Moscow – ‘Western countries are threatening Russia with nuclear blackmail. However, they should realize that this trick can backfire on them. If Russia’s sovereignty is challenged, all available options will be used to protect the country and its people. The West should know that I am not bluffing’, Russian President Vladimir Putin said as he gave the West a reality check.
‘The Russian Army is fighting on a front that is more than a thousand kilometres long. In Ukraine, the Russian Army is fighting not only against the Ukrainian Army but against the entire military system of the West. The West has planned to divide Russia and destroy the country. NATO surveillance continues in the southern regions of Russia. The US, the UK and the European Union are forcing Ukraine to start a military conflict with Russia. Western countries are constantly taking an aggressive stance that Russia must be defeated in the war by any means,’ Putin said as he clarified his position.
Attempts were made to threaten Russia with nuclear blackmail through attacks on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and statements made by officials of NATO member countries. There were warnings issued threatening the use of nuclear weapons against Russia. These countries should bear in mind that Russia has more advanced nuclear weapons than the NATO countries,’ Putin warned. The Russian President also reassured the nation by saying that the citizens should be assured that Russia will preserve the freedom and sovereignty of its people by using all the means available to it. A few days ago, US President Joe Biden warned Putin against using nuclear weapons. President Biden had said that Russia should not use nuclear weapons under any circumstances. Otherwise, it will face serious consequences.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has hinted that Russia may use nuclear weapons in the early days after launching its campaign in Ukraine. Putin also ordered Russia’s nuclear forces to be on alert. After that, Russia showed its readiness by conducting a new test of the nuclear weapon ‘Sarmat’. Six months later, President Putin again warned Ukraine and the Western countries by threatening them with a nuclear attack. With Putin’s latest warning, the western world has again been thrown into turmoil, and the issue of nuclear war has come to the fore.
