Russian President Putin’s Statement on preventing nuclear war

Must read

EDITORIAL Kabuki Play v Verifiable Truth. While a Kabuki Play is welcome in art, and politics to maintain peace and stability, or to engage in regime change by “other means,” the latter having come into vogue in capitals of too many Great Powers, it is repugnant when dealing with the onset of deliberate Nuclear War that curses our planet into oblivion. Hence, it’s comforting to know that our, inter alia, NSA Jake Sullivan has been in regular contact with his counterpart in President Putin’s Russia, speaking a language of verifiable truth, to ward off both accidental or purposeful onset of Nuclear War. It is with this contextual background, that The America Times welcomes the Statement released by Russia’s Foreign Ministry defining what Russia will view as our “first strike” and her right-of-reply “defensive” strike. Ultimately, our President Biden, aided by incoming Speaker Kevin McCarthy & Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Leaders Chuck Schumer & Mitch McConnell, need to redefine the global security structure that secures our allies and clearly define actual “red lines” for our current adversaries to avoid. It’s worth noting the remarkable event on September 15th in Samarkand – remarkable unison of PM Natendra Modi and President Xi Jinping in dealing with President Putin about the Unjust War (a proxy WW3) – and the revelation of a real life Count of Monte Cristo – President Xi Jinping – at the 20th Congress of Mr. Xi’s CCP with the ouster of Hu Jintao (then-confirmed directly in plain sight).

Now, then, the Statement from Russia follows.

November 2, 2022

As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and one of the nuclear-weapon powers, in accordance with the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons, the Russian Federation bears a special responsibility in matters related to strengthening international security and strategic stability.

In implementing its policy on nuclear deterrence Russia is strictly and consistently guided by the tenet that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. Russian doctrinal approaches in this sphere are defined with utmost accuracy, pursue solely defensive goals and do not admit of expansive interpretation. These approaches allow for Russia to hypothetically resort to nuclear weapons exclusively in response to an aggression involving the use of weapons of mass destruction or an aggression with the use of conventional weapons when the very existence of the state is in jeopardy.

Russia proceeds from the continued relevance of the existing arrangements and understandings in the field of cutting and limiting nuclear weapons, as well as reducing strategic risks and threat of international incidents and conflicts fraught with escalation to nuclear level. We fully reaffirm our commitment to the Joint statement of the leaders of the five nuclear-weapon states on preventing nuclear war and avoiding arms races of January 3, 2022. We are strongly convinced that in the current complicated and turbulent situation, caused by irresponsible and impudent actions aimed at undermining our national security, the most immediate task is to avoid any military clash of nuclear powers.


We urge other states of the “nuclear five” to demonstrate in practice their willingness to work on solving this top-priority task and to give up the dangerous attempts to infringe on vital interests of each other while balancing on the brink of a direct armed conflict and encouraging provocations with weapons of mass destruction, which can lead to catastrophic consequences.

Russia continues to advocate for a revamped, more robust architecture of international security based on ensuring predictability and global strategic stability, as well as on the principles of equal rights, indivisible security and mutual account of core interests of the parties.
