Former Army Commander USA in Europe, retired lieutenant general Ben Hodges warned that the United States would deal a “devastating blow” to RF in the event that Russia uses nuclear weapons on Ukraine. He said this in an interview with the Daily Mail.
Hodges, who commanded U.S. forces in Europe between 2014 and 2018, believes the U.S. response “may not be nuclear,” but if nuclear weapons are used in Ukraine, the U.S. could try to “destroy the Black Sea Fleet or destroy Russian bases in Crimea.” “. At the same time, he considers it “very unlikely” that the Russian president Vladimir Putin will give such an order.
President of the U.S.A Joe Biden during the speech at the 77th session UN General Assembly in New York, said that Russia allegedly made nuclear threats against Europe, violating international agreements on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. According to him, the United States is working with allies to prevent a potential Russian attack on the territory of countries North Atlantic Alliance. He also called Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement on nuclear weapons a disregard for non-proliferation obligations.
