Exclusively military-technical and operational measures to solve the problem of ensuring the combat stability of Russian missile submarine strategic purpose (SSBNs) is impossible, therefore “the necessary political and military measures,” writes in the “Military-industrial courier” Vice-President of the Russian Academy of rocket and artillery Sciences on information policy, doctor of military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov.
The expert is confident that the new edition of “fundamentals of state policy in the field of nuclear deterrence” allows you to do this by declaring a “nuclear red line”, which gets under destruction by the enemy of even a single Russian SSBN.
“That is, to make an official statement that the destruction of even one of our SSBNs was seen as an unacceptable attack on our SNF [strategic nuclear forces], which we proceed to full-scale use of nuclear weapons,” suggests the author.
According to Sivkov, “the basis for the conclusion of death of the submarine can be two to three times absence from her scheduled session” (usually of the submarine contacted every few hours).
Earlier in July, the expert said that the US has forces that could cause a gouge in Russia.
