Putin has threatened “nuclear deterrence” on any country that interferes in his war campaign against the former Soviet Republic state of Ukraine.

Is it possible that nuclear war is not so far away after all?

To some, this may sound ridiculous — a preposterous concept — but it’s worth exploring. Considering the recent events, it becomes even more conceivable.

  • Russia continues to launch attacks on civilians in Ukraine as Putin’s military might slaughters innocent people
  • Billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk, donated Starlink satellite systems to help Ukraine restore its Internet and communicate with the world
  • Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has called on NATO and the United States to get involved
  • The Kremlin is recruiting a wave of hardened Syrian fighters to wage war in Ukraine, thanks to Russia and Syria sharing close ties

With the current conflict in Ukraine, where is the world headed?

In this essay, we’ll look at one likely scenario and what it might mean for the former Soviet Republic state, the United States, and all of humanity. We’ll start with how things could escalate from here to there.

First comes World War III.

The danger here is that things could escalate quickly. Spiraling out of control.

All it takes is one wrong move. Then, like that, we have a full-scale nuclear war. With Russia and their 6,000 nuke arsenal at the center.

World War III — Nuclear Armageddon

Here’s a look at how a nuclear doomsday scenario could play out.

First, the Russia-Ukraine War spreads to other countries, as Russia tries to shore up allies. The world’s largest producer of consumer goods, China, patiently sits on the sidelines with its military might.
