The US has postponed its nuclear missile test amid tensions with Russia over Ukraine. In a statement issued by the Pentagon, it has been said that this has been done to avoid any misunderstanding. The American was about to launch the Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile this week.
Russia has put its nuclear force on high alert
Let us tell you that Russia has put its nuclear force on high alert at this time. If any missile is fired from America, then it can misunderstand Russia. Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said the decision to delay the test of the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile was made by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. He said that the US is doing this to take down Moscow’s position in the crisis in Ukraine, and it does not want to take any provocative action from its side.
We have weapons to protect the motherland
Kirby said the US did not put its nuclear forces on high alert in response to Putin’s move, which the spokesman called dangerous and unnecessary. Austin is “comfortable that the strategic deterrence posture we have in place is dependent on protecting the homeland and our allies.”
The United States typically conducts about four test launches of Minuteman III missiles per year. Let us tell you that the whole world is under tension due to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. The war between the two countries has been going on for almost a week. Hundreds of soldiers have died. There are explosions everywhere.
