Kremlin Calls For Restraint In Using Nuclear Option

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Putin supporter Ramzan Kadyrov, head of Russia’s region of Chechnya, has suggested the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine after the Russian Army’s recent losses. However, a Kremlin spokesman has stated that any such use should be in accordance with established military protocols rather than being used impulsively. Russian doctrine allows for the use of nuclear weapons in response to being attacked with nuclear weapons or in the case of Russia facing an existential threat.
