“We have no reason to adjust our strategic nuclear posture because we have no indications that Russia is preparing to use nuclear weapons in an imminent manner,” a White House spokeswoman said Friday.

This clarification by spokeswoman Karen Jean-Pierre comes after strongly worded statements Thursday by President Joe Biden, in which he considered that for the first time since the Cold War the world is facing the threat of an “end of the world” war against the backdrop of the Russian attack on Ukraine.
