“Any end of the process (in Ukraine) is not a reason to use nuclear weapons,” Peskov said.
“We have a security concept that only when there is a threat to the existence of a state can nuclear weapons be used and really used in our country to eliminate that threat,” he said.
“No one is thinking about using nuclear weapons,” a Kremlin spokesman said.
Putin’s spokesman on Russia’s use of nuclear weapons
A week ago, Peskov told CNN that Russia had not achieved any of its military targets in Ukraine and that Moscow had refused to deny the possibility of using nuclear weapons. “Russia’s defense policy assumes that the country will use nuclear weapons only if its existence is threatened,” Peskov said at the time.
