DISINFO: The US are planning to use nuclear weapons in Europe


The United States are planning to use nuclear weapons in Europe.Some of the European countries, dependent on Washington, pretend that nothing is happening, or they are simply afraid to consider the possibility of the preparations for the use of nuclear weapons in the 21st century.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the US nuclear ambitions. For information about NATO's (of which the US is member) commitment to arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation, see here. Unlike RIA Novosti, which edited the headline of this story after publication and deleted the part about US allegedly using nuclear weapons "in Europe", Sputnik Polska has not updated or deleted any content from this article since its initial publication on 14-May-2019.
