‘If the West doesn’t come to its senses on Ukraine, nukes could be used by Russia’ – Sergey Karaganov
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Sergey Karaganov, Chairman of the Editorial Board of Russia in Global Affairs and author of the ‘A Difficult But Necessary Decision’ article which argues Russia could escalate to using nuclear weapons against European countries supporting Ukraine to force the US and its allies to back off in the wider conflict against Russia to prevent a global nuclear war and World War 3. He discusses this unprecedented time in history where he views nuclear deterrence to be failing in preventing a Russia-US confrontation; the scenario in which Russia could escalate to using nuclear weapons against European countries to ensure a nuclear conflict with the US doesn’t break out; why the war between the US and its Western allies and Russia is bigger than the Ukraine proxy conflict; and he defends the idea of why a limited Russian nuclear strike against European targets would avert a wider global nuclear war that would end humanity.
