the Western military, which is what we are looking at now.

That’s what nukes are for, no?
