Putin did not threaten to deploy nuclear weapons during his address on September 21. In the case of “a risk to the territorial sovereignty of our nation and to protect Russia and our people,” he promised to “make use of all armed systems available to us.”
The United States did not establish a “No First Use” policy regarding nuclear weapons. Vice President Joe Biden has stated his support for the “No First Use” policy throughout his 2020 campaign.
