So-called "nuclear train" is heading to Ukrainian border in front line direction - The Times

russia is probably planning to test nuclear weapons near the Ukrainian border

EP writes about this, referring to The Times.

As noted in the publication, putin directed the so-called "nuclear train" in the direction of the front line for this purpose.

The dictator made it clear that he was ready to use nuclear weapons to defend russia.

Tensions especially increased after it annexed four regions of Ukraine, where fierce battles occur.

The media outlet emphasizes that now a convoy of BPM-97 armored personnel carriers and other military equipment is moving through central russia. This was reported by the pro-russian channel "Rybar" on Telegram.

According to reports, this sophisticated equipment, which includes anti-mine weapons, belongs to the 12th Main Directorate of the russian army.

It manages the central storage of nuclear weapons.

Polish military analyst Konrad Muzyka noted that this train is responsible for nuclear munitions, their storage, maintenance, transportation, and delivery to relevant units.

This could mean that nuclear weapons are being taken to the front, or it could be putin's attempt to threaten and intimidate the West.

"Does this mean this video shows preparations for a nuclear explosion? Not really. There are other more plausible explanations," Muzyka tweeted about the image.

In his opinion, this can be a message for the West, or military equipment can be used for training purposes.

As previously reported, NATO intelligence warned the Allies about a possible russian test of the Poseidon super torpedo equipped with a nuclear charge.

However, the Center for Combating Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Ministry warned that the information about the submarine "Belhorod" could play into the hands of russian propaganda. And "unsubstantiated statements by the media only increase the information terrorism of the russian federation."

It will be recalled that British Defense Minister Ben Wallace considers it extremely unlikely that putin will use nuclear weapons against Ukraine but emphasizes that putin is acting "irrationally."

As you know, after the announcement of partial mobilization in the russian federation, the dictator once again threatened Western countries with the use of nuclear weapons.

Western leaders have condemned putin's nuclear rhetoric, calling it a dangerous escalation and "arms rattling."
