Speaking at a briefing on Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ivan Nechaev said nuclear weapons would be used solely as a “response” measure.

“Russian military doctrine allows a nuclear response only in response to the threat of mass destruction, or when the very existence of the state is threatened,” he said. “That is, the use of a nuclear arsenal is possible only as part of a response to an attack in self-defenCe and only in emergencies.”
