Wark and Uinnefeld also drew the Committee's attention to the abuse of Russia's nuclear rhetoric. "As a result of the violation by the Russian Federation's sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the senior Russian officials have made numerous allegations of Russian nuclear forces, their capabilities and intentions. These statements were both veiled and non-veiled attempt to intimidate us and our allies, "- noted military leaders.
