According to Russian diplomacy, the country’s intentions are very clear: ” They are purely defensive in nature and do not allow for broad interpretation“, the use of nuclear weapons is permitted only in response to aggression by means of weapons of mass destruction or conventional weapons.

Russia considers existing agreements and understandings to be “more relevant” on reducing and limiting nuclear weapons, reducing strategic risks and the threat of international incidents and conflicts. ” Other nuclear powers have effectively demonstrated their readiness to work on this priority task«.
