As Russia continues to suffer major setbacks in its invasion of Ukraine, the U.S. military supreme leader has cautioned.
General Mark Milley, the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, visited a military base in Warsaw, Poland on Sunday. Reuters reported that he urged the military to remain vigilant. He also said US forces in Europe are not considered to be under increased threat, despite the need for vigilance.
“War is not going very well for Russia right now,” Millie said. We can never know for sure what will happen.”
Milly’s visit to Warsaw included a review of various defense systems, including the Patriot missile battery. According to Reuters, the missiles would “be the last line of defense” if Russian forces attacked the bases and risked a larger conflict with the United States and its NATO allies. You have been asked not to report the names of specific bases Millie has visited.
in the next episode of 60 minutes, President Joe Biden issued a strong warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin against the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Biden declined to give specific details about what that would look like, but said the U.S. response to such a scenario would be “consequential.”
“No, no, no,” said the President. “You will change the face of warfare since World War II… [Russia] They will be more pariahs of the world than ever before. And the extent to which they do determines what kind of reaction occurs.”
The Kremlin released a brief statement in response to Biden’s warning, in which spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “Read the doctrine. It’s all written there.”
Peskov said the country could deploy nuclear weapons in the face of “an attack on Russia or its allies using weapons of mass destruction” or “when the very existence of the state is threatened.” He referred to the Russian nuclear theory, which states that there is.
Russia recently suffered one of the most serious setbacks in its invasion of Ukraine. The latter forces successfully counterattacked, driving the Russian soldiers out of several key locations in the Kharkov area. Over the course of six months of military operations, Russia has clearly failed to achieve a number of military goals, including the capture of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv.
