US President Biden: For the first time since the Caribbean crisis, the world is under threat of nuclear war
MOSCOW, October 7 – RIA Novosti. US President Joe Biden has said the world is facing a nuclear war for the first time since the Cold War and the Caribbean crisis, according to the White House pool.
“Since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, we have not faced the prospect of (nuclear) Armageddon,” the US leader said at a Democratic party event in New York.
Biden blamed the Russian leadership for the rise. According to him, President Vladimir Putin “is not joking when he threatens to use nuclear weapons.”
In September, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a speech to the Russians that the West’s anti-Russian policy has crossed every line and its constant threats against Russia. According to him, the West used nuclear blackmail, weapons of mass destruction against Moscow. He reminded the West that Russia was outperforming foreign military equipment in some components, and warned that those trying to blackmail with nuclear weapons could turn the weather vane in their favor.

According to the documents, this is possible in cases where the existence of the state is threatened in the event of an attack on Russia or its allies with the use of weapons of mass destruction or the use of conventional weapons.
As Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has already pointed out, there has been no change in Russia’s approach to the possible use of nuclear weapons, everything is in the vein determined by Russia’s military doctrine and the fundamentals of state policy in Russia. nuclear deterrence field
