The risk of Russian use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine is small, but NATO takes it very seriously. This was announced on Saturday, November 5, by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
“The consequences will be huge, so we take this very seriously. Russia is behaving irresponsibly and recklessly,” – said he is in an interview with the Turkish television channel NTV. According to Stoltenberg, Moscow’s nuclear position has not changed.
Russian Foreign Ministry November 2 issued a statement on the prevention of nuclear war. Moscow called on the countries of the “nuclear five” to demonstrate their readiness to abandon the encouragement of provocations with weapons of mass destruction. It states that the Russian Federation is guided by the postulate of the inadmissibility of nuclear war. The department stressed that in the current “turbulent situation” it is necessary to avoid a clash of nuclear powers.
In addition, the President of the Russian Federation also earlier said that Moscow is using the thesis about the possibility of using nuclear weapons to negatively influence the countries friendly to Russia.
