RUMOR of War, Scott Ritter says “Russia Will Use Nukes”
From warnews 247, translated from Greek for your convenience.
A new escalation is signaled by the unprecedented attack by the Ukrainian regime on the Crimean Bridge on Saturday morning with three dead.
Moscow, as everything shows, is preparing for a decisive and rapid response to Kyiv, which, according to Western media, may take the form of a generalized counterattack.
Statements by Russian officials already point to the conclusion that Russian forces will respond vigorously in order to prevent new attacks by Ukrainians with the help of the West on vital infrastructure projects in Russia.
It is recalled that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky interpreted through his advisor Mikhailo Podolyak, that “everything illegal must be destroyed, everything stolen must be returned to Ukraine, Russia must be expelled from everything it owns.”
Moscow officially denounced the Ukrainian regime as a terrorist act, what the first data from the investigations showed.
Rage in Moscow
There is anger in Moscow after the unprecedented attack on the Crimean Bridge on Saturday morning.
The statement of Dmitry Polyanskiy, first deputy permanent representative of Russia to the UN, is typical.
“Glorifying the Nazis, bombing civilians, killing women and children, banning everything Russian and blaming Russia for it.
Spreading terror and destruction.
Made in Ukraine since 2014 with western technology.
We were very patient. Time to destroy everything illegal,” he noted on Twitter.
The Ukrainian action on the Crimean Bridge underlines the terrorist nature of the Kiev regime, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Telegram.
“The action of the Kiev regime, namely the destruction of civilian infrastructure, highlights its terrorist character,” he pointed out, commenting on the comments of Kiev officials.
Russia is running out of patience
The Guardian tries to analyze the situation after the explosion on the bridge in the Kerch Strait in Crimea, recalling the symbolic nature of the construction for the Russians, but also the possible effects on the attitude of the Kremlin and, by extension, on the battlefield.
When he started the special military operation, as he calls the invasion of Ukraine, B. Putin had in his scenarios the possibility of targeting the bridge, which is why he had warned of retaliation, which he will feel obliged to carry out, as he points out in an analysis of the Guardian and explains how this practically translates into a fierce counterattack.
The explosion had an immediate impact on Crimean residents who rushed to gas stations to fill up their cars.
While there are other ways to supply Crimea, including its ports, the explosion and damage to the bridge is extremely significant in a place that until recently was considered by Russia to be beyond Ukraine’s reach.
However, this has changed in recent months.
An attack on the naval air base in Saki in August prompted Russian tourists to leave Crimea’s beaches in droves, even forming a kilometer-long queue at the bridge.
Also, Russian naval forces have been quietly reorganizing as war approaches.
“How Moscow responds is the big question.
But it was a question that loomed ever more strongly as Ukraine had mounted a successful counterattack in recent weeks amid growing concern among Russian elites and commentators about Putin’s conduct of the war .
In April, the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, made threats.
“One of the Ukrainian generals spoke about the need to strike the Crimean bridge.
I hope he understands what the target of retaliation will be.”
“At the very least,” the analysis concludes, “it’s a huge propaganda victory for Kiev that will be seen as a sign that not only is it unafraid of Putin’s nuclear threats, but that it believes it is winning the war.”
Scott Ritter: “The Russians Will Use Nukes”
Russia did not start this “war of aggression,” but NATO will suffer a major defeat, former US Marine reconnaissance officer and UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter said, possibly hastening after the undisclosed strike in Crimea, as the Putin seems to want… “push”.
Ritter, however, predicts the defeat of the Western military alliance. He doesn’t think NATO is really willing to risk everything to defeat Russia.
He even predicted that the Russians would use nukes.
“NATO will suffer another humiliating defeat if Russia defeats Ukraine, a defeat similar to Afghanistan.
The defeat must be digested by NATO, because the consequences of the war with Russia are very great! It’s a very dangerous situation, I don’t know if people have realized how dangerous the current situation is,” he concluded.
