US, allies teetering on brink of military confrontation with Moscow, says Zakharova

Moscow, SANA- The United States and its allies are teetering on the brink of an open military conflict with Moscow, which would be fraught with nuclear tensions, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement on Tuesday, according to RT News Agency.

“After provoking an escalation of the Ukrainian crisis and unleashing a violent hybrid confrontation with Russia, Washington and its allies are dangerously teetering on the brink of an open military confrontation with our country, which means a direct armed conflict between nuclear powers. Clearly, such a confrontation would be fraught with nuclear escalation,” the statement reads.

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia isn’t toying with the idea of a nuclear war, indicating that the principled stance of Russia bases on the impossibility of launching nuclear war.
