He expressed this opinion in an interview with the TV show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
According to him, there is a feeling in society that the use of nuclear weapons is an unrealistic scenario, despite the fact that the United States and Russia came very close to striking each other.
“Russia is involved in an existential conflict.
It is crazy to suggest that there is zero chance of Vladimir Putin using nuclear weapons if they really start to lose or if NATO actively escalates, which we do!
This is a very dangerous delusion, under the influence of which many people are, ”said Greenwald, quoted by InoTV.
Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier reminded that the United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons, thus setting a precedent.
Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that the words of the Russian President about the readiness to defend the state should be taken seriously, and not brushed aside.
In her opinion, taking these warnings seriously would indicate political wisdom, not weakness.
