The Times newspaper reported Monday (3 October) that NATO's military alliance warned its members that Vladimir Putin was ready to test his willingness to use nuclear weapons and conduct a nuclear test at Ukraine's border.

NATO hasn't observed any changes in Russia’s nuclear posture but is vigilant, an alliance official stated on Tuesday. A Western diplomat commented on the Times report and told Reuters that NATO hadn't warned its allies of a Russian nuclear threat.

Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesperson, said that Russia was not interested in participating in the Times report.

Peskov stated that "the Western media, Western politicians, and heads of states are engaging in many exercises in nuclear rhetoric right at the moment. We don't want to participate in this."
