National Security Advisor for the United States Jake Sullivan stated that should Russia deploy nuclear weapons against Ukraine, the United States would respond swiftly.
According to Sullivan, the United States has clarified to Moscow the “catastrophic consequences” it would face.
Following Vladimir Putin’s veiled nuclear threat last Wednesday in a speech in which he also declared his nation’s first wartime military mobilization since World War Two, his comments were the most recent American warning.
If Russia exceeds this threshold, there would be disastrous consequences for Russia, Sullivan said on NBC’s meet the press program. The United States will react forcefully.

In his remarks on Sunday, Sullivan said the United States had privately spelled out in greater detail exactly what that would imply to Moscow. Still, he did not elaborate on the nature of the intended U.S. reaction.
He claims that the United States and Russia have been in regular touch, particularly over the past few days, to talk about the situation in Ukraine and Putin’s actions and threats.
President of the United States Joe Biden accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of making “overt nuclear threats to Europe” in an address to the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday.
In order to acquire land that Russian forces captured during their February invasion of Ukraine, Russia also held a referendum in four eastern Ukrainian provinces.
The referendums, according to Ukraine and its allies, were a fraud intended to justify a war escalation and Putin’s mobilization push following recent battlefield defeats.
According to experts, Moscow might use the annexation of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia as a threat to Ukraine and its Western supporters by portraying attempts to recapture them as an attack on Russia.
Putin, though, was assembling 300,000 troops and vowed to defend Russia with “all available means” after suffering defeats on the battlefield.
In words perceived in the international arena as a threat to the potential use of nuclear weapons, Putin said, “This is not a bluff.”
Putin “Putin remains intent on wiping out the Ukraine people that he does not believe have a right to exist. continued Sullivan.
“So he’s going to keep coming and we have to keep coming with weapons, ammunition, intelligence, and all the support we can provide.”
