Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking about the possible use of anyone’s nuclear weapons against Russia, warned that in the event of such a development «we, as martyrs go to Paradise, and they just die.»

In the meeting of the discussion club «Valdai», the President noted that the concept of the Russian Federation on the use of nuclear weapons, no preemptive strike, these types of weapons can only be used for retaliation.

«The aggressor should know that retribution is inevitable that he will be destroyed. And we, the victims of aggression, we, as martyrs go to Paradise, and they just die, because even repent will not have time», — Putin said.

Earlier, Putin said that Moscow could theoretically use nuclear weapons only as a retaliation. He noted that such a decision may be taken if the warning system missile attack not only fix the rockets, but will also provide accurate prediction of the flight path and the fall of warheads on the territory of Russia.

The risks of creating biological weapons

If someone is going to develop biological weapons, such studies will deal and others, said the Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The head of state said that he had heard reports on carrying out genetic research on the territory of Georgia. These developments, Putin said, if they really are, «is very dangerous, and are associated with the latest achievements in the field of genetics».

«Allegedly carried out such experiments on animals already. There in dogs, rats, they cycle fast enough… already there are changes that radically change the original appearance. If so, it poses a great threat. How to fight — you have to understand, everyone should understand that nothing is taken from nowhere and does not disappear. Action equals reaction and Vice versa. So, if someone would develop such measures, must understand that others will do it. Better to sit down and work out common rules in this extremely sensitive area,» he said.
