UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has said in an interview that placing American nuclear warheads on British territory is not ruled out - but it would have to be "a very delicate act."

There have been worrying signs of stepping up levels of activity both by Russian forces and by Russian-controlled separatist forces" in Ukraine, Hammond told the BBC's Andrew Marr.

There have been media reports in the last week that Washington was considering withdrawing from a Cold War-era treaty with Moscow and returning nuclear-capable medium-range missiles to Europe in an effort to counter what it calls "Russian aggression."
When asked if the UK would host American nukes, Hammond said:

What Hammond is particularly worried about is Russia's which he says, includes alleged use of and the stationing of missiles in the coastal exclave of Kaliningrad between Poland and Lithuania.

According to Hammond, Russia needs to get that Asked whether he thinks stationing US nuclear weapons would be that signal, he said:

Despite all its alleged aggression, Russia according to Hammond has and he would not want

In any case, UK hosting US nukes remains a distant prospect so far, as the foreign secretary said he hasn't seen

The UK has its own nuclear arsenal in the Trident program. It comprises about 200 warheads based on several submarines stationed at a base in Scotland. Recent plans to modernize the arsenal have been met with mass protests.

Moscow warned that possible redeployment of US nuclear cruise missiles to Europe would only add to existing tensions, instead of increasing America's security. It is accusing Washington of violating the 1987 INF treaty and waging an information war in an effort to discredit Russia at all costs.

Comment: This delusional response from Hammond follows on from yet more insane thinking, as US officials consider nuclear strikes against Russia.

Not to mention blatant double standards! British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond recently referred to Crimea's referendum to join Russia held in March 2014 a "flagrant breach of Ukrainian and international law" and demanded that Russia returned the peninsula to Ukraine. In response, Aleksey Pushkov said:

"London should pause and chill out. All Western opinion polls in Crimea say the absolute majority supports reunification with Russia," adding, "Take notice, London. Crimea has much more reasons to be part of Russia than the Falklands to be part of Britain,"
