“Some Russian officials have suggested that Moscow’s security interests could be pursued in different ways”: “There are indications that nuclear weapons may be moving, not explicitly,” says NYT, “this approach would have been.” Putin threatened an unexpected response if the West crossed the “red line” such as placing NATO on its doorstep. In fact, last November, Putin suggested that Russia could deploy hypersonic submarine-launched missiles at a range that could strike Washington. Tsar has repeatedly stressed that Western military expansion into Ukraine poses an unacceptable risk because it could be used to carry out nuclear strikes against Moscow with a few minutes’ warning.

The United States will decide later this week on a tug-of-war with Russia, while maintaining serious diplomatic relations with European allies aimed at safeguarding Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
