At the same time, the United States is taking advantage of North Atlantic Alliance partners, “forcing them to finance the revival” of its military-industrial complex, according to a statement posted on the embassy’s Telegram channel.
According to Antonov, the American defense industry did not know such money even during the Cold War.
Moscow constantly warns Washington that its actions could lead the world to disaster, the diplomat added.
He also called the White House’s statements that the Russian Federation allegedly threatens to use nuclear weapons irresponsible. “No one in the Russian political and military leadership has ever spoken like this,” Antonov said.
