Nuclear war will destroy Russia
“To threaten with nuclear weapons” has long been a favorite folk pastime of Russians. In peacetime, it serves as one of the elements of optimistic self-hypnosis and the assertion of the greatness of the nation. Realizing this, the Kremlin and the propagandists nurtured by it fueled the hysteria in every possible way: “Let’s turn the world into nuclear ashes!”
But even being one step away from the quite possible use of nuclear weapons, infantile Russians continue to think that by some miracle they will be able to avoid a new Apocalypse.
In their opinion, the ups and downs of the nuclear confrontation will take place somewhere far beyond the borders of the country. And the possible “side effects” (from another increase in sanctions pressure to possible radioactive contamination of Russian cities and villages) will be minimal.
However, this “constructed reality” is weakly correlated with reality. Expert calculations and the latest computer simulations show that in the first hours of the conflict, about 90 million people will die, more than half of them will be Russians (that is, more than a third of the country’s population). The greatest victims will be among the residents of the largest metropolitan areas of the Russian Federation.
One madman, by pressing the “red button”, will turn the future of a multimillion-strong country into nuclear ashes. And this will be the first collective suicide of an entire nation in history.
