Putin issues chilling warning on rising nuclear war threat

Putin issues chilling warning on rising nuclear war threat”

The fate of another non-proliferation treaty is under question, the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), which expires in 2021 and no negotiations have yet been conducted on its extension, he said. "There is a trend of lowering the threshold" of using nuclear weapons, Putin said.

Putin also noted that the United States appears to show little interest in extending the New START nuclear arms reduction treaty, which expires in 2021.

Peskov was asked to comment on Russian President Vladimir Putin's statement about the possibility of a nuclear war following the U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, TASS reported.

Russia is developing new weapons to keep strategic balance and defend its security in the face of a collapse of the global arms deterrence system, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

"And when we begin to soberly but pointedly speak about their policy [Russia], they shout that we are starting a cold war".

The United States delivered Russian Federation a 60-day ultimatum earlier this month to come clean about what Washington says is a violation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty between Moscow and Washington.

Putin also emphasised that the U.S. is pondering the use of ballistic missiles with conventional warheads, saying that the launch of such a missile could be mistaken for the launch of a nuclear-tipped one and trigger a global catastrophe.

"If, God forbid, [nuclear war] were to happen, it would lead to the end of all civilization and maybe also the planet", he said. "You aren't interested, you don't need it?" Trump said the USA has won against the terrorist group.

Trump on Tuesday threatened to let that happen if the Democrats do not agree to provide funding for a southern border wall. Opponents say the wall is not only a waste of money but has been used by the president to whip up xenophobia.

Amid a litany of complaints over Washington's policies, Putin had one positive thing to say about the United States: He welcomed Trump's decision to withdraw the USA military from Syria.

Others like British conservative and defense minister Tobias Ellwood disagree that US forces should leave Syria, where terrorism and civil war have endured for years.

Putin showed no sign of backing down from Russia's stance on Ukraine.

"You can predict new attacks on the president with 100-per cent probability", Putin said.
