According to him, the West overcame its fear of nuclear blackmail and rebuffed the Russian president.


Russian President Vladimir Putin was told in the West that in the event of the use of nuclear weapons, a crushing blow would be dealt to him and the Russian Federation.

Political scientist Andrey Piontkovsky said this on the air of Espresso.

"Putin successfully used nuclear blackmail for 15 years. Thanks to this, Ukraine and Georgia were not admitted to NATO in 2008 and after. Because of this, there was no reaction to the war in Georgia, the annexation of Crimea, and so on," he said.

The political scientist believes that the West has finally overcome its fear of this blackmail and created a tactical nuclear weapons system.

"And it was unequivocally stated to Putin at all levels, except for Biden personally. But Biden asked to ask him a question. Putin was told that because of the use of nuclear weapons, the West would not capitulate but rather would be ready also to use tactical nuclear weapons and other means and inflict a crushing blow to Russia, including Putin. Simply put, he was told that he would be killed if he used nuclear weapons. They would personally kill him. Therefore, this card has already been beaten," Piontkovsky summed up.
