Russia warns return of US nuclear weapons to UK would be seen as escalation

During a briefing on Tuesday, Maria Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman of Russia, stated that Russia would consider any repositioning of US nuclear weapons to bases in Britain as an “escalation and a destabilizing practice.”
President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday delivered a warning to the West over Ukraine by suspending a landmark nuclear arms control treaty, announcing that new strategic systems had been put on combat duty, and threatening to resume nuclear tests.

Nearly a year after ordering an invasion that has triggered the biggest confrontation with the West in six decades, Putin said Russia would achieve its aims and accused the West of trying to destroy it.
