I do not want a Nuclear war—Vladmir Putin begs

Russian President Vladimir Putin has reinstated he does not want a nuclear war despite Russia’s war against Ukraine and contrary to western beliefs.

The President said this in a letter to participants of a conference on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT), explaining there would be no winners in a nuclear war should it be engineered.

“We proceed from the fact that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed, and we stand for equal and indivisible security for all members of the world community,” he said.

Putin’s words try to present Russia in a reassuring light and portraying the European country as a responsible nuclear power.

The words according to the West come as a contrast to earlier statements made by Vladimir Putin and other Russian politicians that were deemed as nuclear threats.

It can be recalled that on February 24, the Russian president boasted of the country’s nuclear arsenal while warning the outside powers against interfering in the invasion of Ukraine.

He warned the West against making actions that could “lead you to such consequences that you have never encountered in your history“.

Days later, he ordered Russia’s nuclear forces to be put on high alert.

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the ongoing war has led to heightened tensions to levels many have compared to the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis with American and Russian politicians speaking of the possibilities of World War III.

CIA director William Burns in April explained that given the setbacks Russia suffered in Ukraine, “none of us can take lightly the threat posed by a potential resort to tactical nuclear weapons or low-yield nuclear weapons.”

It is worthy to note that Russia has a military doctrine that allows for the use of nuclear weapons in the event of an existential threat to the Russian state, and has continued to accuse the West of waging a “proxy war” against it by arming Ukraine and imposing sanctions on Moscow.
