NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg
Russia is facing serious consequences due to a possible nuclear strike, and Moscow knows about it, Stoltenberg said.
Russia is aware of the “grave consequences” that will come if it uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with CNN.
“They (Russia) know that there will be dire consequences. I won’t elaborate on exactly how we will respond. It will depend on what kind of weapons of mass destruction they can use,” he explained.
According to him, such statements by Western officials are aimed at preventing the possible use of nuclear weapons by Russia.
“The fact is that the likelihood of any use of nuclear weapons is still low, but the potential consequences of this are so great that we, accordingly, must take this[threats from the Russian Federation]seriously. And the rhetoric, the threats that Putin again and again put forward, increase tension, they are dangerous and thoughtless,” Stoltenberg stressed.
Recall that The Washington Post reported, citing its sources: the White House warned the Kremlin in private about the consequences of the use of nuclear weapons.
In addition, Stoltenberg previously stated that the Russian Federation would not win a nuclear war.
