A few days ago, the former commander-in-chief of the Polish Land Forces, Waldemar Skrshpchak, said that the West would use nuclear weapons against Russia in the event of “military aggression” on its part. Washington is increasing its budget to modernize its nuclear arsenal. The world talked about the new nuclear arms race. Analysts believe that in these conditions Russia may return to the program of creating super-powerful nuclear weapons. Does this make sense, the military expert told the electronic publication Army Standard .
Leaving the Treaty on Medium and Shorter Range Missiles (INF), the United States is putting not itself, but Europe, under attack (and this, by the way, stated Polish General Skrshpchak). After all, they will place their missiles there.
Stop the aggressive plans can only situation where the immediate aggressor, and not only his satellites, will understand that it will not be possible to sit out – he, too, will be guaranteed to be destroyed.
Simply put, the “partners” are invited to recall the idea of the irrationality of nuclear war, that is, the unacceptability of damage to any of the parties in the event of its commencement. At one time in the USSR, the thermonuclear Tsar-Bomb was developed and tested for this very purpose. Her tests took place on October 30, 1961 at the Sukhoi Nos nuclear test site (Novaya Zemlya Island). The measured explosion power was 58.6 megatons. The full-power bomb, a little over 100 megatons, was not tested. The fact is that nuclear physicists feared that an explosion of such power could burn the Earth’s atmosphere.
The test of the Tsar Bomb demonstrated that the Soviet Union possessed unlimited weapons of mass destruction. What gave the opportunity for “guaranteed retribution with an unacceptable level of damage to the enemy.”
Currently this idea can be revived.
Here is what the leading military expert Viktor Murakhovsky says:
– The meaning of this, I believe, is. Such powerful combat units can be used as a weapon of retaliation. This also applies to the “Poseidon” (uninhabited submarine nuclear apparatus of unlimited range. – “MK”), and not only. We do not know exactly which combat units are installed on RS-20 missiles (“Satan” according to the NATO classification). Initially, a 25 megaton warhead was made for it. And the possibilities of its production have not gone away. Heavy-duty combat units do not need much. There may be one percent of the total ammunition. Because, once again I will emphasize, speech about punishment. That is, if you decide to commit nuclear aggression, the answer will be that you will not survive anyway. And this answer is something to deliver. In addition to the aforementioned Poseidon, the RS-20, the Sarmat ICBM now also appears. Which, figuratively speaking,
