Dmitry Polyanskiy, the Russian deputy ambassador to the UN, warned that if NATO provokes Moscow they have the right to use nuclear weapons.

This comes after Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that they will not rule out using nuclear weapons in the face of an “existential threat.”

Sky News asked Polyanskiy if Putin was right to hold the prospect of nuclear war over the rest of the world, he said, “If Russia is provoked by NATO, if Russia is attacked by NATO, why not, we are a nuclear power.

“I don’t think it’s the right thing to be saying. But it’s not the right thing to threaten Russia, and to try to interfere.

“So when you’re dealing with a nuclear power, of course, you have to calculate all the possible outcomes of your behaviour.”

He dismissed clais that Russian forces are guilty of war crimes and then claimed that Ukraine are attacking their own civilians and are blowing up their own cities.

“You believe one thing, I believe another thing,” he said. Putin’s spokesman also suggested Russia could resort to nuclear weapons.

CNN interviewer Christiane Amanpour asked him whether he is “convinced or confident” that Putin will not use the nuclear option.

He said, “We have a concept of domestic security, and it’s public. You can read all the reasons for nuclear arms to be used.

“So if it is an existential threat for our country, then it can be used in accordance with our concept.”

Olga Skabeyeva, host of state-owned Rossiya 1’s show 60 Minutes warned, “If NATO members send peacekeepers to Ukraine…they should understand that this will represent a direct clash between the armed forces of Russia and NATO.

“And how this collision will end is probably not worth explaining…This is called World War Three.”

The Kremlin-controlled Channel 1, military expert Colonel Yury Knutov said something very similar.

He said, “If there are any sane people left in Nato they will not approve [a peacekeeping] operation [in Ukraine].

“Why? Because [a collective] NATO decision will mean a de facto declaration of war on Russia….

“To win this war, whether we like it or not, we will have to use tactical nuclear weapons in the theatre of operations.

“This will then entail the use of powerful strategic nuclear weapons…which means universal nuclear war.”
