If Moscow employs WMDs, it would be shunned by the entire world, according to the US president.
Russian President Joe Biden has threatened the country with severe repercussions if it uses chemical or nuclear weapons in Ukraine.
Biden was asked what he would say if he found that Moscow is considering using WMDs to counter what Kyiv calls a successful counter-offensive in the east in an interview with CBS News, a portion of which was made public on Friday.
“Don’t. Don’t. Don’t. Like nothing since World War II, you will alter the way that war is viewed, he said.
However, the president chose not to specify how the US would respond. “You believe that if I knew exactly what it would be, I would tell you? Naturally, I won’t tell you. It’ll have an impact.
On the other hand, he asserted that in the event of a nuclear or chemical assault, Russia would “become more of a pariah in the world than they ever have been,” and America’s response would depend on “the degree of what they do.”
Sergey Shoigu, the Russian defense minister, called allegations that Moscow would use nuclear weapons in Ukraine “absurd” and claimed that there are no targets there that would justify such a move.
Russian nuclear policy now restricts their use to situations in which “the fundamental existence of the state is threatened.”
