As Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out, the thought of a nuclear war is continually spinning in the brains of Western politicians rather than in the minds of Russians.
The Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, said in a statement to Russian and international media four days after President Vladimir Putin placed his country’s nuclear deterrent forces on special alert and a week after Moscow launched a brutal war against Ukraine: “It is clear that World War Three can only be nuclear.”
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “the thought of a nuclear war is continually spinning in the brains of Western politicians, but not in the heads of Russians.” In addition, he said, “I guarantee you that we will not allow any provocations to throw us off balance.”
As the world’s most extensive nuclear arsenal and a massive stockpile of ballistic missiles, Moscow is the backbone of the country’s deterrent capabilities against potential adversaries. He went on to say that Russia could not accept what he described as a military threat from Ukraine and that he was confident that Russia was correct in its assessment of the situation in Ukraine.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has denied reports that Moscow is feeling politically isolated, saying that the subject of how Ukraine lives should be decided by its people.
According to reports, the Ukrainian government has accused Russian soldiers of deliberately targeting people throughout the battle, which is currently on its ninth day. According to the Russian foreign minister, the forces have been given specific instructions to employ high-precision weaponry to demolish military infrastructure to achieve victory.
