Listen to Julia Ioffe, she knows a thing or two about putin. He is getting cornered with this war, deploying first chemical warfare followed by small range nuclear missiles to annihilate Ukrainian population is very real possibility. He can then use this as a deterrent because unlike NATO, putin is crazy and is determined to change the world order. We are living in dangerous times. Putin has no second thoughts about killing millions of Ukrainian people. A person like this dreams of deploying nuclear arsenal that he is so openly proud of (world’s largest nuclear arsenal).
There appears to be misconception about the goal of putin’s war. The goal is to create a buffer zone against NATO territory. He has no use for the land and especially people living there - he knows they will never accept him so genocide is the goal and nuclear weapon is perhaps the most effective way to do that.
