Vladimir Putin appears hellbent on the possibility of using a nuclear weapon at some point before his time on this planet expires, and the latest warning from NATO could give us a clue about what’s next in this atomic aggression.
According to worrisome new reports, one of the Kremlin’s most potent and sophisticated nuclear weapons has left home, and is now lurking somewhere below the surface of the ocean, possibly preparing for an intense new test.
NATO has issued an intelligence report to its members and allies warning that the Kremlin is planning to test so-called “doomsday” Poseidon nuclear torpedo drones, according to the Times of London.
Putin plans to test it near the Ukraine frontier as proof he is willing to make good on his threat to “use all the means at our disposal,” including weapons of mass destruction, sources told the paper.
The reported warning comes as Russia is believed to have deployed some of its nuclear arsenals, including the world’s largest submarine, the Belgorod, which is capable of carrying Poseidon nukes, the so-called “weapon of the apocalypse.”
That device is believe to be capable of producing a 500m high tsunami of radioactive water that Russia would use to destroy and contaminate the coastlines of their enemies.
The test of such a weapon anywhere near Ukraine could cost Putin his head, however, as his increasingly unpopular war threatens the stability of the Russian people, and as the US continues to guarantee a “catastrophic” response to any nuclear action taken by Vlad Putin.
