Russia has no intentions of using nuclear weapons

For some strange reason, nobody ever reads or listens to what the president, the leader, of their (fictitious) enemy has to say about stuff. Below is a copy-paste from what Putin most recently had to say about the nuke threats, which, I would reckon, is of value to our survival on this planet, no? So by all means, read the important clip from the translation here;

Mr President, could you please comment, is it true that the world is on the verge of the possible use of nuclear weapons? How will Russia act in these circumstances, given that it is a responsible nuclear state? Thank you.

Vladimir Putin:
Look, as long as nuclear weapons exist, there will always be a danger that they could be used. This is the first thing.
Second, the goal of the current fuss around such threats and the potential use of nuclear weapons is very primitive, and I would probably be not mistaken when I explain what this is about;
I already said that the dictate of the Western countries and their attempts to apply pressure on all the participants of international communication, including countries that are neutral or friendly to us, are achieving nothing, and they are looking for additional arguments to convince our friends or neutral states that they all need to confront Russia collectively.
Nuclear provocation and the inflaming of the possibility that Russia might theoretically use nuclear weapons are being used to reach these goals: to influence our friends, our allies, and neutral states by telling them, look whom you support; Russia is such a scary country, do not support it, do not cooperate with it, do not trade with it. This is, in fact, a primitive goal.
What is happening in reality? After all, we have never said anything proactively about Russia potentially using nuclear weapons. All we did was hint in response to statements made by Western leaders.
Ms Liz Truss, the recent Prime Minister of Great Britain, directly stated in a conversation with a media representative that Great Britain is a nuclear power and the Prime Minister’s duty is to possibly use nuclear weapons, and she will do so. It’s not a quote, but close to the original wording. “I’m ready to do that.”
You see, no one responded to that in any way. Suppose she just spaced out and let it slip. How can you say such things publicly? She did, though.
They should have set her straight, or Washington could have publicly stated that it has nothing to do with this. We have no idea what she is talking about, they could have said. There was no need to hurt anyone’s feelings; all they had to do was dissociate themselves from what she said. But everyone was silent. What are we supposed to think? We thought it was a coordinated position and that we were being blackmailed. What are we supposed to do? Remain silent and pretend that we did not hear anything, or what?
There are several other statements about this matter. Kiev never stops talking about its desire to possess nuclear weapons. This is the first part of the Ballet de la Merlaison. So?
They keep talking about our outrageous actions at the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant. What is so outrageous about it? That is how they word it sometimes. They are constantly insinuating that we are firing missiles at the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant. Have they lost it altogether, or what? We are in control of this nuclear power plant. Our troops are stationed there.
A couple of months ago, I talked with a Western leader. I asked him what we should do. He told me we needed to remove heavy weapons from the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant. I agreed and said that we had already done so and there were no heavy weapons there. “You did? Well, then remove the other ones.” (Laughter.)
It is nonsense, you see? You are laughing, it is funny, indeed. But it is almost verbatim what he said. I told him, listen, you wanted the IAEA representatives to be present at the station. We agreed, and they are there.
They live right on the grounds of the nuclear power plant. They see with their own eyes what is going on, who is shooting and where the shells are coming from. After all, no one is saying that Ukrainian troops are shelling the nuclear power plant. And they are stirring things up and blaming Russia for this. That is delusional. It looks like a delusion, but it is actually happening.
I think I have already publicly said that the Kiev regime’s sabotage groups had destroyed three or four high-voltage overhead power lines outside the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant. Unfortunately, the FSB was unable to catch them. Hopefully, it will someday. They escaped. But they were the ones who did it. We let all Western partners know about the incident. Silence was all we got in response, as if nothing happened. That is, they are seeking to stage some kind of a nuclear incident in order to lay responsibility on Russia and stir up a new round of their battle against Russia, sanctions against Russia, and so on. I just do not see any other point in doing so. This is what is happening.

Now they have invented something new. It was no accident that we went public about the information from our security services that they are preparing an incident with the so-called dirty bomb. Such a bomb is easy to make, and we even know its approximate location. Slightly modified remains of nuclear fuel – Ukraine has the technologies needed to do that – are loaded into the Tochka-U, it blows up and they say that it was Russia that made a nuclear strike. But we have no need to do so; there is no sense in it for us, neither political nor military. But they are going to do it, nevertheless. It was me who instructed Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu to call all his colleagues and inform them about it. We cannot disregard such things.
Now they say that the IAEA wants to come and inspect Ukraine’s nuclear facilities. We encourage this, and we believe that it should be done as soon as possible and the inspections should be at all such facilities, because we know that the Kiev authorities are doing their best to cover their tracks. They are working on it.
Finally, about using or not using [nuclear weapons]. The only country in the world which has used nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state was the United States of America; they used it twice against Japan. What was the goal? There was no military need for it at all. What was the military practicability to use nuclear weapons against Hiroshima and Nagasaki, against civilians? Had there been a threat to the US territorial integrity? Of course not. It was not practical from the military point of view either, because Japan’s war machine had already been destroyed, it was not able to resist, so what was the point in dealing the final blow with nuclear weapons?
By the way, Japanese textbooks usually say that it was the Allies that struck a nuclear blow at Japan. They have such a firm grip over Japan that the Japanese cannot even write the truth in their school textbooks. Even though they commemorate this tragedy every year. Good for the Americans, we should all probably follow their example. Great job. But such things happen, this is life. So, the US is the only country that has done it because it believed it was in its interests.
As for Russia… We have the Military Doctrine, and they should read it. One of its articles explains the cases when, why, in relation to what and how Russia considers it possible to use weapons of mass destruction in the form of nuclear weapons to protect its sovereignty, territorial integrity and to ensure the safety of the Russian people.

Also, let’s not forget that *the reason* the Soviet Union started making nuclear weapons in the late 1950s was solely because of the US having dropped nukes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 without proper (military) motive. The thought process was: “How do you deter a military power when they have nuke WMD’s? By owning the same, better or more of them.” It is in fact even how the nuclear arms treaties came about. In essence, the USA *caused* the nuclear arms race, and we need to stop trying to excuse them for what they did; By starting this they ruined future prospect for ALL life on earth. Same as with much of what is happening in the world today; The USA behaves like a stupid bully on the schoolyard, not thinking of consequences before acting or speaking out, ruining relationships, wasting resources, polluting the planet, enslaving the poorest, all under the pretense of being morally superior, being the best student, the only one we should trust on that schoolyard, which are continuously proven to be invalid presumptions..

    I am American, born and raised. From what I’ve learned about the end of WW2 (much of it I’ve learned outside of traditional school settings) is that while it may be true that Japan’s war machine was broken, as you say, that was not well-known within our borders, at the time the bombs were dropped. It may be difficult or even impossible for you to grasp if you aren’t American, but everyone in the U.S. was scared of Japan, even more so than we were of Hitler and the havoc he was causing in Europe. The reason for this is abundantly clear. It’s the same reason we started fighting in the first place (after watching Hitler burn through half of Europe without lifting a finger to help): Japan launched one of if not he most devastating attacks against our Naval base at Pearl Harbor. Germany never hit us. Not in WW1 or WW2. No other country destroyed as many American lives as Japan did that day. The only other time we lost more lives was during our civil war (which was stupid in and of itself, story for another time). Their style of fighting, Kamikaze crashing into our ships, was terrifying to us. It’s easy to look back and say that they were harmless and defenseless when we bombed them. But we had every reason to believe otherwise. Even though we outnumbered them, they were not alone, but had several other countries on their “team”. And they made it abundantly clear that they were prepared to keep fighting, down to their last soldier, until one of us was vanquished from the planet. There was never any hint that they would surrender until after we deployed the nuclear bombs. It was not the U.S. being a bully. We had no other way to stop them from obliterating themselves down to the last man standing (or so the official story goes, here).

    All that being said, allow me to offer my opinion. I was sick to my stomach when I learned that we dropped those bombs on civilian villages, and that we chose villages made primarily of wooden structures (homes, schools, etc.) so as to maximize the damage caused, as if it mattered what the fucking buildings were made out of. The worst part is, this is not even the worst thing that my country has done. I love my country, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. But, at the same time, I have never once in my life felt proud to be an American. That may sound like a paradox, and it might make no sense. But it is truly how I feel. My country has done horrendous things for evil reasons, and they keep doing them even now. And I am ashamed of these things as I learn about them. I would offer an apology, but I believe that would sound forced and duplicitous. But I am, I feel sorry everytime I think about these things.

      “No other country destroyed as many American lives as Japan did that day.” 2,403 Americans were killed. That’s not even close to Ukraine (or rather its US controlled government installed in Kiev) murdering over 14000 ethnic Russians between 2014 and 2017. Somehow you think Russians don’t have to consider that a frightening idea, to have these evil murdering NATO-nazis surround their borders, or even have them inside their former province of old Russia? Do you even know what the word “Ukraine” derives from? It’s old slavic for “borderland”, or “land with the outside border”.
      “our Naval base at Pearl Harbor”, don’t you see the hypocrisy there? Since when was Pearl Harbor even US territory? There’s a huge ocean in between the USA and Pearl Harbor. Go live in Russia or China for a few years, you may start to see things differently. As far as I see it, and I have no axe to grind, did not experience any of these wars (I’m from 1966), have no american or russian genes or background, looking at it with independent eyes, I see only 1 entity trying to be an empire, and it’s not Japan, China, Russia, Iran, Brazil. Only 1 entity trying to police the world, and it’s not Lybia, China, Venezuela, Russia, Serbia. As far as I know proper non-propagandized history, there were several reasons for Japan attacking those US naval bases, and they were not that strange at all. Again: You may want to check what the US gov has been doing, ever since it exists, they haven’t exactly been the world’s sweethearts, you know? Also see
