NATO is closely monitoring the actions of the Kremlin.
Secretary General NATO Jens Stoltenberg expressed the opinion that the risk of using nuclear weapons by the aggressor Russia is small. However, he insists, the Kremlin’s “nuclear rhetoric” is irresponsible and dangerous.
Stoltenberg said this in an interview with a German publication Welt.
“The risk of using nuclear weapons is small. But Russian nuclear rhetoric is absolutely irresponsible and dangerous Russia should know that a nuclear war cannot be won, and therefore it cannot be waged,” said the Secretary General.
According to him, NATO is closely monitoring the actions of the Kremlin. Currently not observed no changes in Russian nuclear forces.
“If it were so, we would of course react. But even if we allow Russia to blackmail us with this rhetoric, the world will become more dangerous. Then Russia will invent this nuclear threat when it wants to achieve something,” he said Jens Stoltenberg.
We will remind, the deputy head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense Vadym Skibitsky said that carriers of nuclear weapons are currently in Russian-occupied Crimea. This is a tactical nuclear weapon, which was manufactured even under the Soviet Union.
