BREAKING: Putin orders Russia’s nuclear deterrent forces to be on ‘a special regime of duty’

US, NEW YORK (ORDO NEWS) — Putin orders Russia‘s nuclear deterrent forces to be on ‘a special regime of duty’.

“Western countries are not only taking unfriendly actions against our country in the economic area. I’m speaking about the illegitimate sanctions that everyone is well aware of. However, the top officials of the leading NATO countries also make aggressive statements against our country as well,” Putin stated.

Russia’s deterrent forces include various strategic weapons, both nuclear and conventional, that can be used for defense and offense alike. According to Russia’s military definition, the forces are designed to “to deter aggression against Russia and its allies, as well as to defeat the aggressor, including in a war with the use of nuclear weapons.”

The move comes amid the ongoing offensive by Russia in neighboring Ukraine, launched by Moscow on February 24. The military operation followed Russia’s formal recogniton of the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, which split from Kiev back in 2014.
