If Russia were to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, would there be any health issues for Russian soldiers on the ground?
When I put this question to a European researcher well-versed in the Russian military's state of affairs, he said, "There would be no problem. Since the time of the Soviet Union, Russia has prepared for a nuclear war."
"If Russia used low-yield nuclear weapons, Russian soldiers would be safe as long as they stay inside armored vehicles equipped with filters that can remove radioactive materials. That is what Russian soldiers are taught," he said.
