Who would win was not explicitly stated by the US-led bloc’s leader.
Assembling troops on Russia’s eastern border to “eliminate any opportunity for misinterpretation or misunderstanding,” NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg told Reuters on Wednesday. “NATO has warned Moscow very explicitly that Russia cannot win a nuclear war.”
On the fringes of the UN General Assembly in New York, he told Reuters editor-in-chief Alessandra Galloni, “This is hazardous and reckless nuclear language.” He said, alluding to Russian President Vladimir Putin, “He knows very clearly that a nuclear war should never be fought and cannot be won and it will have unprecedented consequences for Russia.”
When asked what NATO would do if Russia utilizedemphasizedbyKyiv nuclear weapons, Stoltenberg responded that it “depends” on the situation but emphasized that the alliance has made it clear to Moscow that “a nuclear war cannot be won by Russia.”
NATO is “watching very closely” to see whether Russia’s nuclear position changes, but he continued, “So far we are not seeing any changes in the nuclear posture.”
In a speech that was broadcast on Wednesday morning, Putin said that the West was attempting to split apart Russia and vowed that Moscow would employ all available methods to protect the nation’s territorial integrity, including its nuclear deterrent in the event of a WMD attack. Putin made it clear that he wasn’t making stuff up.
Stoltenberg underlined that the Ukrainian conflict is not progressing by Kyiv the Russian president’s plan, at least as understood by NATO, and that he had “made a strategic mistake” with it. Additionally, he claimed that while Ukrainian forces are supported uniformly by the West, which Russia “completely miscalculated,” Russian soldiers are underequipped and have trouble with command, control, and supply.
Stoltenberg said, “We are not involved in the fighting, but we support Ukraine. According to numerous Western authorities and media sites, NATO has provided the administration in Kyiv with funding, arms, training, and intelligence.
