Ben Godges spoke about US actions in the event of a Russian nuclear attack on Ukraine.
The probability that Putin will use nuclear weapons against Ukraine is small. But if the Russian Federation dares to take such a crazy step, the USA is ready to respond, because world stability depends on it.
About this stated American general, former commander of US forces in Europe, veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ben Godges.
According to the general, the risk that Putin “out of desperation” will launch a tactical nuclear attack on the territory of Ukraine really exists.
“It would be impossible for the US to stay away/not respond, and I don’t think Putin or his closest advisers are suicidal,” Godges noted.
The general explained why the reaction of the States to the probable use of nuclear weapons by Russia is important for the world.
“The US would respond to Russia’s use of nuclear weapons because China, North Korea and Iran are watching it. If we don’t respond, they are bolder. The response will not necessarily be nuclear. They (Russia – Ed.) know that. Therefore I think it is unlikely,” he said.
Earlier, American General Ben Godges called the deadline when Ukraine will return Crimea.
