Sources in Brussels: Borrell had no right to threaten Russia with the destruction of its army

The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said the day before that Moscow would receive a tough military response from the European Union, the United States and NATO to the use of nuclear weapons and the Russian army would be destroyed.

At the same time, Borrell mentioned that in the event that the Russian Federation uses weapons of mass destruction, the response of the West will not be nuclear, but very tough.

However, he had no legal right to make such a statement. This opinion was expressed by The Wall Street Journal journalist Lawrence Norman, citing a senior EU official. In addition, the words of the diplomat do not reflect the official point of view of Brussels.

He, without having the authority to do so, spoke about options for which he is not responsible, through the possibilities that he does not have. We are left wondering

- emphasized the official, whose words were quoted by Norman.

Josep Borrell thus responded to Vladimir Putin, who had previously stressed that Russia was determined to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity by any means. According to Borrell, European countries are also "not bluffing" when warning about the consequences of the Kremlin's actions.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron noted that Paris would not use nuclear weapons if Russia uses them during a Ukrainian special operation, since such a thing is not provided for by France's nuclear doctrine.

      You probably did not think about the fulfillment of contractual obligations, and about penalties and loss of business reputation, too. CBO will ever end and you will have to trade again,

    Well, where is Zakharova with an answer to Borel, a senile senile Russophobe? for every bark of high-ranking Western bureaucrats, you must immediately respond and remind the old people that, for example, the Russian Federation can burn all of Spain with just one ICBM Voevoda

    NATO will not fight Russia on territory that does not belong to it. There are other rules "to live well, but to live well is better." But the disposal of old weapons will be carried out with great joy, since there are a lot of landfills, for example, Ukraine, Turkey, Greece, Azerbaijan, Armenia, etc.

    Who is a journalist and who is the head of European diplomacy. Whose word is more powerful?
    Europe must be destroyed by nuclear weapons. It's my opinion.
