“While we have not seen some rhetorical gestures on the part of the Kremlin moving towards higher nuclear alert levels, so far we have not seen much practical evidence of deployment or military nature. That will only reinforce the concern,” he continued.

“We’re watching very closely for that,” Burns said. “It’s one of our most important responsibilities at CIA.”
