The latest nuclear threat against the West has been made by Kremlin propagandists in relation to the conflict in Ukraine,
warning that the United States may be vulnerable to a Russian missile assault.
Igor Korotchenko, the editor of the publication National Defense and a frequent presenter on the Russia 1 channel where guests have frequently called for military action
against Ukraine's supporters, took exception to criticism of Russian actions throughout the conflict.
"Russia is being warned and threatened that if we misbehave, or in [NATO senior member for logistics] Ben Hodges' opinion,
we exceed what he considers to be necessary permissible lines for the use of all types of Russian weapons,
he threatens us with more than just strikes on the Crimean bridge," Korotchenko said.
Hodges has urged Ukraine to be given all the tools necessary to reclaim Crimea, including ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile Systems),
