Russia’s ambassador to Australia says the world ‘should be concerned’ about his country’s use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

Senator Wong said the expulsion of Russian ambassador Alexey Pavlovsky was ‘under consideration’ after Vladimir Putin threatened to use nuclear weapons.
Dr. Pavlovsky told the nine newspapers that any diplomatic expulsion would be met with reciprocal action from Moscow.
Asked about the potential use of nuclear weapons in the Ukraine war, Dr. Pavlovsky: ‘Our military doctrine sets the conditions and situations for when nuclear weapons can be used by the Russian Federation.’
Ukraine’s ambassador to Australia Vasyl Myroshnychenko said the number of Russian diplomats accredited in Australia should match the number of Australians in Moscow.
‘It’s called reciprocity,’ he wrote on Twitter.
‘How many RUC diplomats work in AU? European nations have expelled over 500 Russian diplomats.’

Sir. Myroshnychenko also reposted a video showing a donated Australian Bushmaster towing a captured Russian armored personnel carrier.
‘Good morning guys! Isn’t it beautiful?,’ he tweeted.
ANU International Security Professor John Blaxland has warned that the coming winter in the Northern Hemisphere will be ‘ugly’.
“We are looking down the barrel of a prolonged conflict,” he told Nine.
‘Neither side appears to be backing down. Ukraine continues to receive support from the West … and meanwhile the Russians are recruiting 300,000 or more soldiers who will trickle down in the coming months.’
