Russia suspects the West of planning limited nuclear wars

MOSCOW, (BM) – The West does not confirm whether nuclear war’s inadmissibility raises suspicions whether they are planning limited nuclear wars, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said, has learned, citing Vzglyad.

Ryabkov noted that Washington continues to speak and even speak publicly with destabilizing concepts that allow nuclear weapons in armed conflict.

“We categorically reject this concept of limited nuclear war. We strongly disagree with the attempts to attribute some ideas to us in the escalation spirit for de-escalation. We believe those who are engaged in this are moving on their own to introduce such ideas in their military planning,” the diplomat stressed, TASS reported.

According to the Deputy Foreign Minister, it would be essential to confirm Gorbachev-Reagan’s Formular that there can be no winners in a nuclear war, and such a war must never unleash it.

“We must support this clear and precise statement collectively today. The world needs such a signal. And the unwillingness of our Western colleagues to agree to this proposal of ours only raises doubts about where their military thought is going and whether they are planning a limited nuclear conflict,” the diplomat concluded.

The diplomat noted that “the lack of readiness of our Western colleagues to agree with our proposal only raises doubts about where their military thought is heading and whether they are planning a limited nuclear conflict,” RIA Novosti reported.

The head of the US Strategic Command, Admiral Charles Richard, announced on February 3 the possibility of a nuclear war with Russia or China, which allegedly began to pursue an aggressive policy, forcibly challenging international norms.

Simultaneously, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said that sane American generals are unlikely to consider a nuclear war with Moscow. Military expert Igor Korotchenko told VZGLYAD that, in theory, nuclear war is possible, although the risk is minimal.
