The US and its NATO allies must remain alert for signs Russian President Vladimir Putin could use a tactical nuclear weapon in a “managed” escalation of his war in Ukraine, the second-highest US diplomat said on Tuesday (18 April).

A vicesecretaria de Estado Wendy Sherman emitiu a advertencia durante a sesión de apertura dunha conferencia anual de control de armas da OTAN que se celebraba en América do Norte por primeira vez desde o seu inicio en 2004.

“We have all watched and worried that Vladimir Putin would use what he considers a non-strategic tactical nuclear weapon or use some demonstration effect to escalate, but in an managed risk escalation,” Sherman said. “It is very critical to remain watchful of this.”

de Putin 25 Anuncio de marzo that Russia is preparing to station tactical nuclear weapons in neighboring Belarus “is his effort to use this threat in a managed way”, Sherman said.

As armas nucleares tácticas están deseñadas para gañar o campo de batalla ou para usar contra obxectivos militares limitados.

Putin nega ter ningunha intención de empregar armas nucleares en Ucraína, onde as súas forzas levan meses empantanadas en feroces loitas que foron custosas para ambas as partes.

Bielorrusia, que comparte fronteira con Ucraína e os membros da OTAN Polonia, Lituania e Letonia, proporcionou un escenario para parte da forza rusa que invadiu Ucraína en febreiro de 2022 nun intento fallido de invadir o país.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who joined Sherman in opening the conference, called Putin’s plan to place tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus part of a years-long pattern of “dangerous, irresponsible nuclear rhetoric” that intensified with “the brutalization of Ukraine”.

The alliance, he said, is “monitoring very closely what they (Russia) are doing”.

Sherman said the United States would continue to “downgrade” intelligence for sharing with NATO’s other 30 members “so that everyone knows…where we stand”.
