US Permanent Representative to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield accused Russia of using chemical weapons in Syria, she made such a statement on PBS. Her words are quoted by the press service of the diplomatic mission.

“They also used false accusations against the United States and Ukrainians of using chemical weapons, and we know that they are capable of using chemical weapons. They used it against their own people, they used it in Syria,— said the diplomat.

At the same time, Thomas-Greenfield is sure, Moscow understands the danger of using nuclear weapons, “whatever the nature or form it may have.” She called the words of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about nuclear weapons “bragging”, while calling for the threat of nuclear weapons deployment to be taken seriously.

The United States is pressuring Russia in the Security Council on the issue of nuclear weapons, the diplomat assured, adding that these efforts should encourage the Russian leadership not to use it and abandon “threats against defenseless Ukraine.”

“And if they make the mistake of using nuclear weapons, we will hold them accountable. I won't go into the details of what we're going to do here, but they need to know that we'll answer them very, very strongly if they do,” — warned the US Ambassador to the UN.
