Russia again indicates that it does not rule out nuclear attack on Ukraine

Russia has issued mixed messages on the subject. On the 6th, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Moscow will not use nuclear weapons against Ukraine.

Last month, however, Sergei Lavrov, the head of the ministry, said in an interview that the danger of a nuclear escalation of the conflict was “serious and real” and should not be underestimated.

U.S. Central Intelligence Agency director William Burns said on Saturday that he sees no practical evidence at this point of Russian planning for the deployment or use of tactical nuclear weapons, but warned the West cannot ignore the risk, as Putin has staked very high on Ukraine and will not afford to lose the war.
