Skip to comments.Biden admin quietly warned Putin for months about consequences over nuke use

The United States for several months has been sending private communications to Moscow warning Russia’s leadership of the grave consequences that would follow the use of a nuclear weapon, according to U.S. officials, who said the messages underscore what President Biden and his aides have articulated publicly.
The Biden administration generally has decided to keep warnings about the consequences of a nuclear strike deliberately vague, so the Kremlin worries about how Washington might respond, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive deliberations.
The attempt by the White House to cultivate what’s known in the nuclear deterrence world as “strategic ambiguity” comes as Russia continues to escalate its rhetoric about possible nuclear weapons use amid a domestic mobilization aimed at stanching Russian military losses in eastern Ukraine.
The State Department has been involved in the private communications with Moscow, but officials would not say who delivered the messages or the scope of their content. It was not clear whether the United States had sent any new private messages in the hours since Russian President Vladimir Putin issued his latest veiled nuclear threat during a speech announcing a partial mobilization early Wednesday, but a senior U.S. official said the communication has been happening consistently over recent months.

‘Putin quietly warned the dementia-ridden BidenIdiot Administration and the EU/NATO for months about the consequences over nuke use.’
Didn’t Ukraine and Russia want to come to the table and the US intervened back in April? Appears without US intervention this war would be over.
Can we deal with our own border? 80 billion would build a big wall and maybe less than 70,000 a year wouldn’t die from Fentynal?
What kind of idiot are you?
The Russians can do the same to every major American city.
And, over what? A corrupt to the bone Ukraine that has banned all opposition parties, arrested opposition leadership, seized all media, arrests dissenters and has brided pefo Joe and his Coke head perverted son.
Yeah, that is certainly worth the destruction of the modern world.
No, that was a lie. Never happened.
Russia-Ukraine war: The western threat of nuclear annihilation’
“It was back in February that the West began to threaten Russia with nuclear war in response to a statement given by President Vladimir Putin. ...”
Perhaps you should tell that to Comrade Putin, Comrade Banana.
Russia has enough nukes to eradicate this planet 6 times over.
US still struggling to get working hypersonic missiles and build a rocket.....
You mean that February 22 statement by Comrade Putin threatening nuclear war against the West?
I can't believe all the breathless posts about Russia, ripped straight from the pages of the Weekly World News. I never thought there was anything which would displace Batboy from the front page, but P.D.S has done the impossible.
Because Comrade Putin is threatening to destroy the world if he doesn't get what he wants, i.e. Ukraine and a revived Soviet Union?
USA infrastructure is worth 10 times bigger than Russia.
In a nuclear war, USA loses 10 times wealth and 10 times people. Because we have basically 3 time zones plus Hawaii.
Russia has 12 time zones...much better chance of some people surviving.
In conclusion, USA will lose 10 times lives and wealth as Russia.
Fuxxx Ukraine. Ukraine, the most corrupt coumtry in Europe, with a homo-erotic dancer as leader is not worth destruction of United States of America.
Here, you all play around with it instead of posting up incessant propaganda daily?
I take it back. You are just too stupid to debate.
Wanting peace and not blowing up the planet over the corrupt to the bone Ukraine which should have be a non issue with sensible men in the room.
And your moronic comeback...
“Perhaps you should tell that to Comrade Putin, Comrade Banana.”
If you could read you would see it was an offensive threat in reply to his defensive threat.
Now you have to go after Biden’s long history of neoliberal warmongering, how he funds Zelensky, how he, Pelosi, Soros, Adam Schiff, etc, are all tied to the hip of Zelensky to prove you are a true conservative whereas I have said repeatedly we need to stay out of this, side with neither side, defend America’s borders, because Putin won’t attack a NATO member, and because we’re 30 trillion in debt.
So all would be well if we would just give Comrade Putin what he wants, and he would go away?
TR repeatedly has failed to even post the bare minimum proving he is a true conservative.
Putin KNOWS who is in charge.
