Washington and London reacted to Putin's words about nuclear weapons

A number of Western countries reacted to Vladimir Putin's words about their readiness to defend the sovereignty of the Russian Federation by any means, including with the help of nuclear weapons.

Thus, the United States took seriously the words of the Russian leader that if NATO uses such powerful weapons against Russian territory, "the wind rose can turn in their direction." At the same time, the White House believes that such belligerent passages are irresponsible for a nuclear-armed power. The use of such weapons by Moscow will make the Russian Federation a "world outcast".

We take it seriously. As far as we can, we monitor their strategic configuration in order to adjust ours if necessary. Right now we don't see any indication that this is required.

- said John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the White House National Security Council, in an interview with reporters from the ABC television channel.

Meanwhile, London commented on the words of the Russian leader that the West is constantly threatening Russia, as well as Moscow's readiness to defend its territory by all means.

We have never threatened the Russian Federation, we have never tried to encroach on its territorial integrity, but we will continue to support Ukraine

- said the head of the British Foreign Office, James Cleverley (RIA quote News).

    I would start in London. Carpet bombing by nuclear... All over the UK. So that nothing is left there at all - not from evil, the memory of the ancestors, however.

    We have never threatened the Russian Federation, we have never tried to encroach on its territorial integrity

    well, well ... either they shout everywhere "that the Russian Federation must win on the battlefield", then "a country challenging democracy and it must be stopped", then "it owns subsoil that does not correspond to the population and therefore it must be shared /"...

    I agree with the commentators that it's time to "gasp". Slowing down will not improve the situation.

    If the NATO countries and its leadership are not completely stupid, and it is not stupid because they forced Russia to launch an operation in Ukraine, as a result we kill each other and destroy what we ourselves built, then short and medium-range missiles with nuclear weapons are already in Ukraine. Putin talks about the use of nuclear weapons by us, but he may not even have time to open the nuclear suitcase before he arrives at it. Conclusion. We need to hit first now. We do not have to prove anything to anyone about the aggressiveness of the NATO countries against us, it is enough that we know it. And we know what the risks are. After the attack on us, the entire NATO machine will move to Russia, and these are, first of all, our neighbors. Divisions and corps, but we will have no time for reflection after the destruction of cities. Russia and us will be completely destroyed.
