US, EU provoking us, risking nuclear escalation – Russia warns
On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova cautioned that the United States of America and its Western allies are provoking Russia.
She said this on Tuesday, according to CNN, with a similar comment coming from Belarus.
Zakharova alleged the US and its allies of inciting more crises in Ukraine and threatening an open military conflict with the country.
“Obviously, such a collision would carry a risk of nuclear escalation,” she said in a statement.
Russia had previously warned that any country, particularly those in the European Union, providing lethal weapons to Ukraine during the ongoing conflict would face repercussions.
However, most Western countries are now supplying Ukraine with weapons in order for them to defend themselves.
