Russian diplomat blasts Pentagon for statements about Russia-NATO direct clash

MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s remarks about a direct military conflict between Russia and NATO in case of Ukraine’s defeat are insane, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in her Telegram account, TASS reported.

She said that the threats  towards Russia are insane. “However, everyone can see who the aggressor is. And it is Washington," the diplomat wrote on her Telegram channel.

Earlier, during a congressional hearing on his hospitalization in January, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that if Ukraine falls, NATO will be drawn into war with Russia.
