According to Mykhailo Podoliak, Russia's impunity for nuclear threats would erode the long-standing principle that nuclear weapons can only be used defensively when the survival of a country is at stake.

He stated this at a briefing dedicated to the exchange and return of defenders of Ukraine from captivity.

"We feel this support from the entire American people. And I want to thank you, as members of Congress, for making very important decisions that help us fight," he emphasized.
