The United States has been sending private communications to Russia for several months in which it warns the Kremlin of the “serious consequences” that the use of a nuclear weapon would have, according to U.S. officials and reported by ‘The Washington Post’.
With these messages, the Biden Administration would have deliberately tried to maintain the so-called nuclear deterrence, advocating that Moscow is concerned about how Washington could respond in case it carries out an attack of this type, according to the officials, who have expressed themselves on condition of anonymity.
The attempt to remind Russia of the consequences of a nuclear war comes at a time when Russia continues to escalate its rhetoric about the possible use of weapons of mass destruction and amid a partial mobilization of its population aimed at curbing the Ukrainian counteroffensive in northeastern Ukraine.
So far it is not known whether the United States has sent new messages since the beginning of this new escalation of tension in the war in Ukraine, according to the newspaper.
