At the end of September, Russia openly blackmailed Ukraine and the world with nuclear weapons. Lately, however, the Kremlin has refrained from nuclear threats.


Former Kremlin official Abbas Gallyamov explained why nuclear rhetoric has recently disappeared from the lips of Moscow.

The political scientist spoke about this in a commentary for Channel 24. During the conversation, he told when he was waiting for Putin to use a nuclear “response”.

In the first case, according to the political scientist, the Kremlin threatened the nuclear doctrine after annexing 4 Ukrainian regions.

At the same time, the political scientist says, after the liberation of Lyman, Russia did not use nuclear weapons.

The second time the Russians were waiting for the use of weapons after the explosion on the Crimean bridge.

"However, in response, only general phrases and the shelling of Ukraine with Kalibr were heard," Gallyamov noted.

According to the expert, it became clear that the bunker president is only capable of wagging his tongue.

“He is carried along with the flow, he can no longer do anything. That is why the nuclear threats subsided," Gallyamov said.

At the same time, Gallyamov reminded that it is too early to relax. The dictator can start again.

“Don't relax. I would very much like to say that Putin will definitely not use nuclear weapons. However, there is no such certainty. At some point, he may gather the remnants of freedom into a fist and try to launch a nuclear strike," he suggested.

However, the military may refuse to comply with the order of the head of the Kremlin.

"Putin is becoming less and less legitimate. A crack has appeared between him and the military. The military are unhappy with him. Perhaps if he gives such an order, they will not carry it out," Gallyamov said.

Commenting on the loss of Crimea, Gallyamov said that this would be a huge blow to the leader's reputation, which is very important for his biography.

The loss of Crimea will "zero" the political career of the head of the Kremlin.

“This will mean he will go down in history as a loser. At this moment, despair can be so strong that Putin can decide: “Since I go down in history like this, it’s better if we don’t have any history at all,” Gallyamov said.

According to Gallyamov, Russia lost the war. Further fighting will only worsen its strategic position.
