The Kremlin has warned on Tuesday that annexed regions in Ukraine are “inalienable” parts of the Russian Federation and they are all “protected” with nuclear weapons.
Last month Vladimir Putin and Russian parliament declared the annexation of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia following “sham” referendums.
The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declared that the annexation was illegal along with Western allies including the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned, “All these territories are inalienable parts of the Russian Federation and they are all protected.

“Their security is provided for at the same level as the rest of Russia’s territory.”
Peskov was asked over Russia conducting their own nuclear drills, Peskov said, “There is an established system of notifications to inform about the conduct of exercises, and this is carried out through the channels of the Ministry of Defence.”
Putin issued yet another threat last week and he warned the door is open for a “massive attack” and said he has “no regrets over the war” as he gave a speech in Astana the capital of Kazakhstan.
Last week Putin warned of a “global catastrophe” should there be any clashes with NATO making yet another reference to a nuclear war.
Putin added, “I hope that those who are saying this are smart enough not to take such steps.”
The Kremlin has also deployed 11 strategic “Blackjack” nuclear bombers a few miles from the Finnish and Norwegian borders as tensions remain on a knife edge as Vladimir Putin plans a nuclear attack in Europe.
Satellite images shows that Putin has gradually been increasing his strategic bombers at the Olenya airbase and there are seven Tu-160 bombers along with four Tu-95 jets on the Kola Peninsula.
There has been an “unusual deployment” of seven nuclear bombers at the airbase and there has been raised concerns over the build up above the Arctic Circle.
