(TIMES OF ISRAEL) — Senior Russian military leaders recently discussed the possibility of using a tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine, raising concerns in Washington and the West, the New York Times reported Wednesday, citing multiple US officials.

The unnamed sources would not reveal the scenarios that Russian military discussed but said that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has sole authority over use of such a weapon, was not involved in the conversations. However, the fact that such discussions were even held by the generals concerned the Biden administration.

Nonetheless, US officials say there is no indication that Russia is preparing to make a tactical nuclear strike, and is not moving such weapons into place.
