"From July 1, 2022, in order to strengthen the defense capability of our state, regular shifts of the Main Geophysical Monitoring Center have started round-the-clock duty," the message says.

- The Russian authorities and Russian propagandists began to actively threaten the world with nuclear strikes after the invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine and the strengthening of sanctions. The Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) indicated that the risk of using nuclear weapons in the world has reached its highest level since the Cold War.
- In June, the Secretary General of NATO stated that the Alliance has not yet recorded the increased readiness of Russiaʼs nuclear forces. At the same time, in the new strategy for the next 10 years, NATO left the nuclear forces of the Alliance as the guarantor of the alliesʼ security.
