The Russian Foreign Ministry has commented on the US plans to start production of the modernized nuclear bomb B61-12.
According to the director of the Russian MFA Department on arms nonproliferation and control, Mikhail Ulyanov, Moscow will take into account in its military planning the appearance of modernized nuclear bomb in USA.
Also the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation noted that the new bomb will have greater precision and less destructive power. "American experts were quick to call the new warheads more "ethical "... But this is precisely the negative: such characteristics of new weapons objectively would increase the temptation to use them" - said Ulyanov.
