The White House sees no need to increase the readiness level of US nuclear forces.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told how the US authorities evaluate the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the readiness to use all means available to the country, including nuclear weapons, to protect its territorial integrity and its people. Washington takes his remarks very seriously, she said, but does not feel the need to raise the level of readiness of its nuclear forces.

“We certainly take these threats very seriously. But at the moment, we see no reason to change our own level of readiness of nuclear forces, ”said an official representative of the American administration.
