Russian President Vladimir Putin’s address on September 21 regarding the situation in Donbass and the special military operation provoked discussion of the sensitive nuclear issue. This was announced on Friday, September 23, by the Russian Ambassador to Canada, Oleg Stepanov.

The diplomat stressed that “under the current conditions, Russia does not intend to resort to using all its capabilities in the European or other theaters of military operations,” informs TASS.

Commenting on the potential use of nuclear weapons by Russia, Stepanov recalled the grounds for the use of such an arsenal enshrined in Russian legislation. Currently, such grounds are not observed, the Russian ambassador noted.

Stepanov declared the commitment of the Russian authorities to the postulate that a nuclear war cannot be won and must be avoided. In addition, the diplomat recalled the attempts by Russia and China over the years to convince the UK, the US and France to make a statement in support of this formula, which shows that they really take the nuclear issue seriously.

On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a video message to the Russians, warned those who is conducting nuclear blackmail against Russiathat “the wind rose can turn in their direction.” The Russian Federation uses all available means to protect itself, so the Russians can be sure that “the territorial integrity of our homeland, our independence and freedom will be ensured,” the head of state assured.
