Russia Not Threatening Anyone with Nuclear War Says Lavrov
April 30, 2022 (EIRNS)—Russia is not threatening anyone with nuclear war. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, it is the West, along with Ukraine, which flirts with the rhetoric of “nuclear war.”
“We never play with concepts this dangerous. Never. We must all be committed to the statements of the ‘nuclear five’—a nuclear war can never be triggered,” Lavrov stressed in an April 29 interview with Al Arabiya. He noted that it was Russia that had repeatedly pushed for the adoption of statements on behalf of all nuclear countries confirming commitments to no first-use of nuclear weapons.
