"As for the technical state of Russia's nuclear weapons. Its entire nuclear capability ended in 1997. When was the last time they tested nuclear weapons? In the late 1990s in Kazakhstan at the corresponding training ground. Where will they apply it? On the front line to destroy not only Ukrainian, but also their units? The Black Sea? There are three NATO countries," the Minister of Defense emphasized.

Reznikov also stressed that after Mariupol, Bucha, rocket attacks, Ukrainians do not get intimidated with nuclear weapons, the same is advised to the partners: "Stop being afraid of Russia. This is not the second army of the world, it is beggars, looters and rapists. This is a prison that attacked Ukraine," the Minister emphasized.
