Moscow: The dangers of a nuclear war must be kept to a minimumVladimir Yermakov, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's non-proliferation and arms control department, said the dangers of a nuclear war should be kept to a minimum and any armed conflict between the nuclear powers should be avoided.

The Russian official said all nuclear powers must adhere to the logic set out in official documents in order to prevent a nuclear war, Reuters reported, quoting the Russian news agency Tass.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently said that the West should not underestimate the growing dangers of the nuclear conflict over Ukraine; However, according to Reuters, the United States subsequently stated that, despite the escalation of Moscow's rhetoric, it did not believe that there was a threat of Russia using nuclear weapons.

Yarmakov said on Saturday that the leading nuclear powers must adhere to the logic contained in the documents they have jointly created; According to Tass, he was referring to a joint statement issued in January by Russia, China, Britain, the United States and France, in which the five countries that are permanent members of the UN Security Council agreed that further nuclear proliferation and Atomic war avoided.

"The dangers of nuclear war, which should never be started, must be kept to a minimum, especially by preventing any armed conflict between the nuclear powers," he said. Russia clearly follows this understanding.
