Russia hasn’t ruled out the use of nuclear weapons as a way to defend itself amid the ongoing war in Ukraine which began last February.

Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson for the Russian foreign ministry, said in a news briefing on Thursday that Russia could possibly use nuclear weapons in certain dire situations.

“Russia’s nuclear deterrence policy is strictly defensive. The hypothetical use of nuclear weapons is clearly limited by extraordinary circumstances within the framework of strictly defensive purposes,” she said, according to Russian news agency Tass.
