Jens Stoltenberg , the secretary general of NATO, said that the West is taking measures in response to the renewed aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation, in regards to nuclear weapons.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, earlier unveiled a new arsenal of nuclear weapons.

“We are of course concerned, because NATO does not want a new Cold War. We don’t want a new arms race. We’re not mirroring what Russia does, missile for missile, weapon for weapon, but we are responding because we see a more assertive Russia,” Stoltenberg said.

Stoltenberg further called on Russia to abide by the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which Putin has already violated by developing new nuclear weapons.

Putin announced that Russia will be testing a new intercontinental ballistic missile called Sarmat.
