Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Russian space agency, has warned that Russia could destroy NATO in 30 minutes with nuclear weapons in his Telegram channel.
In a nuclear conflict, the head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency claimed that Moscow would be able to eliminate NATO nations in 30 minutes.
Dmitry Rogozin, on the other hand, cautioned against using nuclear weapons.
“In a nuclear war, NATO countries will be destroyed by us in half an hour,” Rogozin wrote on his Telegram channel on Sunday.
“But we must not allow it, because the consequences of the exchange of nuclear strikes will affect the state of our Earth,” he stated. “Therefore, we will have to defeat this economically and militarily more powerful enemy by conventional military means.”

Rogozin also added fuel to the fire that Russian President Vladimir Putin would use his Victory Day address to announce preparations to recruit Russian people into the military or openly declare war on Ukraine.
“Such a victory is possible with the full solidarity of the entire country with the army, with the mobilization of the state economy, with the transfer of the military-industrial complex and related industrial sectors of Russia to a military footing,” he wrote. “And this must be done immediately and quickly.”
Rogozin claimed in another post that NATO was “waging war” against Russia, using Ukrainian forces to fight a proxy war.
“NATO is waging war against us. They didn’t announce it, but that doesn’t change anything. Now it’s obvious to everyone,” he added.
“The Ukrainian national battalions and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are expendable material, cannon fodder for NATO, they are only operators trained by NATO instructors who press the levers and buttons of NATO weapons.”
Rogozin refuted Putin’s argument for sending Russian troops into Ukraine in late February in the same piece.
Despite Putin’s description of the conflict as a “special military operation” to remove “Nazis” from Ukrainian leadership, he referred to it as a war that wanted to wipe Ukraine off the map.
“We are not fighting the Nazis in Ukraine. We liberate Ukraine from NATO occupation and push the worst enemy away from our western borders,” Rogozin wrote.
“The very existence of Ukraine, separate from Russia, will inevitably turn it into anti-Russia and the West’s springboard for aggression against our people.”
“That is why what we call the Special Military Operation goes far beyond its original meaning and geography. This is a war for truth and the right of Russia to exist as a single and independent state.”
