ISW called the condition under which Putin will use nuclear weapons against Ukraine

In 2023, Russian President Vladimir Putin will continue to fight against Ukraine without the use of any fundamentally new types of weapons, including nuclear. This is reported by the American Institute for the Study of War.

Analysts believe that the Russian dictator does not give up hope to achieve his maximalist goals in Ukraine through conventional military means, which he pursues in parallel with efforts to break the will of Ukraine to fight and the will of the West continue to support Kyiv.

The ISW is convinced that Putin is unlikely to escalate the war with the use of tactical nuclear weapons. The exception would be a sudden collapse of Russian troops, allowing Ukrainian defenders to make an uncontrolled advance across the theater of operations.

At the same time, a scenario was called unlikely in which Putin would seek direct military conflict with NATO. Experts note that the President of the Russian Federation will most likely continue to hint at the possibility of using nuclear weapons and attacking NATO, but this will be «part of his efforts to break the will of the West to continue supporting Ukraine».
