Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky does not believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “bluffing” when he hints at the use of nuclear weapons. He stated this on American CBS.
The presenter asked the Ukrainian leader if he considers Putin's nuclear threats a bluff.
«Look, maybe yesterday it was bluff. But now it may be a reality. What is the modern use of nuclear weapons, or nuclear blackmail? They targeted and occupied our nuclear power plant and the city of Energodar. There are six blocks… It's like six Chernobyl blocks. A few days ago they started shelling another nuclear power plant in South Ukraine. The shell fell 300 meters from the station, windows and doors flew out in the building. He wants to scare the whole world. I don't think he's bluffing», — Zelensky replied.
In his opinion, the world is holding back this threat and Putin needs to continue to put pressure on him so that he cannot continue his criminal actions.
- Presidential adviser US National Security Commissioner Jake Sullivan said the US warned the Russian Federation that the use of nuclear weapons would have catastrophic consequences for it.
