The television sequence blamed the West for too much talk of nuclear war, when it's Putin's acolytes and propagandistsâplus the Kremlin leader himselfâwho are constantly floating the threat of atomic apocalypse, according to the Daily Mail.
Vasily Kashin, a military and political analyst at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, told the audience that in the current conflict, the West has superiority in resources and conventional weaponry. "We're in a situation in which superiority in resources and conventional weaponry is on the side of the West."
