President Joe Biden has warned Russia that the United States will not be intimidated by reckless threats after Vladimir Putin annexed four occupied regions of Ukraine.

 

Mr Putin appeared to make a veiled threat to use nuclear weapons to defend the new annexed territories.

 

He declared that the regions would "forever" be part of Russia.

 

Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg called the annexation "the most serious escalation since the start of the war".

How do you figure this? The vote was to condemn the annexation not a question whether to support it. And India refused to say annexation is wrong. This is a vote that should be remembered the next time India asks for a permanent seat on the Security Council or wants to complain about China annexing its territory. 

That's figured out quite simply, an abstention does not affect the vote as long as there is a majority without a veto.

 

China and India abstained on a vote to condemn Russia's annexation of Ukraine's land just weeks after Putin acknowledged their concerns about the war

The question is whether or not it sent Russia a message. Previously China had spoken of its undying support or something similar for Russia. Does an abstention look like that to you? And India is moving away from Russia because the Chinese insist that Russia no longer sell weapons to the enemy opposing Chinese expansionism in the Himalayas.

I think enough messages sent. Russia has itself disqualified to be a member of the Security Council. As the name implies hostile nations not considerate of their fellow humans needs should not be part of that club. All of them.

Will Putin use Nuclear weapons in the Ukraine or not ?

 

If he does not , he will likely lose the war . Ukrainian soldiers are well motivated and armed . US intelligence is helping them a lot .

 

If Putin does use nukes , it will directly lead to a reaction of the western forces .

What will that reaction be ? Counterattack on russian territory ?

 

That would be the start of WW III .

I don't understand. Do you mean Biden is opposing Russia because of Hunter's dealings in Russia?

There is a rumour saying that the U.S. had warned Russia that it will destroy Russian tactical nuclear missile launchers if they are moved towards Ukraine. They have a max range of 300 km and are under satellite watch.

It's been evoked by military experts. No idea if it is true or not, but it makes sense.

Any attack on russian territory would eventually provoke a russian nuclear strike ... they made that quite clear ...

Russia has already illegally annexed the new 4 regions into Russian territory. Ukraine is attacking them very successfully right now, they have also made some major attacks in Crimea previously.

It did. India sent a message saying they will not condemn Putin's annexation of Ukrainian territory. I don't care about China, which is all but a declared enemy, which has its own problems with the status of Taiwan. India is the country the US is trying to feed state of the art weaponry, undertaking join maneuvers with along the Chinese border, and giving preference to in work visas in the US. What is the average Indian's attitude towards Biden and the US? Look at the comments section that is part of that Times of India link. They are solidly pro Russian and pro Putin.

Putin is on his own with the annexation. The only states that may publicly support it in a full UN General Assembly will be places such as North Korea or Belarus.

At least Biden does not act on his own ego, he have a stab where they make decisions together, and a bit more predictable. He is a Politician.

Please just one thing.

Just read this on CNN , very funny but true ?

 

https://edition.cnn.com/2022/09/30/europe/russia-ukraine-annexation-analysis-intl/index.html

 

> " The days ahead will be febrile enough that this is a question nobody should seek to answer. But we are slowly seeing the gulf between what Russia wants, what it can do and what is actually happening – a gulf it normally filled with fear and threatening rhetoric – being exposed on the world stage. How Moscow reacts will decide the world we live in in the next decades. "<
