Russian President Putin’s top secret “nuclear briefcase”, which could trigger World War III, has been seen for the first time. The briefcase, called Cheget in Russian, was developed in the early 1980s and has now been shown to the public for the first time, with it being opened and its contents viewed up close on TV.
TV presenter Alexei Yegorov explained：“One of the briefcase’s components is a flash card. It is individual, and it is one of the keys that is entered into the system.”
Observers say the most unusual aspect of the briefcase is that the launch button is actually white and not red as is commonly thought.
It is believed that there are three nuclear briefcases in total, which are accessible only by the three most highly-ranked officials in the Russian Federation. Those Russian officials are Mr Putin, Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu and Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Valeriy Gerasimov.
