ANTALYA — Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday he did not believe that Russia’s standoff with the West over Ukraine would lead to nuclear war.

“I don’t want to believe, and I do not believe, that a nuclear war could start,” Lavrov told reporters when asked if there would be a nuclear war.

Lavrov was speaking after talks in Turkey with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba.

He said that rumors of a potential Russian attack against the former Soviet Baltic states “appear to be old hoaxes.” (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge)
