When Putin was asked if the country was ready for nuclear war, he said, “From a military-technical point of view, we are definitely ready.” He said that if the US deployed its troops in Ukraine or Russian territory, Moscow would do the same. Treat it as an intervention.

“There are enough experts (in the US) in the field of Russian-American relations and strategic restraint,” Putin said.

“So, I don’t think everything here is rushing toward (nuclear conflict), but we are prepared for it,” he said.

Putin’s warning comes after another offer for talks on Ukraine, in which the US has claimed that the Russian President is not ready for serious talks. More than two years of war have isolated Moscow from the West as never before and Putin has repeatedly warned of nuclear strikes if the West sends troops to Ukraine.

The war began in February 2022 when Putin sent thousands of troops into Ukraine. Meanwhile, on the cusp of elections, the US is trying hard to support Ukraine against Russia as Moscow controls about a fifth of Kiev’s territory/

However, regarding Putin’s series of nuclear warnings to the US, Washington has assured that it has not seen any major changes in Moscow’s nuclear posture.
