Practice of simulated nuclear missile attacks, Russia says during the Ukrainian war
Russia said Wednesday that during a Moscow military operation in Ukraine, its troops carried out a simulated nuclear response missile attack in an outlying area west of Kaliningrad.
The announcement was made on the 70th day of Moscow’s military action in a pro-Western country, killing thousands and evacuating more than 13 million people in Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War II.
After sending troops to Ukraine in late February, Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened with a thin cover that hinted at Russia’s willingness to deploy tactical nuclear weapons.
In a statement, the Ministry of Defense said in a statement that Russia would “electronically launch” a simulated Iskandar mobile ballistic missile system for nuclear weapons during a war game on Wednesday at a landing site in the Baltic Sea between EU member states Poland and Lithuania. Said it was done.
According to the statement, Russian troops conducted single and multiple strikes against targets that mimic missile system launchers, airfields, protected infrastructure, military equipment, and simulated enemy command posts.
