According to defense analyst Konrad Muzyka, the train is connected to Russia’s Glavnoye Upravleniye Ministerstvo Oborony – also known as the Defense Ministry’s 12th Main Directorate – which operates a dozen central weapons storage facilities. nuclear.

“This ‘other train with military equipment’ is actually carrying equipment belonging to the 12th Main Directorate of the Russian Defense Ministry,” Muzyka said.

“The directorate is responsible for nuclear munitions, their storage, maintenance, transportation and distribution to units.”

While the expert said the video in no way shows “preparations for a nuclear release”, he explained that the footage comes after Ukraine warned that the risk of Russia using a tactical nuclear weapon was “very high”.

“It could be a form of signal to the West that Moscow is stepping up,” Muzyka said, referring to Vladimir Putin’s nuclear war warning on Friday.

Muzyka also suggested Russia could move the equipment ahead of training exercises for its Strategic Rocket Forces (RSVN) – the country’s main nuclear deterrent unit that is part of Russian and Soviet nuclear forces.

“Russian RVSN forces usually train intensively during the fall,” Muzuka said, adding that Moscow may also move this equipment in preparation for its strategic exercise of nuclear forces.

“Russia could conduct a strategic deterrence exercise Grom in October, so this train could show readiness for that exercise,” Muzyka said, referring to Russia’s annual large-scale maneuvers of its known strategic nuclear forces (SNFs). under the name of Grom, or thunder. .

The Saturday withdrawal of Russian forces from the key town of Lyman, which had served as a logistics and transport hub for Kremlin operations in the northern Donetsk region, was an embarrassment for Moscow.

Russia admitted that its troops had abandoned their stronghold of Lyman to avoid being surrounded by the Ukrainian army.

But after the major new defeat, Ramzan Kadyrov, head of Russia’s Chechen region, said Moscow should now consider using a low-yield nuclear weapon in Ukraine.

In a chilling message, he wrote: “In my opinion, more drastic measures should be taken, up to the declaration of martial law in the border areas and the use of low-yield nuclear weapons.

Russia has the largest atomic arsenal in the world, including low-yield tactical nuclear weapons designed for deployment against opposing armies.

Other Putin allies, including former President Dmitry Medvedev, have suggested that Russia may need to resort to nuclear weapons – but Kadyrov’s call was the most urgent and explicit.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Putin’s propaganda TV channel aired a terrifying segment “in anticipation of a nuclear conflict.”

The disturbing footage, which was carried by pro-Kremlin broadcaster NTV, showed nuclear explosions and the “Armageddon” aftermath of the blasts.

NTV is owned by the media wing of energy giant Gazprom, which last month released a video of Europe ‘freezed to death’ without Russian gas in a bid to taunt the West.

The chilling final segment was titled “In anticipation of nuclear conflict – how weapons of mass destruction became part of the geopolitical game”.
