Spectrum News 1 interviewed Dr. Steven Miner for a Feb. 24 report headlined Ohio University history professor speaks on Putin’s motives: ‘He’s obviously threatening the use of nuclear weapons.’

Miner is professor of History in the College of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Contemporary History Institute. Minor interpreted Putin’s statements several days before Russian President Vladimir Putin announced he was raising the alert status for his nuclear forces.

“Well, he’s obviously threatening the use of nuclear weapons and also his new generation of hypersonic missiles that he’s made a great deal about,” Miner said. “He’s saying leave us alone or if you don’t, will resort to the nuclear option. He’s threatening the United States’ homeland. He said you’ll have consequences you’ve never experienced in your history, in your country’s history.”
