(RepublicanInformer.com)- Russian President Vladimir Putin may be ready to unleash nuclear weapons on the battlefield, given his country’s rising military casualties. According to reports, an army train is moving equipment for the country’s nuclear weapons program to the frontlines of its war with Ukraine.
The covert nuclear division manages the train and connects to the 12th central directorate of the Russian ministry of defense. According to reports, the train was traveling from central Russia to Ukraine when it was captured on a Russian propaganda Telegram account.
Military defense expert Konrad Muzyka claimed that the 12th directorate manages 12 locations for storing Russia’s nuclear weapons.
The expert declared that this ly a kit belonging to the 12th Main Directorate of the Russian MoD. The storage, upkeep, transportation, and distribution of nuclear bombs to units are all under the control of the Directorate.
According to Muzyka, the action might be interpreted by the West as a sign that Putin is “escalating” his efforts to win in Ukraine and is becoming increasingly concerned about the state of affairs.
According to the report, sources suggested that NATO informed its members in an intelligence assessment that Russia is anticipated to test a potent nuclear torpedo drone named Poseidon very soon. Russia launched hypersonic missiles against Ukraine early in its invasion, the first known instance in history of any force using novel weapons in a combat situation.
Putin vowed to use nuclear weapons last week, stating that if his country’s territorial integrity is challenged, he will, without a doubt, use all available means to protect Russia and his people. “This is not a bluff,” he declared.
This week, the nuclear train was spotted.
Following up on Putin’s warning, former president and current deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev asserted that Russia had the legal right to use nuclear weapons: “Let’s imagine that Russia is forced to use the most fearsome weapon against the Ukrainian regime that had committed a large-scale act of aggression that is dangerous for the very existence of our state.”
Reporters frequently questioned the Biden administration’s claims that Russia was relocating its nuclear train and whether it was preparing for any eventualities if nuclear weapons were deployed in Ukraine, but officials continually provided very little information.
