Swiss Military Figure Warns of a 'Chicken Game at the Edge of Nuclear War'

Lt. Col. (ret.) Ralph Bosshard

Regarding the missile/drone attack on Russia’s over-the-horizon early warning radar at Armavir, Lt. Col. (ret.) Ralph Bosshard, Swiss Armed Forces, provided this assessment (translated from German):

“The attack on the Russian early warning system can hardly be interpreted by the Russian leadership in any other way than as an attempt to partially blind Russia against an attack on its territory by nuclear ballistic missiles. This will be viewed as a further trial run for a surprise nuclear first strike against Russia, and could force the Russian leadership to take counterstrike measures even in case of an unclear overview of the situation. This will also affect the Middle East situation, where Iran may find itself in a similar situation facing a potential joint attack by the United States and Israel.
