In 2017, Russian official media projected how, in an other scenario, the Kremlin might end up controlling US major regions.
Tensions with Russia were not as high at the time as they are now. The US threatened Russia in a television “exercise” and named the targets of the attack.
Russian state television stated that the Pentagon, Camp David, Jim Creek Naval Radio Station in Washington, Fort Ritchie in Maryland, and McClellan Air Force Base in California would be targeted with the new hypersonic nuclear weapons.
The news was broken by Reuters.
However, according to other reports, you should never listen to Russia.
According to a number of experts, war targets have shifted over time. Rather than targeting densely populated cities, strategists believe a nuclear attack will target the enemy’s nuclear forces.
By eliminating the larger threat, the enemy’s counter-attack will be less ferocious.
Massive destruction weapons pose the greatest threat to humanity during times of war.
Targeting has shifted from cities to nuclear stockpiles, and nuclear war-related infrastructure has military value.
If you live in New York or California, intelligence believes you pose no threat to the Kremlin or any other nation.

“It’s extremely unlikely that such an attack would be completely successful,” according to Stephen Schwartz, author of “Atomic Audit: The Costs and Consequences of US Nuclear Weapons Since 1940.”
“There are a plethora of variables involved in pulling off an attack like this flawlessly, and it would have to be flawless. If even a few weapons escape, the stuff you missed will come back to haunt you.”
However, based on military equipment, Schwartz believes Russia has a “0.0 percent chance” of surviving a nuclear attack on the US.
