‘It’s a complete blunder. Why don’t they use nuclear weapons? We will have to take drastic measures.”

On October 1, Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic in southern Russia, expressed his irritation on the social networking site Telegram. Kadyrov condemned as a “blunder” the withdrawal of more than 5,000 Russian soldiers from Liman in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine. The retreat from the key position in the oblast, which had just been declared annexed, was a major blow to Russia.

A number of statements by key Russian officials have suggested the use of nuclear weapons. Itsuro Nakamura, a professor emeritus at Tsukuba University and an expert on the situation in Eastern Europe, spoke about the situation.

On September 30, in a speech on the annexation of the four eastern provinces of Ukraine, President Putin said, “We will use the most terrible weapons against the Ukrainian regime, which has threatened the very existence of our country with a massive attack. In his speech on the annexation of the four eastern provinces of Ukraine, Putin criticized the U.S., saying, “The U.S. is the only country that has used nuclear weapons twice and destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He also said that Russia’s use of nuclear weapons is ‘not a bluff.

One of the foreshadowing signs that Russia might use nuclear weapons is its unilateral annexation of four eastern Ukrainian provinces, he said.

The referendum was held and Russia declared the four oblasts to be its territory. Ukraine is intensifying its reversal offensive against the four oblasts, but on the Russian side, it is a fight for self-defense. The logic is that in order to protect its people and territory, it cannot afford to be choosy about the means it uses.

Preparing medicine to prevent exposure to radiation

Some believe that Russia has no other options in the face of the Ukrainian offensive. The aforementioned Nakamura speaks of the situation.

Ukraine, which has received a large quantity of the latest weapons from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), has begun to roll back, and Russia has no effective means of dealing with the situation. Russia has no effective means to use nuclear weapons, and it is being driven into a situation where it has no choice but to use them.

If nuclear weapons are actually used, where will they be targeted? Mr. Nakamura reveals a horrifying scenario.

They would probably target the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine. The plant is so sturdy that it cannot be destroyed by conventional weapons. Using nuclear weapons, they could destroy the reactor and turn Ukraine into a ‘land of death. Zaporizhzhia, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, has six reactors, and if even one of them is destroyed and 25% of the radioactive material inside is dispersed, the contamination could spread as far as Germany. The number of victims is estimated to exceed 10 million.

If all six reactors are destroyed, the impact on humanity is unimaginable. Russia will not remain unscathed. On September 27, the Russian government has already taken measures, ordering pharmaceutical companies in the country to deliver large quantities of potassium iodide. This is to prevent exposure to radiation. Preparations for the use of nuclear weapons are already well underway.

The day when Vladimir Putin presses the nuclear button may be at hand.
