Russia Threatens American Nuclear Facilities In Allied Countries Is A Legitimate Target. Russia emphasized that it would consider all United States nuclear facilities spread across northern Europe as legitimate military targets. This means that Russia could attack one or more of these nuclear facilities at any time.

This was conveyed by Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova, on Wednesday 6 March 2024 via the official website of the Russian news agency. Maria said that the United States’ nuclear facilities were a threat to Russia. In the midst of clashes with NATO. In Russia’s eyes the presence of United States nuclear facilities in northern Europe endangers the security of the countries that host them.

The United States is the country with the second largest nuclear power after Russia. Reporting from The International Campaign To Abolish Nuclear Weapons or ICAN, in 2023 the United States will have 5,428 nuclear weapons. Thousands of nuclear weapons are spread across the United States, Turkey, Italy, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Not only those five countries. The newly elected President of Finland, Alexander ST, also stated that he would allow the United States to install nuclear facilities in his country. On the other hand, Russia’s movement in intimidating other countries’ nuclear ownership is under the spotlight, such as what happened at Ukraine’s Zaporidia nuclear power plant.

Russia is under supervision by the international atomic energy agency or IAEA. After Russia succeeded in controlling the nuclear power plant in Zaporidia, the IAEA expressed its concerns about the security of Zaporidia, which was not free from the threat of attack in the midst of the Russia-Ukraine war. “We have Just finished very intensive and extensive working session with leagues from Ros with CEO here present director general Alex and also sent of the Ministry of external relations for affairs of the Russian Federation the Russian nuclear regulator Ross technator and representatives of the defense Sector this gave me and gave us I think an opportunity to evaluate the situation around This ap nuclear power plant the situation at the moment”. said Rafael Grossi, Director of the IAEA, to media crew.
