Russia’s bloodthirsty dictator, Vladimir Putin, fired a new volley in his nuclear war threats against the West, while exposing his long-standing mania to be as powerful as the United States.
Putin told the leader of France that America’s 1945 atomic bombing of Japan’s Hiroshima presented a notable example of how to use nukes to win a war.
Nukes Are All Putin Has Left
8.5 months ago, Putin declare a de facto war on western nations by launching a full-scale, unprovoked armed invasion of Ukraine, thus defying the entire international order established since the collapse of the former Communist Soviet Union in 1991.
Ukraine gained the upper hand in the war since the end of June. It has liberated half of the territories that Russian invaders managed to capture after their initial thrust.
After September, Putin saw himself forced to declare mass mobilization to raise more cannon fodder for his Ukraine war. The Moscow tyrant and his propagandists have raged with nuclear war threats against the West.
Apart from directly threatening America and its allies with Russia’s nukes, whose condition is increasingly questioned against the backdrop of the Russian military’s performance in the war so far, the Putin regime threatened to detonate one or more tactical nukes inside Ukraine.
Unofficial sources, such as retired US military commanders and Kremlin insider reports, have disclosed the US told Moscow that Russia would face a devastating NATO response; so would Putin, personally, if Ukraine gets nuked.

Western Leaders Got ‘Very Alarmed’
In a new telephone conversation with France’s President Emmanuel Macron, Putin not only threatened the West with nuclear weapons, but he also laid bare his sick ambition to be as powerful as the United States.
Speaking with Macron, Putin referenced the atomic bombings of Japan’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki that the US carried out at the end of World War II, according to diplomatic sources cited by The Daily Mail.
The report said Putin’s direct mention of the usage of nukes during the Second World War had the effect of alarming western leaders.
According to the cited sources, during his call with Macron, Putin declared the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings showed one did not “need to attack” the enemy’s major cities to win a war – it could just nuke less important cities.
That is, in the World War II case, the US did not nuke Tokyo or Yokohama, for instance.
Putin’s bloodthirsty reasoning seems to support the warnings by Russian opposition figure Prof. Valery Solovey. He claims insider information from the Kremlin that the tyrant already made up his mind to use one or more nukes in Ukraine.
According to one of the cited diplomatic sources, France’s President Macron was “distinctly alarmed” by Putin’s words. He took them as a “very heavy hint” that the Moscow autocrat decided to blow up nukes in Eastern Ukraine, while sparing the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
