On Monday, the Russian military announced that its nuclear deterrent forces are on high alert, in line with President Vladimir Putin's instructions.


Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told the President that he had strengthened the command posts of all Russian nuclear forces with additional personnel.


The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the state of high alert applies to all components of the Russian nuclear forces - the Strategic Missile Forces - which oversee the Russian land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well as the Northern and Pacific Fleet, which launch ICBMs from submarines, and the long-range aviation forces. Which owns a fleet of strategic bombers with nuclear capabilities.


And Putin had appeared in a video clip, on Sunday, to order the army commanders to put the deterrence force in the Russian army, in a special case for combat.


Putin said during a meeting with his military commanders:  I have ordered the Ministry of Defense and the Chief of Staff to put the deterrent forces in the Russian army on special alert for combat Understood Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu replied.


Putin justified his decision by condemning the aggressive statements of NATO  towards Russia, and criticized the illegal  economic sanctions, in his view, imposed by the West on Russia.


It was not clear what specific steps Putin's decision referred to, but it raised fears that the war in Ukraine could lead to a larger and more dangerous confrontation.


According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the  Nuclear Deterrence Forces  are a group of units whose purpose is to deter any attack on Russia, including in the event of a war involving the use of nuclear weapons.


The strategic deterrence forces are divided into offensive and defensive forces, and nuclear deterrence forces form the basis of offensive forces, which rely on intercontinental missile and air systems, and high-precision long-range weapons.


The offensive forces also include the non-nuclear strategic forces, which mainly rely on strategic and long-range bombers, ships, submarines and aircraft carrying high-precision and long-range missiles.


According to the Russian Ministry of Defense website, the strategic defense forces depend on the forces and means of the Defense Forces, which include the missile attack warning system, the space field monitoring system, anti-missile defenses, space means and aircraft.
