Russia-Ukraine War: Putin Watches a Missile Launch as Russia Conducts a Nuclear Drill After Reprimanding Ukraine

Russia-Ukraine War: On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin observed nuclear-capable army drills as Moscow prodded India and China with baseless allegations that Ukraine was constructing a “dirty bomb.”

The exercises are the most recent in a string of escalating remarks from Moscow and Mr. Putin, who watched the exercises from a control room, warning that the eight-month conflict in Ukraine might escalate to nuclear war.
The Kremlin released a statement saying that “under Vladimir Putin’s leadership, a training session with ground, sea, and air strategic deterrence forces was held, during which practical launches of ballistic and cruise missiles took place.”

A submarine crew preparing to launch a Sineva ballistic missile from the Barents Sea in the Arctic was captured on camera by state-run Russian media.

The Russian Far East’s Kamchatka peninsula served as the launch site for test missiles during the drills.

The drills were seen on camera by official media as Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s defence minister, continued to call his international counterparts while saying that Ukraine was manufacturing a “dirty bomb.”

These assertions, which Mr. Shoigu previously made to counterparts from NATO nations, were stated again to his Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe on Wednesday.

The same “concerns” were also expressed by Mr. Shoigu to Rajnath Singh, the Indian Defense Minister, earlier on Wednesday, according to Moscow.

“Absurd” and “dangerous,” Ukraine and its allies rejects the accusations

Both Ukraine and its allies in the west, including Britain, France, and the United States, have rejected the accusations as “absurd” and “dangerous,” indicating they may be used as justification for Russia’s own military strategies.

About ‘Dirty Bomb’:

A conventional bomb that has been contaminated with radioactive, biological, or chemical substances and released during an explosion is referred to as a dirty bomb.

Earlier on Wednesday, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesperson for the Kremlin, told reporters that Moscow had information about the “existing threat” that Ukraine would use a “dirty bomb” and that Kyiv was “getting ready for such a terrorist act of sabotage.”
“We will keep vehemently advocating our point of view to the international community to encourage them to take proactive measures to prevent such irresponsible behaviour,” he continued.

In September, when Moscow declared it was annexing four regions of Ukraine that its forces only partially controlled, nuclear rhetoric from Moscow started to rise. Mr. Putin forewarned that Russia might defend them with nuclear weapons.

One of such areas is Kherson, which is in southern Ukraine close to the Crimea that Moscow has annexed. Since Kyiv started a counteroffensive at the end of the summer, it has been regaining ground in Kherson.
Recently, authorities supported by Russia pushed citizens to leave because of what they claimed was an impending assault. They vowed to protect Kherson at all costs, claiming to have transformed the city into a “fortress.”

Vladimir Saldo, a regional official recently appointed by Moscow, claimed on Wednesday that at least 70,000 residents have fled their houses in the previous week.

By taking control of the Kherson region, Ukraine would regain crucial access to the Sea of Azov. As a result, Moscow’s land connection to the Crimean Peninsula would be severed.

According to a statement posted on his social media on Wednesday, Mr. Saldo has prohibited admission to the right bank portion of the area for a period of seven days “because to the sensitive situation on the contact line”.

A wave of international solidarity with Kyiv was sparked by Russia’s drive to annex Ukrainian land, and hundreds of foreigners volunteered to assist in repelling Russian advances.

In a prisoner exchange, Kiev reported on Wednesday that Russia had given 10 Ukrainian servicemen and the body of American citizen Joshua Alan Jones, who died in an encounter with Russian forces in August.
