The United States is seeking to escalate its conflict with Russia over the Ukraine crisis to “thermonuclear” warfare.

The United States and its European allies are seeking to overthrow the Russian government by escalating the confrontation with Moscow up to the “threshold of a thermonuclear war,” an author in Madrid says.

US President Barack Obama is orchestrating a regime change to topple Russian President Vladimir Putin, said Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg.

The US and Britain have “reactivated a policy of threatening tactical nuclear warfare against Russia and China to force them to submit to the crumbling transatlantic financial empire,” Estulin said during a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday.

“That submission will not happen, however, as the Russian leadership has repeatedly made clear,” he added.

Estulin said the US and Britain have “repeatedly deployed murderous and terrorist acts” to target independent nations and they are willing to “massively escalate the confrontation with Russia up to the threshold of a thermonuclear war.”

Relations between Washington and Moscow have been strained over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

Washington accuses Moscow of arming and supporting pro-Russian forces fighting in Ukraine. The Kremlin, however, calls the accusations "groundless."

The highest-ranking general in the US military says the United States should consider providing lethal arms to Ukraine to help battle pro-Russian forces amid new threats to impose additional sanctions against Russia.

On Tuesday, the United States and the European Union agreed to "impose significant additional costs" on Russia if a ceasefire agreement about the Ukraine conflict is violated.
