Russia has proposed a demonstration nuclear explosion

Russia should consider the possibility of conducting a demonstration nuclear explosion as one of the measures to prevent hostilities in Ukraine from escalating into a direct conflict with the West. Dmitry Suslov, Deputy Director of Research Programs of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, HSE Lecturer, writes about this.

In his publication, Suslov argues that the situation is such that Western countries may allow Ukraine to strike Russian territory using long-range weapons. He believes that this “will take the conflict to a fundamentally different level.”

“There is only one way to prevent such a catastrophic development of events: a sharp strengthening of the Russian policy of containment and intimidation.”, writes Suslov.

In his opinion, carrying out a demonstration nuclear explosion could be a step that would show the West the seriousness of Russia's intentions and force them to reconsider their position.
