MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian president Vladimir Putin said Russia is not ready yet to give up nuclear weapons unilaterally, underscoring his confidence however that humanity will have to give up nukes sooner or later.
Putin, who made the remarks during his meeting with students of the Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute on Wednesday said that at present, many countries have nuclear weapons and that they have no intention of renouncing them as yet.
"Making this move in the present conditions would be extremely odd for Russia, I wish to underline that in the present conditions it would result in significant and grave consequences for our country and our people," the president said.
He noted that developing the nuclear complex, including the maintenance of nuclear triad, was one of the key guidelines of Russia's defense policy.
"My personal position is that humanity will have to give up nuclear weapons sooner or later, but it has still a long way to go," Putin said.
