Russia urges US to 'cool down'

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov (pictured) stated on Monday, in a televised appearance on Channel One, that the United States needs to "cool down."

"We tell our American interlocutors, again and again, to use the most neutral words, that they should... not pump up the situation [and should] not bring it closer to a dangerous line," Ryabkov stressed.

Furthermore, the official noted Moscow's position on nuclear weapons use has not changed, underlining that "everything remains in the same vein and within the same framework that is set by our military doctrine, as well as the foundations of state policy in the field of nuclear deterrence."
