The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Tuesday (21st) that it has launched the first phase of non-strategic nuclear force exercises in the southern military district in accordance with the instructions of President Putin. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed the hope that this exercise can calm the heads of Western countries.
According to a report by Russia Today TV on Wednesday, this non-strategic nuclear weapons exercise is divided into three phases. The first phase of the exercise mainly exercises the work of obtaining special ammunition, equipping missiles and moving to the launch area.
The aviation units of the Russian Aerospace Forces participating in the exercise practiced loading special warheads on airborne strike weapons such as \”Dagger\” hypersonic missiles, and carrying warheads into designated areas on fighter aircraft.
Personnel of the Missile Force of the Southern Military District conducted mission drills on collecting and loading special ammunition for the \”Iskander\” missile and concealing themselves into the launch site.
The Russian Ministry of Defense also released videos of exercises involving the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons.
This video shows the exercises of \”Iskander\” missiles, \”Dagger\” hypersonic missiles, Tu-22M3 bombers, and MiG-31 fighter jets.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday: \”We hope that this exercise will calm the heads of Western countries, help them realize the potentially catastrophic consequences of the strategic risks it poses, and prevent them from supporting the Kiev regime\’s terrorist actions and Engaged in direct armed confrontation with Russia.
\”In addition, the Russian Foreign Ministry also talked about the possibility of Western F-16 fighters appearing on the Ukrainian battlefield.
Russia warned Moscow that it would view the move by the United States and NATO as a deliberate provocation and regard the fighter jet as a nuclear weapons delivery vehicle.
The Russian Defense Ministry said the purpose of the exercise was to ensure territorial integrity \”to counter the provocative statements and threats made by certain Western officials against Russia.\”
Unlike \”strategic nuclear weapons\” that may cause mutual destruction, the targets of non-strategic nuclear weapons, namely tactical nuclear weapons, are considered to be important targets for the enemy on the battlefield.
\”Associated Press\” pointed out that although Russia\’s strategic nuclear forces often conduct exercises, this is the first time that they have publicly announced the holding of tactical nuclear weapons exercises.
The nuclear exercise, which included tactical nuclear weapons, was an apparent warning to Western countries that claimed they would get more involved in the war in Ukraine.
