At the same time, the reaction of the NATO countries will depend on what kind of weapons of mass destruction the Russians can use.

Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), says Russia is aware of the dire consequences if nuclear weapons are used.

Stoltenberg said this in an interview with CNN.

“They know that there will be dire consequences. I will not specify how we will respond. It depends on what kind of weapons of mass destruction they may use. We are sending these messages, and we are clearly stating to make it impossible for such events to develop,” Stoltenberg stressed.

At the same time, he expressed his conviction that “the probability of the use of nuclear weapons is low, but the potential consequences are so great that for this reason we must take it seriously.”

“And the rhetoric, the threats that President Putin makes over and over again increase tension and are dangerous and reckless,” Stoltenberg said.

Russian nuclear blackmail

On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking of nuclear weapons, said that he would use all available means in the event of an alleged threat to the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.

In his emergency speech on the announcement of partial mobilization in the Russian Federation, he made the following cynical statement: “Everyone who tries to blackmail us in this way should know that the wind rose can turn in their direction.”

At the same time, Ukrainian military experts believe that such statements by the Russian Federation are nothing more than nuclear blackmail aimed at bringing Ukraine to the negotiating table and forcing it to agree to the Kremlin’s terms.

On September 22, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not believe Putin was using nuclear weapons.
