Putin confirms Russian Federation can use nuclear weapons

Putin confirms Russian Federation can use nuclear weapons”

Despite being a leading critic of US foreign policy, however, the Russian leader said he did not think President Donald Trump himself was behind what he feels are exceedingly poor decisions on the part of the USA government. There are very good guidelines, very good beacons.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said he would press for better ties with Russian Federation as a way to solve numerous world's deep-standing conflicts.

"We are a great power, and no one likes competition", he said.

During the Maidan events in Kiev in 2014, Washington asked Moscow to persuade then-president Viktor Yanukovych not to use the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"Few expected us to act so quickly and so resolutely, not to say daringly", Putin said.

"Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves", he added.

Mr Browder told The Sun the incident in Salisbury should be treated as a "Kremlin hit" in the first instance because Mr Skripal was considered a Russian traitor.

Six football stadiums, selected to host matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer, will be commissioned within 10 days, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko said.

"Our plans for using it (his nuclear arsenal), I am hoping it will never happen, our theoretical plans of using it is a so-called retaliatory, counter strike".

The remarks came under criticism from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as well as the United States, Germany, France, and other Western countries.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Russia would use its nuclear weapon only as a response measure. "This is called a retaliation strike", he said in an interview.

"Yes, this will be a global catastrophe for the world, but as a Russian citizen, as the Russian president, I want to ask a question: who needs the world without Russia?"
