A foreign policy expert and former aide to Margaret Thatcher has warned Vladimir Putin that if launches nuclear weapons on the West it “would be the end of Russia.”

Putin’s back is against the wall as his forces have suffered defeat in Ukraine and he has lost more soldiers in 81 days than he did in 10-years during the Afghan war.

Putin is told by key ally that using nukes in Ukraine is ‘unacceptable’ as the Kremlin warns the risk of nuclear war ‘is considerable’

Vladimir Putin ‘will soon have no way back’ but to ‘unleash’ nuclear weapons which will ‘be fast and cheaper for Russia’

Putin is very desperate and there are real fears that he is plotting revenge and he could launch nuclear weapons to win the war in Ukraine.

Thatcher’s former aide Nile Gardiner told the Express.co.uk, “The reality is the use of nuclear weapons by Russia would be the end of Russia, and they know that.

“This has been the state of affairs since World War Two, and every Russian leader since then understands Russia making the first move with a nuclear strike would be the end of Russia.

“Even the UK on its own has the ability to cripple Russia with its nuclear arsenal, let alone what the US has at its disposal.

“In fact, just defence from the UK alone if the Russians strike Britain would mean the end of Russia.”

He added, “Putin is a very angry man these days, always thinking about revenge and all sorts of things.

“He remains dangerous, as he always will be, so we have to be on our guard.

“We should never underestimate Putin and what he is capable of.

“He’s like a snake thrashing around in a bag, and snakes still bite.”

He continued, “But at the same time the Russian rhetoric about the use of nuclear weapons is overwhelmingly intended to intimidate.

“It is intended the divide NATO and threaten countries intending to join that defence alliance.

“This is just classic Russian propaganda we are seeing here, where they are making all kinds of threats and are trying to divide the Western alliance.

“Russia has a lot of nuclear weapons and they are always prepared to use them as part of their nuclear posture, and that should be no surprise.

“It is also part of their psychological warfare campaign that is designed to put the fear of God into Western countries.”
