NATO warns Putin of "unprecedented consequences" if it uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine

This nuclear rhetoric is dangerous and irresponsible. But it’s nothing new, he’s done it many times before.” NATO Secretary General, the Norwegian Jens Stoltenberghas notified this Wednesday to Vladimir Putin of “unprecedented consequences for Russia” if it uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine. A possibility that the Russian president has evoked again in the speech in which he announced the mobilization of 300,000 reservists for the war.

“He knows very well that a nuclear war should never be fought and cannot be won: would have unprecedented consequences for Russia. NATO has increased its military presence in the eastern part of the Alliance to eliminate any room for misunderstanding or miscalculation on the part of Moscow,” the head of the Atlantic Alliance said in an interview. with the agency Reuters.

Stoltenberg he did not want to specify what NATO’s response would be if the Russian president ignores all the warnings and resorts to nuclear weapons to defend the Russian-occupied territories in eastern Ukraine.

“The most important thing is to prevent that from happening. And that is why we have been so clear in our communications with Russia about the unprecedented consequences and the fact that a nuclear war cannot be won by Russia“, he insisted.

In any case, the Secretary General of NATO has highlighted that “so far we have not seen any change in their nuclear posture, in their nuclear readiness“. “But we are monitoring this closely and remain vigilant, says the Norwegian politician.

In his opinion, Putin’s speech “shows that the war is not going according to his plans”. “He has made a huge miscalculation. He thought he would be able to take control of Ukraine in a matter of days, but he was forced to withdraw from northern Ukraine, from the area around kyiv. So he launched a big offensive in Donbas. That offensive has been stopped by the Ukrainian forces. And now the Ukrainians have been able to liberate territory.”

“So the speech, the partial mobilization of Russia’s armed forces, shows that he has made a big strategic mistake,” Stoltenberg said. “The speech is an escalation, but it is not a surprise. We have prepared ourselves, we will remain calm and we will continue to support Ukraine“, it is finished.

Despite requests from the government of Volodymyr Zelensky to decree a no-fly zone, NATO has so far refused to intervene directly in the war in Ukraine on the grounds that a direct clash with Moscow would trigger a world conflict. Of course, the Atlantic Alliance has reinforced the presence of troops on the eastern flank to deter any Russian attack on NATO territory. And most of its members have sent weapons to Ukraine.
