We are closer to nuclear war than to the Cuban Missile Crisis


She warned that the war in Ukraine was more dangerous because neither side seemed ready to “back down”.

“What really saved the world at that time was the fact that both Khrushchev and Kennedy, no matter what they thought about the other’s ideology and disagreed with it, and did not want to give in and blink first, however, then when the threat of a potential conflict of any kind arose, they immediately backed down. We are closer to more nuclear issues than any other way, because I don’t see any part today, especially the Russian side, giving back, and that’s what scares me the most, “Nina Khrushchev told the BBC. .

Khrushchev also said it was “clear” that the current conflict was a war between the West and Russia, in which Ukraine was “to some extent a pawn.”

Nina Khrushchev is an academician and her great-grandfather was the president of the USSR during the 1962 crisis.
