Political analyst Edward Lozansky says a nuclear exchange between the United States and Russia will end the human civilization.

Lozansky, president of World Russia Forum, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Sunday while commenting on a recent statement by Republican Senator John McCain about Russia.

In an interview broadcast on Friday, McCain rejected the possibility of war between the United States and Russia. “There would never be an all-out war with Russia that I know of. I know of no scenario where that would happen.”

“Of course, no one wants war, especially a war between the United States and Russia because this can quickly turn into a nuclear war and this can be end of the civilization as we know it,” Lozansky said.

“But when people like McCain say some sort of that, there is a little trust in his words. And the best way to avoid a possible war scenario is to people like McCain not to be [at] leading positions, because on one hand he is saying that the US will not start a war, but then [at] the same time he is talking about the global US domination, leadership, increasing the military budget,” he added.

“Why the US will spend all this money and effort? What was it, for peace or for war? I am very skeptical of McCain’s statements, and since he is becoming… the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, I don’t think it’s very good for the cause of world peace,” Lozansky concluded.
