Threatens full nuclear retaliation.
MOSCOW, Russia (PNN) - April 29, 2020 - Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement Wednesday warning the Fascist Police States of Amerika against putting low-yield nuclear weapons on their submarines and using them, saying any use of a low-yield weapon against Russia would yield to a very full retaliation.
The Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division has been pushing arguments to deploy such missiles as a way to counter Russia and China at sea, arguing that the submarines need low-yield nuclear options. They argue that having such weapons makes nuclear war less likely.
However, Russian officials say that’s only the case if the FPSA isn’t attacking people with those nuclear weapons, noting that Russia has a long-standing nuclear retaliation policy that would prescribe retaliation against a low-yield nuclear strike like any other nuclear strike.
That’s been the criticism since the FPSA went down the path of developing new low-yield options. While officials argue that the lower yield lowers the threshold for use, many have warned all along that more usable nuclear arms will just make nuclear strikes more routine, and nuclear exchanges far more risky.
