The United States and allies have stepped up control of Russia's activities in order to prevent a nuclear strike. For this, intelligence from the air, space and cyberspace is used.



Politico writes about this with reference to the words of five current and former US officials.

The United States and allies have stepped up control of Russia's activities in order to prevent a nuclear strike. For this, intelligence from the air, space and cyberspace is used.

So far, the United States sees no sign that Russia is preparing to use nuclear weapons. However, many Russian aircraft and missiles are capable of carrying tactical nuclear warheads. And the US may not immediately know when the Russian military switched from a conventional weapon to atomic bombs.

They will never use strategic nuclear weapons. What they can do is use short range weapons. They have warheads, which we call micronuclear charges, with a yield of tens to hundreds of tons,” says one US official.

Another sign that Russia is planning to use nuclear weapons could be the withdrawal of all formations from the field, except for those that can take part in a nuclear attack.

However, it is possible that Russia will defiantly prepare for a nuclear strike in order to obtain political preferences.
