  • Russian Military Chief: NATO Expansion Raises Risk of Nuclear War

    Speaking today at a news conference, Russian military chief General Nikolai Makarov warned that the continued expansion eastward by NATO raised the risk that small border conflicts could escalate into a major war, including the possible use of nuclear weapons.

    Makarov cited the number of former Warsaw Pact powers already absorbed by NATO, as well as the effort to include both Ukraine and Georgia into the alliance, as dramatically raising the prospect of border conflicts in the area.

    “In certain conditions, I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons,” the general warned.
