The United States - on nuclear threats: Reckless and irresponsible

Jul 31, 2023

The White House on Monday commented on Sunday's statement by Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev, in which he once again threatened to use nuclear weapons.

CNN reported that a spokesman made the comment for the White House National Security Council.


The U.S. representative called Medvedev's rhetoric "reckless and irresponsible," emphasizing that Washington has not seen any signs of Russia preparing a nuclear strike.

"The use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine or anywhere else would be catastrophic for the world and would have serious consequences for Russia," the spokesman added.

He emphasized that the United States continues to monitor the nuclear threat from Russia closely, but currently sees no reason to adjust its nuclear policy.
