Not the first time Putin uses the US precedent in WWII

The US launched nuclear strikes on Japan between August 6 and 9 in 1945. While the attacks sparred Tokyo, the Japanese capital, they devastated the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands.

The strikes led the Japanese emperor to surrender marking also the end of WWII.

Meanwhile, it’s not the first time Vladimir Putinemployed the analogy, warning about what he could resort to in Ukraine given the US precedent in Japan.

During late September, during a televised address Putin presented Russia’s annexation of four Ukrainian regions and threatened the west about the use of nuclear weapons, saying he is not bluffing.

During this address, the Russian President accused the US of creating a ‘precedent’.

Now reports have emerged that Putin has alarmed France’s Emmanuel Macron, when saying that a major city need not be targeted with a nuclear weapon in order to win a war, New York Post reports.
