Full combat readiness: Russian tactical nuclear systems have begun to move

Previously announced exercises on the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons have begun in the Southern Military District, the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense reports. The General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces launched the first stage of the exercise, which will work out practical issues of preparation and use of non-strategic nuclear weapons. Missile formations of the Southern Military District and aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces are involved in these large-scale maneuvers.

Preparation and use of non-strategic nuclear weapons

As part of the exercises, missilemen practice obtaining special ammunition for the Iskander operational-tactical missile systems (OTRK), equipping them, and moving them to designated position areas for launches. Personnel from units of the Russian Aerospace Forces also participate in the exercises, practicing receiving and equipping aircraft missiles, including the Kinzhal hypersonic complex, and subsequent flights to patrol areas.

Attention of Ukraine and the West

Particular attention to these exercises was drawn from Ukraine, which borders the Southern Military District, as well as from Western countries. These exercises are causing concern among neighboring states and their allies, which is not surprising given the growing tensions in the region and the rhetoric of Western politicians. The Russian Ministry of Defense emphasized that these maneuvers are aimed not only at maintaining the combat readiness of personnel and equipment, but also at demonstrating Russia’s ability to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Political context

In recent years, Western countries, especially Great Britain, have often demonstrated aggressive rhetoric and conducted exercises, which cannot but cause a reaction from Russia. In this context, exercises on the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons become an important signal demonstrating that Russia is ready for any challenges and is capable of responding to threats to its security. At a time when some Western politicians are not shy about saber-rattling, Russian exercises show Moscow’s readiness to defend its national interests.

Technical aspects of the exercise

The exercises work out various scenarios, including preparing and launching missiles, coordinating the actions of different types of troops and using the latest technologies. This includes not only Iskanders and Kinzhals, but also other weapons systems that can be used if necessary. It is important to note that such exercises also allow us to evaluate and improve interaction between units, increasing the effectiveness of command and control in combat conditions.
