Russia accuses of violating non-proliferation treaty | Europe Updated | D.W.

Russian Ambassador to London Andrei Kellin on Sunday (03/21/2021) accused the United Kingdom of violating the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty by increasing its stockpile of nuclear weapons by 40%.

“This is a breach of the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a number of agreements that say there should only be a reduction in the number of warships,” the ambassador told LBC, a London-based radio station.

In presenting the “Integrated Review” report, the government identified Russia as the “biggest threat” to UK security, while at the same time considering China as a threat, but also a trading partner. Kellin said today that the London document “refers to Russia as a fourteen-time serious threat,” but “there is no evidence or explanation for that formula.” (efe / reuters)
