Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said that Russia has the right to use nuclear weapons “if necessary” and that this is “certainly not a bluff”.

Medvedev, deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, said Moscow will have to respond to threats if it is pushed “beyond its limits”.

He warned that Russia would respond “without much consultation” as tensions rise with the West over discredited referendums taking place on whether Russian-occupied Ukrainian territory should join the Russian Federation.
