In the ninth month of full-scale Russian aggression in Ukraine, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has alerted the world community by recalling the US nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, writes the Daily Mail.
This is how Putin said about the use of a nuclear bomb against Japan in a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron.
The Kremlin chief said the bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which led to Japan’s surrender at the end of World War II, showed that “you don’t have to attack big cities to win.”
According to the British publication, Macron was alarmed by the statement because it “sounded like a hint that Putin could detonate tactical nuclear weapons in eastern Ukraine, leaving Kyiv intact.”
A French government source said the two presidents had definitely discussed the risk of using nuclear weapons. Putin wants to convey the message that all options are on the table within Russia’s nuclear weapons doctrine.
As “FACTS” wrote, earlier on October 23, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu called his colleagues from France, Great Britain and Turkey in succession to tell them about the “dirty bomb”.
