Russia Insists on Removal of U.S. Nuclear Bombs from Europe

Russia is demanding that the U.S. remove all of its nuclear bombs from Europe. “Regardless of the combat readiness of the weapons allocated for NATO’s joint nuclear missions, this extremely destabilizing practice in itself remains the most serious problem for the security of the continent,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at her press briefing yesterday, reported TASS. “Our demands in this regard remain unchanged and include the withdrawal of all U.S. nuclear weapons from Europe, as well as the elimination of the infrastructure for their deployment there,” she emphasized.

Zakharova pointed out that said missions are based on the forward deployment of U.S. weapons in Europe “thousands of kilometers away from the U.S. national territory and within operational reach of Russian territory.”
