MINSK, 28 October (BelTA) – In case of nuclear strikes on Russia, the United States will not be able to sit it out, and the Thunder 2022 exercise hints at it, Vladimir Kornilov, political analyst of the Russia Today media group, said in a new episode of the V Teme [On Point] project on BelTA's YouTube channel.
When asked about the impact of Russia's Thunder 2022 strategic deterrent force exercise, Vladimir Kornilov noted that the Western media did not seem to take heed. "They write that Putin is flexing his muscles, threatening to use nuclear weapons again. The rhetoric that we used to hear from Western politicians, political analysts and journalists has not changed. They continue to intimidate the Western public that Russia is threatening to use nuclear weapons. But for some reason, the U.S. media and TV shows talk about the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine or in Europe at most. When they talk about the possibility of a clash with Russia, for some reason they think that this will not concern the United States," Vladimir Kornilov said.
According to the political scientist, the Thunder 2022 exercise should be taken as a hint that if it comes to nuclear strikes on Russia, the United States will not be able to sit it out.
