The United States and its allies are on the verge of an open military confrontation with Russia, which would be “a direct armed conflict between nuclear powers,” Russian diplomacy spokeswoman Maria Zakharova threatened today.
“By provoking the aggravation of the Ukrainian crisis and unleashing a fierce hybrid confrontation with Russia, Washington, and its allies are balancing dangerously on the brink of an open military confrontation with our country, that is, of a direct armed conflict between nuclear powers,” Zakharova said.
In a press release posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry website, the spokeswoman noted that “evidently such a conflict poses the risk of nuclear escalation.”
“However, Japan prefers not to notice such a destabilizing policy of its American sovereign” added Zakharova, whose statement is a direct response to the comments of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida that there is a real danger of Russia’s use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine.
