Russia warns of direct military conflict with US, saying ‘US is acting without regard to other countries’ security and interests’

Washington, August 16: Washington’s actions on the world stage risk direct clashes between nuclear-weapon states, the Russian embassy in the United States has warned, media reports said. “Today, the United States continues to act without regard to the security and interests of other countries, which contributes to increased nuclear risks,” the embassy said in a statement on the Telegram channel, RT reported. .

“(U.S.) steps to further engage in a mixed confrontation with Russia in the context of the Ukraine crisis are fraught with unpredictable escalation and direct military conflict with the nuclear-armed states,” the statement said. Joe Biden reiterates US will not intervene militarily against Russia in Ukraine.

The embassy noted that Washington has recently withdrawn from two major arms control agreements, RT reported.

The embassy urged the United States to “take a closer look at its nuclear policy rather than make baseless accusations against countries whose worldviews do not conform to those of the United States.”

“Our country has faithfully fulfilled its obligations as a nuclear power and is making every effort to reduce nuclear risks,” the diplomat said. The statement came after the US accused Moscow of using the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine as a cover for its soldiers.

Europe’s largest factory was seized by Russian forces during the early stages of Moscow’s military campaign in Ukraine, which began in late February. RT reported that it continued to work with Ukrainian personnel under Russian control.
