US in contact with Russia on nuclear weapons - Blinken

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Washington has been in communication with Moscow regarding the risk of the conflict in Ukraine spiraling into nuclear warfare. He told CBS News that the US makes it clear that "the consequences would be horrific." He added that the Biden administration has "a plan" in case of an escalation, but that it is "determined that this war not expand, not get broader."

Blinken claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already lost the war in Ukraine "in terms of what he was trying to achieve," considering his original goal was to "erase Ukraine's identity as an independent country." However, he noted that Russia "has not demonstrated any willingness in this moment to engage in meaningful discussions" and that there are no peace negotiations with the US at the moment.
