What would it take to force Russia's hand in declaring war on the USA?

It's common belief that if the US and Russia don't want to go to war because even though the US would win more times then not it would all come to down using nukes where nobody would win.

Can you give me situation in which Russia has no choice but to declare war against the US even if they don't want to?

    Putin is an autocrat. Nobody can force him to do something he doesn't want to do. I think if we nuked Russia, he might have to declare war and fight back. Short of something like that, he wouldn't.

    But it's been suggested that WW3 will be a cyber war. Russia or China could use computer hacking to freeze our financial/banking system, to shut down the power grid or our air traffic control system, or even the Internet. That would be a lot easier for Putin to start, since we probably wouldn't answer with nukes or an invasion.

    Perhaps with endless sanctions and international pressure.

    They already did. Interfering in US election. They figured we were not prepared for a cyber war.
