Disproof

Reoccuring disinformation. It is Russia, not the US or NATO, that has threatened on numerous occations to use nuclear weapons. For example; in a documentary broadcast by Russian state TV Rossiya on 15 March 2015 (on the occasion of the first anniversary of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol), President Putin said that he had been ready to put nuclear weapons into play bit.ly/1Dwt4oE. On 16 March 2015, Dmitry Kiselev, (included on the EU's sanctions list) reminded viewers of his "Vesti Nedeli" show that "Russia is the only country in the world that could turn the US into nuclear ashes" bit.ly/2eFQgu6. Six days later, Russia's Ambassador to Denmark, Mikhail Vanin, threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Danish military vessels if Denmark were to join NATO's missile defense reut.rs/2enAimW. President Putin also brought up Russia's nuclear arms potential during a meeting with young political activists bit.ly/1qo0uwS and with reference to Crimea cnn.it/28L9fBp.
