LONDON, October 31. /TASS/. UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly on Monday warned that any use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine would change the nature of the conflict and bring about severe consequences for Moscow.
"No other country is talking about nuclear use. No country is threatening Russia or President [of Russia Vladimir] Putin. He should be clear that for the UK and our allies, any use at all of nuclear weapons would change the nature of the conflict. There would be severe consequences for Russia," he said in the House of Commons.
Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier that Western leaders practice nuclear rhetoric every day and said Russia doesn’t want to be part of that rhetorical practice. Peskov also said Moscow could use nuclear weapons only in compliance with its nuclear doctrine.
