Vladimir Putin is preparing a nuclear test on the Ukrainian borders, according to the British newspaper Times. The movements of a Russian military train from the division responsible for nuclear munitions, their storage and maintenance are suspected.
The video showing the train was later geolocated in the Moscow region, thus far from the border. Another source of the alarming news is an intelligence report in which it warns of possible actions by Moscow including that of testing the Poseidon submarine drone equipped with an atomic warhead.
The Kyiv City Council reports that it is providing evacuation centers with potassium iodide pills in preparation for a possible nuclear attack on the capital. Iodine pills can help block the absorption of harmful radiation by the thyroid when taken just before or immediately after exposure to nuclear radiation.
The pills will be distributed to residents in areas contaminated by any nuclear radiation if it is necessary to evacuate them. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed a decree in which he formally declares impossible the prospect of any talks with Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin.
The signing ratified the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of September 30 stating the impossibility of conducting negotiations with the President of the Russian Federation. The Russian ambassador to France, Alexei Meshkov, in an interview with CNews TV, said: "For now, Russia has no reason to use tactical nuclear weapons.
In Russian doctrine, there are only two reasons why we could use weapons. nuclear: a nuclear weapon attack on Russia or its allies, or a conventional weapon attack that endangers our very existence." CIA Director Wlliam Burns said to CBS: "It is difficult to say whether Russian President Vladimir Putin is bluffing when he threatens to use nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine.
We have to take this kind of threat very seriously, given all that is involved. game. The rhetoric he and other Russian leaders have used is reckless and deeply irresponsible. Today we see no concrete evidence in the US intelligence community that it is approaching actual use, that there is an imminent threat to use nuclear weapons tactics.
At this point it is very difficult to say. As I said, what we have to do is take it very seriously, look at the signs that indicate preparation and also, and this is the role of politicians. And I am no longer a politician. But the serious consequences that would arise from the use of nuclear weapons must be communicated very directly."
