“Certainly, this will damage the atmosphere of predictability, security, stability and non-proliferation in the entire world,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters.

He said Russia would continue its policy to ensure the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.
