Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, senior fellow at Harvard’s Belfer Center and former senior Central Intelligence Agency operations officer, says the risk that Russia could use a nuclear weapon is “not zero.”

  • Mowatt-Larssen told Government Matters the potential for Putin to use a tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine or against NATO should not be off the table and that Pentagon and White House planners are likely preparing for that possibility.
  • He said Russian intelligence failed to inform Putin about military weaknesses and the resistance of the Ukrainians.
  • He said he thinks oligarchs essentially have “no influence” over Putin’s actions.
