“The risk of nuclear conflict is high due to threats to use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

I believe that in this situation, European and not only European states would have to respond with a decisive military response, ”TASS quotes Zeman.

According to him, the international community should have sent a warning to the Russian leadership that if nuclear weapons are used on Ukrainian territory, “not only a diplomatic but also a military reaction will follow, with all the ensuing consequences.”

The Kremlin has repeatedly noted that Russia can use nuclear weapons only in accordance with the provisions of its nuclear doctrine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the inadmissibility of nuclear war is Russia's principled position.
