Deputy representative of Russia Polyansky urged to consider all options in case of threats to a nuclear power
Dmitry Polyansky, Russia’s first deputy representative to the UN, responded to a question about the likelihood of a nuclear escalation, as well as the circumstances in which Moscow would consider a nuclear strike justified. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
Countries facing and threatening a nuclear power must consider all options, he said. At the same time, Polyansky pointed out that he was not a military man and that it was not for him to draw such conclusions. He stressed that he is a diplomat and does not belong to the circles that make decisions on nuclear strategy.
In addition, Russia’s deputy representative to the UN added that if there is an existential threat to the country, then, in his opinion, Moscow can use a nuclear weapon.
Earlier, a member of the Federation Council Alexei Pushkov said that the West’s refusal to accept the establishment of a multipolar world threatens the world with conflicts with the risk of nuclear catastrophe. According to the senator, in the first half of the 21st century the world will face a fierce struggle for supremacy, and the West’s move away from a model of social order other than “liberal democracy” will be accompanied by intense conflicts. At the same time, the economy, Pushkov believes, “will again and again fall victim to political decisions.”
