The Kremlin dismissed Monday a call by Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov to use low-yield nuclear weapons in Ukraine, after Moscow’s troops were forced out of Lyman in the east by Ukrainian forces.

“This is a very emotional moment,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said during a daily briefing with journalists, referring to statements by the ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin. “In our country, the use of nuclear weapons happens only on the basis of what is stated in the relevant doctrine”, Peskov said.
