Putin backs himself into a corner on Ukraine with a Nuclear threat

Vladimir Putin’s recent nuclear threats have fueled concerns that his ambitions to escalate. The situation in Ukraine may go beyond simply committing more troops. Wednesday’s warnings in a rare public address suggested that Putin is preparing to increase the risk of nuclear war in order to avert a humiliating military defeat. Putin accused the US and NATO’s members of engaging in “nuclear blackmail.”

Putin also stated, without going into further detail, that senior leaders from NATO nations had spoken out in favour of “using nuclear weapons of mass destruction against Russia.” Analysts said it was debatable whether Kyiv and its allies should suddenly be more concerned about the danger.

Putin threatened anybody who attempted to meddle with the full weight of Russia’s nuclear weapons in his address in February. He is marking the start of what the Kremlin refers to as its “special military operation” in Ukraine. In a desperate attempt to win, the Russian president combined his nuclear threats with a plan to seize occupied land in the east and south of Ukraine.

According to King’s College London’s Michael Clarke, a professor of war studies, “He is doubling down politically because he is failing militarily.” The military policy of the nation restricts the use of nuclear weapons to direct threats to the Russian state’s survival. Kyiv has previously stated that Russia’s efforts to annexe fresh areas won’t alter anything and that its forces will continue to advance on the front lines.

On Wednesday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed doubt that Putin would use nuclear weapons.
