Truss, elected in September to replace Boris Johnson, spent only 44 days at the head of the country. On October 20, she announced her resignation due to criticism of the government’s new economic plan and the possibility of increasing public debt for its implementation. According to British media, Truss became “obsessed” with weather reports after British intelligence told her that Russia might detonate a tactical nuclear weapon over the Black Sea following the terrorist attack in Ukraine on the Kerch Strait Bridge, also known as the Crimean Bridge, to demonstrate that Moscow is ready for a strong response. On October 10, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia was not seeking to engage in the “nuclear rhetoric” that has been igniting in the West in recent weeks. The next day, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov expressed a similar sentiment, saying Russia was not threatening anyone with nuclear weapons. On the contrary, according to the minister, the West is introducing this narrative, trying to make it appear that Moscow is plotting to use weapons of mass destruction.
