What’s Going Through Putin’s Mind?

Can we really afford to underestimate the nuclear threats and go on believing that Putin will voluntarily stop at Donbas? Let’s examine six facts that have caused major concern among NATO leaders:

1. Russian generals have announced an “update” to the military doctrine of 2010. Now, the United States and NATO will be regarded as Russia’s main enemy and as a deadly threat to the country.

2. The generals have asked Putin to specify the circumstances in which Russia could launch a preemptive nuclear strike against one or all 28 NATO member states.

3. In July, Russian strategic bombers conducted at least 20 incursions deep into the northwestern U.S. air defense zone, followed by at least 16 incursions in August.

4. In September, Russian strategic bombers carrying missiles with nuclear warheads practiced several simulated missile attacks against unnamed targets in the United States and Europe.

5. In April, Russian forces carried out a test launch of RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles for the first time in years. These missiles can carry independently targetable nuclear warheads. Experts believe that this time, the missiles were fitted with cutting-edge equipment designed to make them invisible to the U.S. satellite defense system.

6. In March, 10,000 Russian troops took part in a major nuclear attack drill.
