If Russia uses nuclear weapons - tactical or strategic - it will turn against itself even those countries that are supposedly its friends today.

This opinion was expressed by military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko in a comment on TSN.ua.

"If we talk specifically about the use of nuclear weapons, then what is tactical, what is strategic - fall under the same position. What is what is what is a nuclear weapon, its use changes the fundamental foundations of nuclear security in the world... When we say that Russia can use nuclear weapons, even tactical, we say that it can immediately turn against itself a large number of countries that are supposed to be its friends. This is the same China, India, Pakistan... This can create an alliance that will be very unexpected for Russia, between the USA, India, China and Pakistan, NATO countries. Russia may start destroying the fundamental system that will unite countries against it," the expert said.

We will remind, earlier military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko told TSN.ua that nuclear weapons are capable of destroying everything within a radius of just a few kilometers.

Therefore, in fact, its use will not change the situation at the front.

But an attack on the civilian population will make Russia an exile in the whole world.
