US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that China and India could influence Russia’s decision not to use nuclear weapons in the conflict in Ukraine.
In an interview with The Atlantic, Blinken noted that these countries may have expressed a categorical ban on the use of such weapons to Russia. According to Blinken, Russian President Vladimir Putin had to heed the arguments of Moscow’s important partners.
However, no evidence has been presented that India and China approached Russia with such demands.
Russia, in turn, has previously stated that it does not plan to use nuclear weapons in the conflict in Ukraine, with the exception of defense in the event of an attack by NATO. Radioactive contamination of the territory of Ukraine, like any other cities, is not necessary for Moscow.
In addition, Blinken said that Russia’s relations with India are deteriorating, and India is moving towards more active cooperation with the West. However, no confirmation of this assertion was provided. If India expands its military supplies and cooperation not only with Russia, but also with other countries, then this is its sovereign right.
