The only thing that the contemporary West understands is the threat of using the nuclear weapons, said political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on April 27 on The Great Game program on Channel One.
Kurginyan noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement about the readiness to make “retaliatory counter-strikes” in response to “unacceptable strategic threats” was clearly about nuclear deterrence.
“In my opinion, it is absolutely clear that an unexpected interference that would bring us strategically unacceptable risks will only have a nuclear response… And, of course, this applies to a direct involvement of NATO, not a minor one, but a major one, in what is taking place now,” Kurginyan said.
The political scientist noted that Putin has to make statements about the option of strategic deterrence measures exactly because “this is the only language that the enemy understands.”
“This is the only language that people understand today. They are far from understanding any other language at all. Any other language would encourage them to further insolence,” the leader of Essence of Time concluded.
