Russia Warns U.S. Against 'Decapitation Strike' on Putin Amid Ukraine War
Sen. Lindsey Graham has called on Putin's assassination
Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s top diplomat, warned the U.S. to tone down its rhetoric against the Kremlin, including an unnamed U.S. official who talked about a “decapitation strike” against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He said the comments are “essentially a threat to physically remove the Russian head of state,” The Moscow Times reported. He warned of “consequences” if such an attack was carried out.

The report noted that Lavrov was likely referring to comments made in September to Newsweek magazine. The official told the outlet that a special operation “to kill Putin in the heart of the Kremlin” had been “front and center” among the options being considered in Washington in response to Putin’s nuclear rhetoric.

“It is no secret to anyone that the strategic goal of the United States and its NATO allies is to defeat Russia on the battlefield as a mechanism for significantly weakening or even destroying our country,” Lavrov said.
Kennette Benedict, an advisor to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists who led the report for the Global Challenges Foundation, said the risk of nuclear war has surpassed the height of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, according to AntiWar.com.
Benedict’s report warned that an all-out nuclear exchange would essentially end life on Earth and “send enough dust in the air to block sunlight resulting in ‘a period of chaos and violence, during which most of the surviving world population would die from hunger.’”
In October, President Joe Biden was at a Democratic fundraiser in New York when he told the audience that the risk of nuclear Armageddon is at its highest point since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Biden was introduced by James Murdoch, the son of Rupert, and said he cannot imagine Russia using a tactile nuclear weapon without leading the nuclear Armageddon. He said Vladimir Putin, his Russian counterpart, “is not joking when he talks about the use of tactical nuclear weapons.”
“I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily (use) a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon,” Biden said, according to a pool reporter.
He said his administration is trying to figure out: What is Putin’s off ramp?
“Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself where he does not only lose face but significant power?” he said.
Biden’s comments came shortly after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for the West to take “preventive action” to stop Moscow from using tactical nukes.
A senior administration official told the Associated Press that Biden has been trying to warn Americans about the dangerous possibility of Putin using tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the news outlet that there is concern in Washington that Moscow believes it can use these weapons in a way that will result in only a limited reaction from the U.S.
TRENDPOST: Ever since our 22 February issue, The Trends Journal has said the world is going to go from the COVID War, to the Ukraine War, to WWIII. Totally absent is any discussion of a peaceful settlement, and shortsighted politicians in the U.S. are pushing for more conflict with the hopes of damaging Russia so it is no longer a threat. (See “EU HEADS PROMISE TO KEEP UKRAINE WAR GOING” 21 Jun 2022, “RUSSIA WINNING UKRAINE WAR, STILL NO TALK OF PEACE FROM ZELENSKY” 9 Aug 2022 and “LAVROV: U.S. IS ‘ON BRINK’ OF BEING INVOLVED IN UKRAINE CONFLICT” 27 Sep 2022.)
We have noted that the longer the war in Ukraine drags on the more people will die, the more infrastructure will be badly damaged, and the closer the world inches to fighting WWIII.
Ukraine’s position has been that they will make no concessions and they will take back every inch of ground taken over by Russian forces. Any mention of concessions has been swiftly rebuffed by Kyiv.
t’s Lindsay Graham and his cohorts that need to be taken out.
They are the ones along with Soros, McClain, and the wonderful darlings at the CIA that ran the coup that overthrew the previous Ukraine government and put in that fag-boy clown boy as their puppet so they could run billions of dollars through them, giving clown boy about 10%, and making sure every other dollar came right back into their criminal bank accounts.
This country is run by criminals and they hate their citizens.
I’m so disgusted by it all.
Lindsay Graham should take his own recommendations. Live by war, die by war. Go to the front line with a gun and fight you coward
