There's a fool born every minutelThe US isn't his enemy either. It is democracy on his front door. Putin wants total control over Russia and it will be hard to stop the inmateat bay in Russia if they see a free and democratic Ukraine thriving next door. Hence Putin's attempts to subjugate Ukraine into once again being a Russian puppet state. Unfortunately for Putin Ukraine is just too big of a nation to control and pretty much the entire democratic world are pushing back against his fascist Ukraine ideology.
Putin's already admitted publicly that Russia only fire nukes if fired upon. And in any case, if he were to let off a nuke south west Russia and his puppet mate Lukashenko likely bear the brunt of radioactive fallout. That scenario would be enough to turn Belarus against Russia which would be a complete disaster for Putin.
Make no mistake this is also very much a Ukraine-Russia conflict. There is a long history of Russian oppression / hegemony of Ukranian culture / nationality. This is just the modern version of it. Ukraine wants to be a democracy with free trade / ties to Europe. Russia wants Ukraine as a puppet state and pretty much back in a USSR era mentality. Ultimately this is what it comes down to.
