For several months, the United States warned Moscow about the serious consequences in the event of the use of nuclear weapons.
Appropriate warning messages the Kremlin were received in a private format.
About this writes The Washington Post.
According to the newspaper, Washington deliberately sent a warning in a vague format, so the Kremlin is worried about how the US can react to such a move.
The US State Department was involved in sending the messages, but officials did not disclose their content or who delivered them.
Currently, it is not known whether the USA sent new personal messages to the leadership of the Russian Federation after President Vladimir Putin’s speech on September 21, when he again made a veiled threat of nuclear weapons.
The publication notes that for many years, American nuclear experts have worried that the Russian Federation may use smaller tactical nuclear weapons, sometimes called “battlefield nuclear weapons.” At the same time, the transfer of such weapons to the Russian Federation has not been recorded.
