New Delhi: The Ukraine conflict is showing signs of escalating, and Russia on Wednesday announced that it has begun using its nuclear power from the Ivanovo region northeast of Moscow. On Wednesday, Russia's defense ministry said that "Russia takes out its ICBM nukes."
"Strategic Rocket Man missile systems are working on issues such as bringing them to field positions, conducting 100 km long marches, dispersing units by changing field positions, conducting their engineering equipment, conducting camouflage and combat security," the statement said. About 1,000 military personnel participated in the exercise with more than 100 pieces of equipment.
The statement said that Russia's Strategic Missile Forces - a key component of its nuclear arsenal - is intended to prevent a nuclear attack. Equipped with multiple warheads with individual guidance units, the Yars nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) can hit targets at a distance of 11,000 km.
For example, the distance from Moscow to New York on the east coast of the United States is about 7,500 km, while the distance to California on the west coast is approximately 9,500 km. The latest developments come during the war of words between Russia and the U.S. over the supply of heavy artillery from the U.S. to Ukraine. The Biden administration has decided to supply Kyiv with its High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), a more mobile and high-tech variant of the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) that will significantly increase Ukraine's reach by launching pin-pointed attacks against it.
