    AS desperate Putin ramps up his nuclear threats in the face of his faltering Ukraine war, the West is weighing up its options for how it could strike back. Tensions escalated over the weekend after a key ally of the tyrant called for Russia to unleash a "low-yield nuclear weapon" in Ukraine after humiliated Russian forces retreated from a major battleground. 7Desperate Putin is ramping up his nuclear threats as the Ukraine war faltersCredit: AP 7Russian troops line up before heading to the Ukraine frontlineCredit: AP 7Russian president Vladimir Putin at Moscow's Red Square concertCredit: East2West 7 After being encircled by Ukrainian troops, Russia pulled its struggling soldiers out of the city of Lyman - and Ramzan Kadyrov, leader of the Chechnya region, called for more "drastic measures" to be taken. In a chilling message, he wrote: "In my personal opinion, more drastic measures should be taken, right up to the declaration of martial law in the border areas and the use of low-yield nuclear weapons." Although other top Putin allies have suggested Russia may need to resort to nukes, Kadyrov's call was the...
    PARANOID and sickly Vladimir Putin is becoming increasingly bolder and secretive with his battlefield tactics, Kremlin insiders have warned. The dictator is said to be making rash decisions without consulting his military chiefs in a bid to bolster his botched invasion of Ukraine. 5Sickly-looking Putin has stopped communicating with his advisors, instead solely deciding on his next desperate power movesCredit: Getty 5Russia's elite have lost faith in the incompetent President and his sloppy strategiesCredit: AFP Keeping his generals on their toes, sources say the reportedly cancer-stricken President is "losing all co-ordination" and has stopped communicating with his advisors. Instead, the bloodthirsty tyrant is reportedly winging his way through the war as he tries to stave off a crushing defeat. It has sparked fears the incompetent leader could trigger a devastating nuclear conflict as he grows increasingly desperate. Moscow's elite have lost faith in the leader, raising concerns about his sloppy strategies and increasingly bizarre behaviour as he struggles to maintain his position of power.

    VLADIMIR Putin faces being forced out of power within three months despite his nuke threats, the tyrant's former PM has claimed. Mikhail Kasyanov said "factors growing simultaneously" seriously threatened Putin's grip on power. 4Vladimir Putin could be gone from power 'within months', his former PM claimedCredit: AP 4Mikhail Kasyanov said Putin faced mounting opposition to his war in Ukraine from ordinary RussiansCredit: Reuters Speaking with Sky News, Kasyanov said his former boss had a matter of weeks left as Russia's commander-in-chief. "I don't think there is anyone in the circle of Putin who can make him leave," Kasyanov said. "Mr Putin himself should come to this understanding. I think three factors growing simultaneously could lead Mr Putin to such a decision to somehow escape." He said the first was the growing strength of the Ukrainian army, which was winning more territory back from Russian forces.

    Polish officials have started handing out anti-radiation tablets nationwide, as fears grow of nuclear exposure triggered by the war in neighbouring Ukraine. Fire departments have been handed the tablets as a response to the current fighting around Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant - Europe's largest - which has raised fears of a nuclear disaster. Officials described the move as a 'preventative' and 'preemptive' measure. Polish officials have started handing out anti-radiation tablets nationwide, as fears grow of nuclear exposure triggered by the war in neighbouring Ukraine 'We decided on a preventative, preemptive move to start distributing potassium iodide tablets to district fire departments,' Deputy Interior Minister Blazej Pobozy told reporters. He said it was a routine initiative 'in case of a potential radiation threat, which... at the moment does not exist.' The tablets will be transferred to local authorities and eventually end up at distribution points - schools in most cases - where residents will pick them up if need be. He said there were enough doses for everyone who would require them. Fire departments have been handed the tablets as...
    VLADIMIR Putin has officially declared four regions in Ukraine are now Russian in the biggest land grab since World War Two. The tyrant is hosting a grand signing ceremony at the Kremlin today to welcome the four stolen regions of Ukraine to Russia as his seven-month war enters a terrifying new phase. 1Vladimir PutinCredit: RT Putin has formally inked decrees declaring Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to be Russian territory following a series of sham referendums. The ruthless land grab was made official at the Georgievsky Hall of the Great Kremlin Palace in a signing ceremony - although Putin was late showing up to the huge gathering of his cronies. "People have made their choice - and that choice is beyond any doubt," he said in a speech.

    NATO has been urged to a launch a "devastating" response to any Russian nuke strike in Ukraine as the US stages massive war games with its allies. Poland’s foreign minister said the alliance is sending a clear message to Russia ahead of Vladimir Putin's major speech on the annexing of four regions in Ukraine in an escalation of his seven-month war. 3The US, Japan and South Korea stage are staging war games in the Sea of JapanCredit: Getty 3The US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan during the military exercisesCredit: Getty 3South Korean and US Naval vessels take part in a joint navy exerciseCredit: Getty Zbigniew Rau told the NBC News program Meet the Press NOW: "To the best of our knowledge, Putin is threatening to use tactical nuclear weapons on Ukrainian soil, not to attack NATO, which means that NATO should respond in a conventional way.

    Ukraine will never recognise 'null and worthless' Russian referendums in its occupied territories and will keep fighting to liberate them, Kyiv has vowed today.  Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson 'remain the sovereign territories of Ukraine', Kyiv's foreign ministry said, despite sham votes staged by Russia at gunpoint that have paved the way for Putin to annex them. 'Ukraine has every right to restore its territorial integrity by military and diplomatic means, and will continue to liberate' its territory, the ministry added - in defiance of the Kremlin's threats to resort to nukes. Meanwhile American lawmakers were said to have earmarked another $12billion in military and economic aid for Ukraine, underlining their commitment to support Kyiv for the long despite Russia's sabre-rattling.

Ordinary Russians may well have swallowed Putin’s propaganda about his “special operation” in Ukraine. What they won’t suffer is the prospect of a grinding all-out war, the fear of which rose with his vow to press-gang into service anyone with previous combat experience.

    Former Russian MP and Putin advisor Sergei Markov claimed Putin will 'target  A former Russian MP and Putin advisor warned that British cities could be targeted by Putin's nukes in a bare-faced tirade this morning on the Today programme.  Sergei Markov had barely exchanged pleasantries with BBC Radio 4 host Justin Webb when he launched into a series of threats about nuclear war.  'It's not a good morning for everybody. In Russia there's partial mobilisation and for your British listeners Vladimir Putin told you that he would be ready to use nuclear weapons against Western countries... including against Great Britain. 'Your cities will be targeted.' Markov, who was elected to Russia's State Duma in 2007 representing Putin's United Russia party, is now a professor of international relations at a Moscow university and has a history of spouting Putin's rhetoric in Western media. 'If Great Britain will continue to be aggressor against Russia... if Prime Minister of Great Britain Liz Truss still has a plan to destroy Russia, people in London should understand the threat [of nuclear weapons],' he said.

    After Ukrainian counter-offensives forced Kremlin invaders into a string of humiliating retreats, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday announced a mobilization which will see around 300,000 troops called up in a dramatic escalation of the conflict. In a televised address, the despotic leader unveiled his increase in force along with an unequivocal warning to the West over what he called “nuclear blackmail.” “If the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will use all available means to protect our people. This is not a bluff,” he said, adding that he had “lots of weapons to reply.” The mobilization—the first ordered in Russia since World War II—stopped short of calling all of Russia’s 2 million reservists into action or instigating a full national draft. But the increase in manpower represents a significant moment in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine since Russian tanks first rumbled across the border in February. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said 300,000 people with some military experience would be included in the call-up, which has been widely reported as a “partial mobilization.” But experts have...

    President Joe Biden had a simple and stern message for Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin when asked about the potential for a tactical nuclear strike in Ukraine: “DON’T!” In an interview that will air on Sunday’s edition of CBS News’ 60 Minutes, anchor Scott Pelley asked Biden what he would say to Putin amid speculation the Russian leader is increasingly desperate after setbacks in Ukraine this week. Biden gave a stern warning, then scoffed when Pelley followed up by asking what the U.S. would do in such a case: SCOTT PELLEY: As Ukraine succeeds on the battlefield, Vladimir Putin is becoming embarrassed and pushed into a corner. And I wonder, Mr. President, what you would say to him if he is considering using chemical or tactical nuclear weapons. PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! It would change the face of war unlike anything since World War Two. SCOTT PELLEY: And the consequences of that would be what? What would the U.S. response be?

    RUSSIA’S armed forces have staged massive wargames near the US coast involving nuclear submarines. In the chilling of show of force, missiles were pictured being fired in the drills close to the American state of Alaska, as Vladimir Putin’s forces suffered a humiliating defeat in the Ukraine war. 3A Russian submarine taking part in the drillsCredit: Newsflash 3Missiles were fired at targets out to seaCredit: Newsflash Around 30 warships took part in exercises in the Barents and Laptev seas, an area where Russia has stationed substantial military assets. Granit and Oniks missiles were seen being launched from the Northern Sea Route, a strategic route for shipping connecting Europe and the Pacific. The Russian defence ministry said the missiles “hit a complex sea target, imitating a detachment of warships of a mock enemy, at a distance of over four hundred kilometres”. Fears have recently been raised that Russia has “significantly increased” its military presence in the Arctic, with the murderous dictator looking to control trade routes and natural resources there.

    Belarusian aircraft are now capable of carrying Russian nuclear weapons, Belarusian Leader Alexander Lukashenko announced Friday, in an ominous signal over six months into Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine. His threatening announcement comes just days after he sent Ukraine a happy Independence Day message, when he made a point to wish the country “peaceful skies.” Lukashenko, a longtime Putin ally, wished Ukrainians “peaceful skies, tolerance, courage, strength and success in restoring a decent life.” “I am convinced that today's contradictions will not be able to destroy the centuries-old sincere good-neighborly relations between the peoples of the two countries. Belarus will continue to stand up for the preservation of concord, development of friendly and mutually respectful contacts at all levels,” Lukashenko said on Wednesday, the 31st anniversary of Ukraine’s independence from the Soviet Union, and, perhaps by coincidence, the six-month mark of Russia’s invasion into Ukraine earlier this year. Ukraine rejected the “cynical” greeting from the Belarusian leader at the outset. “Lukashenko truly believes that the world does not notice his participation in crimes against [Ukraine]. And that...

The Maryland Democrat told Raw Story the chatter remind him of nuclear threats from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Raskin spoke to the outlet Friday and was asked about talk of widespread violence following the raid. Raskin said: To tell you the truth, I heard all of the chatter about civil war and political violence over the course of this week and it sounded desperate… to me… It reminded me of Vladimir Putin. Every time he suffers a major political defeat or military setback, he starts talking about nuclear war, and that obviously rattles people, but to me it’s ultimately a sign of desperation. Raskin added, “The American people are not interested in civil war, the American people are not interested in political violence… That’s a losing formula, so they should come up with other talking points.” Following the announcement of the Monday raid on Trump’s home, the words “civil war” were tweeted more than one time per second for...

    Vladimir Putin's chief TV propagandist has threatened to destroy England with a giant Satan-2 rocket, but leave Scotland, Wales and the island of Ireland unharmed. Vladimir Solovyov's latest doomsday threats came as the chat show host showed how much criticisms from Boris Johnson and other leading British figures are stinging the Kremlin. The television anchorman has previously threatened to destroy Great Britain with one hypersonic Sarmat, known in the West as Satan-2, a 15,880mph intercontinental ballistic missile.

    Longtime Putin ally Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s notorious space chief, could be up for a new job commandeering eastern territories in Ukraine that Russian forces are seizing in the war, according to Meduza. Rogozin, who heads up Rocosmos, Russia’s space agency, could soon be appointed to serve as chief of staff or a presidential aide as well, Meduza reports, citing three sources close to the Kremlin and an acquaintance of Rogozin’s. Rumors have long been circulating about Rogozin’s future in Russia, but his exact future role isn’t known at this time. Russia’s space chief, though, is known for hurling unhinged threats and comments left and right, and has a loose relationship with threatening nuclear war. When last month Russia’s space agency announced testing of its Sarmat, a ballistic missile that can carry nuclear warheads, Rogozin said he had “a present for NATO.” When Lithuania announced that it was instituting a ban on transits of some Russian goods in its country to Russian exclave Kaliningrad due to sanctions, Rogozin suggested that Russia’s response might include simply not recognizing Lithuania’s sovereignty. “Lithuania...

    Russia’s top space official, Dmitry Rogozin, recited a well-known children’s poem in a YouTube video commemorating a national holiday last week. When he got to the line, “I love everybody around the world,” the clip took a dark turn, showing footage from the test launch of Russia’s nuke-capable Sarmat ballistic missile, nicknamed “Satan-2.” Threats of nuclear war are now so trivial to the Kremlin that they’ve become the stuff of jokes. On Saturday, Rogozin, the director of Russia’s federal space agency Roscosmos, announced the second testing launch of Sarmat—a ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads—which he had called “a present for NATO.” On his weekly show on the state-run TV network Russia-24, Rogozin said he was the one overseeing “increasing demands for this machine that has been agreed with our client, the Ministry of Defense; and of course we have started the serial production of the missiles.” Rogozin added that on Putin’s orders, Roscosmos was planning to assign the first division of Sarmat missiles in the Krasnoyarsk region this year. While boasting of his Satan-2 monstrosity, Rogozin also doubled...

    Russian president and would-be czar Vladimir Putin has repeatedly rattled the nuclear saber in the three months of war on Ukraine. Bluster, bluff, or serious threat? Locally produced and delivered to all county households in 1982. Forty years ago, I served on a local Colorado government committee that put together and mailed a pamphlet about the effects of nuclear war to every county household. I’ve been thinking about it and the Cold War tensions that set us to work on that project as  Ukrainians continue mauling the Russian army, navy, and air force because there’s been talk about the possible Russian use of nukes if Vladimir Putin feels cornered. Foreign policy specialists and leaders—both military and civilian—have for decades argued that deterrence of attacks against each other by the planet’s most powerful nations is the only thing nuclear weapons are good for. The equation is simple: Nuke us and we’ll nuke you back. But as Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown, these weapons are also good as a cover for conventional aggression. The message: Attack us for attacking someone else and we’ll nuke you.  Putin himself...

    Russia's new Satan-2 hypersonic nuclear missile can demolish 'half the coast of a continent', schoolchildren and students have been told by a close ally of Vladimir Putin. The latest threat to unleash atomic weapons on the West was made by Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. He showed videos of multiple Russian strategic rockets at a 'federal educational marathon' called 'New Horizons', culminating in outlining the capability of the big beast Sarmat, also known as Satan-2, an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking targets at 15,880mph. 'Here you see the test launches of our missiles,' he boasted. 'The smallest are shown on Red Square parades… The largest will not fit on Red Square, as they are too big.' He told his young audience: 'Now you can see [on video] Topol, Yars, submarine missile Bulava ... and finally Sarmat… 'Such a missile [Sarmat] can demolish half of the coast of some large continent, which we may not like due to its aggressive policy.'

    RUSSIA has threatened to nuke Britain with its Satan-2 hypersonic missile and obliterate Finland in just ten seconds. The chilling warning has came from a senior politician and was made as the Nordic country has said it wants to join NATO in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. 2Aleksey Zhuravlyov threatened to nuke BritainCredit: East2West 2His warning comes after a Kremlin propagandist also threatened the UKCredit: East2West Aleksey Zhuravlyov, 59, deputy chairman of the Russian parliament’s defence committee, said in an interview “absolutely legitimate” to “question the existence” of Finland. He was asked if Russia now needed to station its missiles including the Sarmat – known in the West as the Satan-2 – on the border with Finland. “What for? We don't need to,” he replied. “We can hit with a Sarmat from Siberia, and even reach the UK. And if we strike from Kaliningrad the hypersonic's reaching time is 200 seconds - so go ahead, guys.” READ MORE ON RUSSIA VLAD YOUR DAY Coup to oust Putin underway & he'll be removed by year's end, says spy chiefDOUBLE...

    VLADIMIR Putin could escalate the war in Ukraine by sending in 600,000 troops and may decide to launch a tactical nuclear strike, a former NATO commander has warned. Sir James Everard, who served as NATO's Deputy Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, said the only way out for Putin now was to "significantly escalate" his forces in Ukraine or send in the nukes. 5 5Sir James said using nukes would be a 'grand strategic failure' on Russia's partCredit: Dan Charity - The Sun Speaking with The Sun Online, the commander said war-hungry Vlad - who had been expected to announce all-out war against Ukraine at today's Victory Day parade - was now "in trouble". Sir James warned said Putin faces being toppled by his generals if he didn't secure a solid victory in Ukraine soon. "He is in a terrible place. It was entirely of his own making," Sir James said.

    AN order by Vladimir Putin to strike Ukraine or the West with nuclear weapons will not be obeyed by his top commanders, says a Russia expert. Christo Grozev said Putin's leading military and security officials as well as oligarch cronies know the ailing despot is either dying or is gravely ill. 4Putin is so ill that his generals won't listen to orders to nuke the West, a Russia expert claims 4Christo Grozev said Putin's generals are too afraid of being persecuted for unleashing nuclear Armageddon The investigative journalist was confident his generals would not risk being hauled before a modern equivalent of the Nuremberg trials for unleashing Armageddon. Nor would they obey a Putin order to kill opposition foes, he claimed. Grozev, who works with Bellingcat, an investigative outfit, said on TV: "I can’t speak without information, but we know that oligarchs from his closest circle claim it.  "We also know that the Lubyanka [FSB secret service] sent a letter about a month ago to all regional FSB chiefs.

    FROM so-called Doomsday planes to Vladimir Putin's top secret nuke briefcase, there are signs Russia could be preparing to spark a nuclear World War Three. Putin has already warned he will use nuclear weapons against the West if anyone interferes in Ukraine - but Britain has downplayed the Russian warnings as "bravado". 6Putin alongside the alleged Russian nuclear briefcase as he met with ally Alexander LukashenkoCredit: AP 6Russian Ilyushin II-80 plane, otherwise known as the 'Doomsday' planeCredit: East2West 6Putin boasted that his 'Satan 2' nuke missile can 'break through any defences'Credit: East2West The spectre of nuclear war has loomed over the Ukraine conflict after Putin's war machine was crippled by the fierce Ukrainian resistance - sparking fears the tyrant could use nukes to break the deadlock. But UK defence secretary Ben Wallace has tried to pour cold water on the growing fears, describing the situation as a "battle of rhetoric". He told BBC Breakfast: "This is predominantly about Putin putting it on the table just to remind people, remind the world, that he has a deterrent." Although experts said the chance of Putin...
    MAD Vladimir Putin could turn the Ukraine war nuclear by dropping a nuke bomb over the Black Sea or by firing at a US target, a national security expert has said. Russia has already warned its shambolic invasion of Ukraine is likely to end in a nuclear world war with Vladimir Putin "more probable" to launch a nuke than accept defeat. 7Vladimir Putin at a meeting in the Kremlin, in MoscowCredit: AP 7Russian nuclear missile in Moscow, RussiaCredit: Getty 7Russia has warned the Ukraine invasion could end in a nuclear world warCredit: Getty 7 While the threats have been dismissed by both the US and the UK as mere bluster, fears of an all-out war using nuclear armaments are a realistic possibility as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine falters and troops continue to meet fierce opposition. Concerns were raised after Russia test-fired its nuclear missile Sarmat 2 last week, with Putin boasting it was able to strike anywhere on earth and couldn’t be stopped by existing missile defences.

    VLADIMIR Putin appeared confused and out of breath as he wheezed his way through his latest speech, threatening the West with nuclear weapons. The Russian president seemed to struggle to catch his breath and paused several times during the address to politicians, stumbling over his words and looking exhausted. 5Putin appeared to stutter during his most recent speech 5At another stage, he seemed breathless 5He gasped as he took several long pauses during the address At one stage, he appears breathless and stuttering, while on two other occasions, he seems to take quick gasps for air. However, if his delivery to politicians in the Russian city of St Petersburg was low-energy, his words were anything but. In his fiery address, Putin warned he would use nukes against the West if it interferes in the conflict in Ukraine. Speaking to lawmakers he said: "If someone intends to interfere in what is going on from the outside they must know that constitutes an unacceptable strategic threat to Russia.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin ominously warned on Wednesday that if any other country intervenes in Ukraine, Russia will respond with “instruments… nobody else can boast of, and we will use them if we have to.” In recent days, Russian state media has been hyping up the same rhetoric, bombarding audiences with jarring declarations that World War III is imminent. Every major channel is promoting the idea of an inevitable, never-before-seen escalation over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is being portrayed as a war waged against the Kremlin by the collective West. Patriotic citizens are now being primed for the idea that even the worst outcome is a good thing, because those dying for the motherland will skyrocket to paradise. During Tuesday’s broadcast of 60 Minutes, Vladimir Avatkov of Russia’s Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs delivered an Orwellian perspective of current events. “What is happening right now is not about Ukraine, but about the future world order, which has no room for hegemony and where Russia can’t be isolated.” Host Olga Skabeeva described a summit hosted by the...
    Russian state media has urged Vladimir Putin to wipe out the UK with nukes over its 'boorish' support for Ukraine.  Vladimir Solovyov, often referred to as Putin's propagandist, made the threat today as he spoke to the head of Russia's space agency about the country's new Sarmat 2 missile which is due to go into service later this year.  'As it turned out, one Sarmat means minus one Great Britain,' Solovyov boasted, saying the UK has become 'totally boorish' - evidently a reference to its vocal support for Ukraine since Putin gave the order to invade. He was speaking just two days after Putin claimed to have uncovered a plot to assassinate Solovyov involving a 'neo-Nazi gang' taking orders from Kyiv. Ukraine has denied the existence of any such plot.  Putin's propagandist has threatened to wipe the UK out using one of Russia's new nuclear missiles - Sarmat 2 (pictured being tested last week) - over its support for Ukraine Vladimir Solovyov issued the threat while talking on state TV about how the new missile will be deployed to Siberia...

    Former US President Donald Trump hinted he would threaten to nuke Vladimir Putin if the Russian leader mentioned nuclear weapons and said 'a lot of people are going to be very happy' when he announces his decision on whether to run for office again.  During an interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV, Trump said he thought the war in Ukraine was 'terrible', adding: 'We're going to be ashamed at what we've done, or what we haven't done to stop this catastrophe. 'This is a catastrophe. This is, in a way, already a world war.' But when asked what action he would have taken against Russian leader Vladimir Putin if he was still the US president, Trump said: 'I would say we have far more (nuclear weapons) than you do, far more powerful than you and you can't use that word ever again. 'You cannot use the nuclear word ever again. And if you do, we're going to have problems.'
