Russia Is At War With NATO And There Is Now Real Chance Conflict Will Turn Nuclear - Kremlin Foreign Minister Warns
Russia has warned that the war with Ukraine might turn nuclear after claiming that NATO has joined forces with Ukraine.
Russia's foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov made the claim while, speaking on Russian state TV last night.
He accused western leaders of risking a third world war by supplying heavy weapons to Ukraine with the goal of 'wearing down the Russian army,' an aim he described as an 'illusion'.
Accusing NATO and its allies of attempting to bully Russia on the international stage, Lavrov said that tensions between east and west are now worse than during the Cuban missile crisis at the height of the Cold War.
Asked about the possibility of a nuclear war, he replied: 'The risks are very significant. I do not want the danger to be artificially inflated [but] it is serious, real. It cannot be underestimated.'
Lavrov said: 'During the Cuban Missile Crisis there were not many "written" rules. But the rules of conduct were clear enough.
'Moscow understood how Washington was behaving. Washington understood how Moscow was behaving. Now there are few rules left.
He added: 'In those years, there was a channel of communication that both leaders trusted. Now there is no such channel. Nobody is trying to create it.'
Lavrov also repeated warnings that shipments of western weapons into Ukraine will be considered legitimate targets by Russia a day after missiles struck the country's train network in an apparent attempt to stop the deliveries.
The move comes in response to calls from Kyiv to provide its armed forces with the means to recapture territory occupied by Russian forces, in the wake of atrocities carried out by Putin's men in places such as Bucha and Irpin.
