Russia slams US test of B61-12 atomic bomb as 'provocative'

Moscow has condemned the recent test of the US В61-12 nuclear bomb, insisting that the move confirms Washington’s plans to sustain its Europe-based arsenal of nuclear arms capable of targeting Russia.

 

Slamming the US testing of its nuclear bomb as “irresponsible” and “openly provocative,” Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov further suggested on Monday that the move is meant to complement Washington’s surging military activities across Europe.
