NATO calls Russia’s nuclear rhetoric “dangerous and irresponsible”

”NATO is vigilant, and we are closely monitoring the situation. We have not seen any changes in Russia’s nuclear posture that would lead us to adjust our own,” said NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu in a statement.

Russia’s announcement that it will move tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus is “dangerous and irresponsible,” a NATO spokesperson told on Sunday.

“Russia’s reference to NATO’s nuclear sharing is totally misleading,” Lungescu continued, referring to Putin’s claims that his move would merely mirror those of Western nations.

“NATO allies act with full respect of their international commitments. Russia has consistently broken its arms control commitments, most recently suspending its participation in the New START Treaty,” she said.

“Russia must return to compliance and act in good faith,” Lungescu said. 

The European Union’s foreign policy chief also condemned Putin’s announcement.
