Russia accuses West of stoking risk of nuclear weapons use

On Wednesday, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated that the “detrimental” actions of the United States and its partners were elevating the likelihood of the utilization of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons.
“The natural consequence of the US’ destructive policies is the deterioration in the global security,” Patrushev, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, was quoted as saying by state news agency TASS.

“The risk that nuclear, chemical and biological weapons will be used is increasing,” Patrushev said. “The international arms control regime has been undermined.”
