Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told PBS “no one is thinking about… using a nuclear weapon,” and that the Ukrainian conflict has nothing to do with any threat to Russia’s existence. Peskov clarified, “We have a security concept that very clearly states that only when there is a threat for existence of the state in our country… we will actually use nuclear weapons…” Peskov said Putin’s comments about Russia’s nuclear capabilities was “warning different states not to interfere in the affairs between Ukraine and Russia.”
