Rohozin's direct speech: "Russia has no hostile intentions towards Finland and Sweden, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleksandr Hrushko said.
Sarmat also has no biassed attitude and hostile intentions towards NATO countries.
It's just that kind of job."

- Recently, the Russian authorities and propagandists have been increasingly talking about nuclear war.
- For example, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that the pumping of weapons by NATO countries into Ukraine increases the possibility of transition to a fully fledged nuclear war.
- According to the head of US National Intelligence, Avril Gaines, Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to use tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine, if the defeat of his troops in Ukraine becomes impossible to hide.
- According to the Financial Times Western governments already doubt Russia's readiness for nuclear escalation, and therefore have accelerated the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine.
The leadership of the North Atlantic alliance has no evidence that Russia is preparing a nuclear strike on Ukraine. The head of the Central Intelligence Agency, William Burns, has also stated that there is no clear evidence that Russia is preparing for a nuclear strike on Ukraine.
