Russia’s invasion of Ukraine entered its eighth day on Thursday, as the Russian military continues to wreak havoc in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stood by his decision despite all-round criticism. Russia has made it clear that Ukraine must surrender, except that there is no other way to end the war. Ukraine has also made it clear that it will not bow down to Russia.
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday that if a third world war occurs, it will also involve nuclear weapons and it will be disastrous. Russia’s state media Sputnik gave this information. Amidst the bombings in Ukraine, the Russian army has claimed to have captured the city of Khorasan in Ukraine.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin has put the country’s nuclear forces on ‘special alert’. His move has caused concern all over the world.
But analysts say Putin’s move is probably to prevent any other country from joining his war with Ukraine. This should not be taken as a sign of willingness to use nuclear weapons.
Figures on the number of nuclear weapons are only estimates, but according to an organization called the Federation of American Scientists, Russia has 5,977 nuclear warheads worldwide. Of these, 1,500 are about to expire or become obsolete soon after.
The remaining 4,500 weapons are considered tactical nuclear weapons. These include ballistic missiles and rockets that can strike long distances. These are the weapons that are seen in association with nuclear war.
