A senior strategist in Moscow says that the best way for Russia to resolve the growing dispute with the West will be to completely annihilate the United States. And he believes that detonating nuclear weapons on the Yellowstone National Park or along the San Andreas fault line would lead to a “complete destruction of the enemy.”
Russia should attack the U.S. vulnerabilities
Konstantin Sivkov, the President of the Moscow-based Academy of Geopolitical Problems, said in a column in the Russian-language newspaper VPK News that the West was moving aggressively “to the borders of Russia.” Sivkov said Russia should increase up its military weapons and strategies to counter the U.S. and its European allies.
Has including ESG become a necessity for investors?
ESG (environmental, social, governance) has become a hot topic in recent years, especially lately with the debate over whether pension funds should be able to factor in ESG when choosing investments.

He said NATO was gaining strength against Russia. And the only way to tackle the problem was to attack the United States’ vulnerabilities. Geologists say that the supervolcano in Yellowstone could explode at any moment. Researchers have already monitored the signs of growing activity there. Therefore, even a small nuclear attack on Yellowstone should be enough to initiate an eruption.
The consequences of Yellowstone supervolcano eruption will be catastrophic. The United States “just disappears,” said Sivkov. Another vulnerable area is the San Andreas fault line between San Francisco and San Diego, which could be the source of a massive earthquake. Sivkov said a nuclear attack along the San Andreas could trigger catastrophic events such as a coast-scale tsunami, destroying the infrastructure of America.
Today, Russia cannot compete against NATO
He said Russia’s distance from the U.S. would protect it from a volcano or tsunami in the United States. In Russia, few people live on the coast. And Siberia can withstand such attacks as it rests on basalt, he added. The strategist said that the situation for Moscow today is “completely worse than half a century ago.” At this point, Moscow cannot compete against the NATO because of Russia’s weakened economic potential, and the lack of large-scale community allies in Europe. In December last year, Sivkov said the United States’ ultimate goal was to destroy Russia.
