In response to the disturbing statements Putin is preparing nuclear weapons 

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced, on Sunday, the status of the  deterrence force  in the Russian army, an expression that could include a nuclear component on alert, amid the intensification of fighting in Ukraine, which is engulfed by his army, and the level of tension with the West rises to unprecedented levels.

 I have ordered the Defense Ministry and the Chief of Staff to put the deterrent forces of the Russian army on special combat readiness  Putin said during a meeting with his military commanders, reported by AFP. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu replied:  Understandable. 

Putin accused the West of taking  unfriendly  steps towards his country on the fourth day of the Ukraine war.

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 in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

The Russian President had supervised, a few days before the start of the Ukraine war, the exercises of the Strategic Deterrence Forces, which included the launch of ballistic and cruise missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

At the time, the Kremlin confirmed that the exercises were  part of a normal training process. 

The ministry stated that it had planned the exercises some time ago to check the readiness of the Russian military command and personnel, as well as to check the reliability of its nuclear and conventional weapons.

Russia conducts intensive exercises for its strategic nuclear forces annually, but the exercises planned to be launched on Saturday clearly include the Black Sea Fleet, which is stationed off the Crimea peninsula, which Russia announced its annexation from Ukraine in 2014.
