Putin ally says he should use low-yield nuclear weapons after loss of city

Ramzan Kadyrov, leader of the Chechen republic, in an angry statement slamming Russian generals in the wake of Russia’s withdrawal of its forces from the strategic town of Lyman, said it was time for the Kremlin to make use of every weapon at his disposal.

“I do not know what the Defense Ministry reports to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, but in my personal opinion we need to take more drastic measures, including declaring martial law in the border territories and using low-yield nuclear weapons. There is no need to make every decision with the Western American community in mind,” Kadyrov said on his Telegram channel.

    1. As Shakespeare once wrote: ‘Some making the wars their bulwark, that have before gored the gentle bosom of peace with pillage and robbery’.

    2. @James Neeson All he had to do is give it a short time. He was bent on keeping Stalin out of Manchuria and having Pacific access. Russia’s major ports were north and ice breakers were needed to keep them open.

    1. We were across the line when he was drawing it. Couldn’t comply with his demands even if we wanted to!

    2. He was never going to use a nuclear weapon anyways I mean why would he his life and regime isn’t in danger the only time he would use them is if actual Russian soil was to be invaded the annexed region retaken by Ukraine no not in a million years he may be upset about losing that land but not that upset

    3. Even if he loses the war…he has been smart politically, a lot of people will be watching the Donask region now…and their voices will be heard if democracy is what this fight is for. People will be watching the relationships between Ukraine, America and NATO…and the regions Putin annexed back to Russia.

  1. Deep condolences to all mother, father, children and family who lost their lives in this war. Slava Ukraine🇺🇦🇺🇦

    1. @Chantelle Nutes It really doesn’t Chantelle. People individually are good and decent. Kind, helpful and often empathetic.

      It is when we get together in groups. That’s the problem, because for some reason we still choose the very worst of us to lead us.

      I know it doesn’t make sense, but I defy anyone to prove me wrong.

  2. The only country in history to give up nuclear weapons is Ukraine. It did so under binding assurances from Russia that it would never threaten it’s sovereign borders.

    1. @Khabib nurmagomoodov they were Soviet, not Russian. Ukraine is as much of a successor state as Russia and had no obligation to surrender them. If it hadn’t, it might be in a better place now. Lesson for Iran, North Korea and others. Putin made clear Russia cannot be trusted.

  3. I’d guess that Kadyrov was told to talk about using nukes. That way it could be put into the media sphere without Putin being associated with it. It allows the Kremlin to get a sense of Russian opinion and it is fits in with the Russian philosophy of escalate to deescalate.

    1. @16vjtdalfa Why and how Russia would use gas to undermine NATO? And does the USA selling less gas then required and at higher price to EU countries help to expand the NATO or keep the countries as NATO members?
      Why Germany wanted to destroy the Russian gas pipelines just before those get taken in operational use?
      What would USA benefit if their gas pipelines from Norway through Denmark to Poland, would be only one in Europe?
      Why was Russia able to enforce EU countries to take their gas? Did Russia threaten the then EU leaders?
      Why have Russia never used the gas or oil as weapon, not even to this date? They have always delivered them even when client have not been able to pay. How it is seller fault when buyer declines to pay for delivered goods?

    2. @paristo I already answered your first questions. So see above.

      The US doesn’t set prices it’s the complete market. So Russia creating uncertainty and Germany being to naïve about Russia created this situation. Furthermore you can’t blame the US that they don’t have enough installations to produce LNG.

      Germany didn’t want to destroy them they didn’t like to open them under pressure from the US. Well it looks like the US had any reason to demand it if you look at the situation now.

      Price, buying influence,…. so yet again I answered those questions in my previous reaction.

      Russia actually did that by blowing up the pipelines. They actually have contracts that if they are broken they have to pay fines except in the case they can’t do anything about it.

      Actually they can and did pay.

    3. Kadyrov will get blame of using them most likely ,putin always blames others for his short comings ! It’s never his fault

    4. Putin next move he just appointed Kadyrove to lead his troop in Ukraine front 😂😂😂😂 ura 😂

  4. “UNLIMITED POWER in the hands of Limited men always leads to cruelty.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn/Author of A Gulag Archipelago

    1. not to quibble but unlimited power doesn’t belong in anyone’s hands

      whatever ‘limited men’ even means

    2. @R. P. LaRose some are more capable than others. The fact russia has a 3rd world gas economy, equivalent in size to Texas, should tell it all. Freedom wins.

  5. Vladimir Putin consulted with a fortune teller. He asked:

    “How long will I live?”

    The psychic replied: “I cannot tell that but I do know you will die on a Ukrainian holiday.”

    “Which holiday?” Putin asked.

    “Whichever day you die will be a Ukrainian holiday.”

  6. I’m an Irish guy in the US. I never personally knew any Ukrainians, nor had much opportunity to meet them, or really ever knew much about them, but HOLY SH**!..what’a friggin first impression y’all Ukrainians have made on me! I now have unbelievable respect for you Ukrainians. Slava Ukraine!🇺🇦💪🏼

    1. ​@Mariya Mwaniki not the AZOV Nazis look it up yourself with the black sun and swasticas on the uniform and they have been painting it on their tanks just look for it and you will see

  7. Russian army doing so good it’s achieving very “successful” retreats from it’s own territory.

    1. yes, retreating heroically. Did you see that joker- Russian military spokesman(Egor Konashenkov) lost his voice spewing and giving false info all the time?

  8. I wonder how Kadyrov would feel if the US responded that he personally would be a target?

    1. Hmm. Precision conventional strikes on the most vocal advocates in addition to the forces directly involved in employing a nuclear weapon as reprisal might be a solid idea.

    1. @Sam Aj irag was taken in weeks . Afganistán didnt have the US unleash 100 % airpower on them . Only countries that fight guerrilla warfare hiding behind civilians can stand chance to survive . If they really pissed the US off their whole cities could be annilated but the US trys not to harm innocent non combatants and Even with ombatants are often ordered not to fight unless fired upon

  9. Remember when Lavrov just a few month ago said “they would never use nuklear weapons, because they weren’t insane?” I hope he is right for once.

  10. You must Understand: If nuclear threat is effective in scaring people, those who have it will use the threat more and those who don’t have it will seek to have it.
