Putin threatens nuclear strikes if West intervenes

The Telegraph, April 28, 2022

Event

Vladimir Putin has warned the West that he will use nuclear weapons if any other country intervenes in his war in Ukraine.  Speaking to politicians in St Petersburg, the Russian president said that

“if anyone sets out to intervene in the current events from the outside and creates unacceptable threats for us that are strategic in nature, they should know that our response… will be lightning-fast”.

Putin said that the military would not hesitate to use the most modern weaponry, in an escalating war of words days after Russia warned of a “real” threat of World War Three. Four days after the February invasion, Putin put Russia’s nuclear deterrence forces on high alert.

“We have all the tools for this, that no one else can boast of having. We won’t boast about it: we’ll use them, if needed. And I want everyone to know that,”

Putin said, in a veiled reference to Moscow’s nuclear arsenal.

  “We have already taken all the decisions on this.”

Comment

It is truly shocking to hear on a regular basis about the possible use of nuclear weapons by Putin and his spokespeople. This week Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the risk of nuclear war was now ‘considerable’.

On Thursday a top Russian state TV editor said Putin is more likely to pursue all-out nuclear warfare rather than concede defeat to Ukraine.

“The most credible outcome, is that all this will end with a nuclear strike,”

she said.

“We will go to heaven, while they will simply croak… We’re all going to die someday.”

This seems to be the attitude of Putin himself. He has nothing to lose. Putin has said that a world without Russia isn’t worth existing.

The Bible says that a time of trouble is coming on this earth such as never was. It is quite possible then that this could involve nuclear weapons. We are told the “elements / atoms” will melt with fervent heat. All the more reason for us to be on God’s side….

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (2 Peter 3:10-11)
