Russia warns again that risks of nuclear confrontation with US are growing

Vladimir Yermakov is the head of the Russian foreign ministry’s nuclear non-proliferation department. He told the Russian news agency, that Washington was escalating risks by its behavior with Moscow.

Since its start invading Ukraine, Moscow has regularly issued charges against the US and “the collective West”, for raising nuclear war risks, to deter Kyiv’s allies.

“If the United States continue to pursue its current course of confrontation against Russia, with stakes continually escalating and on the brink of sliding into a direct armed conflict then the fate START (nuclear weapons treaty) could be a foregone outcome,” Yermakov stated.

In March, the US informed Russia that it would stop exchanging data about its nuclear weapons following Moscow’s refusal. It called it a reaction to Russia’s suspension of participation in New START.


Yermakov has not provided details about the alleged US aggressive approach in the excerpts of the TASS interview that have been published to date.

“The greatest threat is the nuclear escalation that could result from a direct conflict between nuclear powers,” Yermakov stated.


The risks are increasing, and this is a deep regret.

Moscow and Beijing will evaluate the West’s possible involvement in the global extension of the US antimissile system which “clearly undermines the strategic stability”, added he.
