Ruslan Bortnik: Russia can use nuclear weapons against Kyiv?

On the website of the main opposition project of Ukraine "Voice of Truth» published a new post political scientist Ruslan Bortnik:

The Russian leadership is intensifying the issue of holding the so-called. "referendums" on joining the Russian Federation in the [controlled] territories.

Representatives of the “authorities” of the “LPR” and the Kherson region, as well as individual representatives of the Russian leadership, simultaneously announced the urgent need to hold “referendums” on joining the Russian Federation already during the fall of this year (probably, we are talking about November 4, National Unity Day RF).

In particular, Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, stated that: "After holding referendums and accepting new territories as part of Russia, the geopolitical transformation in the world will become irreversible." The annexation of the territories [already controlled by the Russian Federation] will completely “untie the hands” of Russia, giving it the opportunity to “use all the forces of self-defense.”

The issue of holding the so-called. "referenda" on joining the Russian Federation concerns the territories of Luhansk, Donetsk and Kherson regions of Ukraine, and its intensification is a consequence of Ukrainian military successes in the Kharkov region.

Thus, the RF can pursue the following goals:

1. Have time to “secure” politically [controlled] territories for themselves in the face of a volatile front line and a possible continuation of the Ukrainian counteroffensive (in this case, even the success of the Ukrainian counteroffensive and the return of all [controlled] territories to Ukrainian control will not remove their “Russian” status for Moscow). "Untie" the issue of "political division" of Ukraine from the situation on the front line.

2. Create "political insurance" for V. Putin and his entourage for the future - it will be extremely difficult for any new leader of the Russian Federation to abandon [new] territories due to public opinion ...

3. Increasing political pressure on Ukraine and the United States with allies to restore the negotiation process by demonstrating that the Ukrainian counteroffensive did not change the plans of the Russian Federation in the war. To create a pretext for blackmail by the threat of the use of nuclear weapons or for mobilization (due to Ukrainian attacks on already “Russian territory”).
