The president of the Russian Federation has been threatening the world with a nuclear attack since the first weeks of the war. First, they touched the West and the assistance they provide. The threats are now addressed in all countries, including Ukraine. In a recent address, Putin stated that in the event of an attack on the territory of the Russian Federation, he would defend the territory by all means, including nuclear weapons. Recall that the day before, Russia decided to steal the occupied territories and make them part of its country through referendums.
The EU has reacted to Putin's new statement. On the one hand, the organization's political leaders will not stop providing aid to Ukraine. But on the other hand, the EU believes that Putin is "cornered", so the nuclear threats of the president of the Russian Federation should not be underestimated.
According to the BBC, EU High Representative for Foreign Policy Josep Borrel advises reaching a diplomatic agreement to end the war in Ukraine. However, the agreements must respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. This is the only way to avoid catastrophe and not destroy Ukraine as a country.
The administration of US president Joe Biden also does not exclude the possibility of nuclear strikes. However, Biden has a plan, and the presidential administration also. The president of America does not hide that he wants to send official letters for several months to influential persons of the Russian Federation. The address is planned to write about the consequences of blows and call to end blackmail. The plan in case of pressing the "red button" is not disseminated but claims it is and will be immediately implemented.
The secretary-general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Jens Stoltenberg, warned Russia of the dire consequences. Actual plans were not announced either. At the same time, the politician believes that the use of nuclear weapons will not be in the Russian-Ukrainian war.
"The probability of the use of nuclear weapons is low, but the potential consequences are so great that for this reason, we must take it seriously," said Stoltenberg.
The president of Ukraine, who, together with his people, is in the greatest danger, believed the threats. On September 25, Zelenskyy stated this in an interview with the French television channel CBS.
What is the modern use of nuclear weapons or nuclear blackmail? They have targeted and occupied our nuclear power plant and the city of Energodar. There are 6 blocks... It's like 6 Chornobyl blocks. A few days ago, they started shelling another South Ukrainian nuclear plant. The shell fell 300 m from the station, and windows and doors were blown out of the building. He wants to intimidate the whole world. I don't think he's bluffing," the head of state said and called on the world to continue fighting the aggressor.
