Putin threatens West with “lightning strikes”

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Legislative Council in St. Petersburg, Putin said that all decisions on lightning strikes in the case of a strategic threat have already been made.

“External attempts to interfere in what is happening in Ukraine and to pose strategic threats will be responded to in a flash.

We have all the tools that no one else can boast of right now. And we won’t boast. We will use them if necessary. All decisions have been taken in this regard.

Our enemies, arrogant, without ceremonies, year after year, making Ukraine anti-Russian, impose a new geopolitical struggle.

Ukraine was pushed into direct confrontation with Russia, and plans to attack Crimea and Donbass were even planned. There was a huge economic war going on against Russia, with more and more sanctions being imposed. But plans to stifle the economy have also failed, ”Putin said.

The Russian president called the blows retaliatory blows. This term is used in military doctrines to refer to the use of nuclear weapons.

A retaliation is a blow that is made when it is confirmed that an opponent’s attack has taken place but has not yet caused significant damage to the defending party (ie when the enemy launches strategic missiles but has not yet reached their targets).

We have all the tools that no one else can boast of right now.

The Russian president did not specify what targets and what weapons could be used to strike.

He did not talk directly about nuclear weapons, but mentioned some weapons that are not available to potential Russian opponents.
