‘Countries spending billions of rupees on cataclysmic weapons’
The Secretary-General said that the conference is an opportunity to “discover measures that will help prevent certain disasters and lead humanity on a new path towards a nuclear-free world.” He cautioned that “geopolitical weapons are reaching new heights, there are nearly 13,000 nuclear weapons in arsenals around the world and countries enjoying ‘false security’ are spending billions on catastrophic weapons.”
Putin said – there will never be a nuclear war
In a statement issued by the Kremlin, the Russian presidential office on Monday, Vladimir Putin said there can be no winner in a nuclear war and such a war should never start. A few days after the attack on Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that if there was a third world war, it would be fought only with nuclear weapons. The statement of the Russian President comes at a time when the Russian army is going through a difficult time in Ukraine. Despite the loss of many cities, Ukraine is preparing for a counter-attack.
