Kremlin says British move to boost nuclear arsenal will harm international stability

- The Kremlin said on Wednesday that it regretted a British decision to boost its nuclear arsenal and said the move would harm international stability.

Britain will increase its nuclear warhead stockpile by more than 40% to ensure its security in a more risky global environment and as it faces new technological threats, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday. nL8N2LE5HH

Russia's foreign ministry earlier on Wednesday described the British plans as a serious blow to arms control. nR4N2L3012
