re Negotiator: Read the statistics posted by Rugoz and others. And stop the wrong propaganda with the 14,000 people killed, to justify the russian invasion.

I guess this is why we can still detect radioactive residuals of the nuclear tests from july 1945 on, in the atmosphere?
Which is why only subterranean nuclear tests have been done for reducing worldwide fallout?
(OT which again is why certain scientific instruments for measurement have to be produced by steel being made before this date (like from sunken ships etc.))
And for those bunker busting strikes tactical nukes have a very low comparative yield, therefore radiation spread is negligible.
Probably ok if you do not live near this point for the next 10,000 years.
Then I take it using depleted uranium for bullets like used by NATO in the middle east and even former Yugoslavia is ok for you? Fine. But not for me.
Russia could employ hundreds of tactical strikes in eastern europe, air-burst and land based, without any significant radiation damage. Indeed, this is why Russia has the largest tactical nuke arsenal (2,000), for exactly that purpose.
Showing off a bit, but first fallout damage is NEVER negligible (even if it does not instantly kill) and second Russia does not have (whatever how much) tactical nukes ("for exactly that purpose"
) to protect the environment
NATO can't win in Ukraine for this reason, and Putin knows it, therefore he will continue until NATO bows out of the conflict.
If Putin only knew anything else than his own ego.
