‘We didn’t threaten anyone with a nuclear attack’, a day later Russia recanted its statement



Strong points

Some senior Russian leaders have threatened a nuclear attack on Ukraine
Moscow does not threaten to attack with nuclear weapons in any way
The use of nuclear weapons is only possible in self-defence in response to an attack and only in an emergency

Moscow: Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday that Moscow was under no circumstances threatening to strike with a nuclear weapon. In fact, some senior Russian leaders had threatened a nuclear attack on Ukraine. However, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has denied the use of nuclear weapons from the start. He said that the possibility of using nuclear weapons in Ukraine is a conspiracy against Russia. The ministry also said Russia was not interested in a direct confrontation with NATO and the United States.
President Putim said he was not deceiving anyone in any way. If Russia is threatened from anywhere, it will only use its own nuclear weapons in emergency situations. Russia has the ability to use nuclear weapons. Russian military doctrine only authorizes a nuclear reaction in response to a threat of mass destruction or when the existence of the state is threatened. In other words, the use of nuclear weapons is only possible in self-defence as part of a response to an attack and only in an emergency.
