The Russian embassy called the statement of US Senator Roger Wicker about the possible use of nuclear weapons against Russia due to the tense situation around Ukraine as ill-considered and irresponsible.
It is clarified that Wicker earlier in an interview with Fox News said that he had advised Joe Biden in case of aggravation of the situation not to exclude the possibility of a preemptive nuclear strike on Russian territory.
“We believe that such statements are irresponsible. In the statement of the presidents of Russia and the United States of June 16, 2021, it is indicated that both countries adhere to the principles according to which there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never start, “the department noted.
The Russian Embassy added that the American politician, who held such a high post, “should not be joking like that.”
