Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened to use nuclear weapons in the conflict in Ukraine. He is not faking at all. The bloc’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said the EU must take Putin’s threats seriously. BBC news.
Josep Borrell told the BBC the war had reached a ‘dangerous moment’.
He made these comments during a referendum on the annexation of four regions of Ukraine to Russia.
Borel said Putin has faced disaster on the battlefield. His forces were pushed back by the Ukrainian counterattack. Of course this is a dangerous moment as the Russian army is cornered. Putin has threatened to use nuclear weapons in response. It’s too bad.
In an address to the nation earlier this week, Putin said his country had “various weapons of mass destruction” and that all means available to the country would be used.
He also said, ‘I’m not faking it.’
“When people say it’s not a scam, you have to take them seriously,” Borrell said.
In the same speech, Putin also announced that 300,000 young men would be forced to join the military. His announcement sparked protests across the country and there were reports of young people fleeing the country to avoid going to the front lines.
