In the Federation Council responded to the UK statement on the right to a nuclear attack
MOSCOW, 25 APR — RIA Novosti. In the words of British defence Secretary Michael Fallon that London has the right to a preemptive nuclear strike should be followed by a harsh response, said on his page in Facebook, first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich.
“At best this statement should be considered as an element of psychological warfare,” — said the Senator.
Klintsevich stressed that if Britain is ready to attack a nuclear power itself, “having the largest area would be literally wiped off the face of the earth retaliation”. And if the blow will be inflicted on non-nuclear power it will be like a nuclear attack on the United States on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki concluded the Klintsevich.
Earlier, Prime Minister Theresa may, and Fallon himself during the discussion in Parliament the strategy of nuclear deterrence has stated that Britain is ready to proactively use its existing nuclear weapons.
