The U.S. military’s proposal to diversify its nuclear arsenal could lead to an atomic war, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

“Considerable reduction of threshold values in nuclear weapons use can lead to an atomic war even in course of small-scale conflicts,” it said.

On Friday, the Pentagon issued a policy statement, known as Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), focusing on development and deployment of smaller atomic bombs, according to local media.
