Russia Officially Declares Right to Nuke Potential Aggressor
Advertisements [?]
A new version of Russias military doctrine will contain details of using nuclear arms when repelling aggression with the use of conventional means of destruction in both large-scale and local armed conflicts.



Nikolai Patrushev, the head of Russias Security Council, said in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper that Russia would consider an opportunity of using nuclear arms depending on circumstances and intentions of a potential enemy.

In situations critical for national security, a preventive nuclear strike against the aggressor is not ruled out, he said.

The section of Russias military doctrine about the opportunity to use nuclear weapons was formulated to preserve the status of a nuclear power for the Russian Federation. The document states that Russia can apply nuclear deterrence against potential enemies to prevent aggression against Russia and its allies.
