Lavrov: US nuclear weapons is in Europe, it’s time to return home

“It is unacceptable for Russia that American nuclear weapons are located on the territory of a number of European countries, it’s time to return it to home.” This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

According to him, the countries of the European Union are trying to escape from an honest dialogue face to face, choosing the way of sanctions.

“The tragedy of Ukraine is the result of the connivance of Western patrons and the criminal regime formed there,” said Lavrov.

Russian Foreign Minister noted that the Kiev authorities who have identified plans to gain their own nuclear weapons threaten international security.

“The Russian Federation may not respond to the real danger of the acquisition of Ukraine of nuclear weapons and takes all measures to prevent this” – said Lavrov.

He also stressed that Russia does not have land missiles of medium and less distance, and added that for official Moscow, the achievement of legally binding security guarantees from NATO countries is of fundamental importance.
