Zelensky believes the entire world has to be worried over Russia’s nuclear threat

The entire world has to be worried over Russia’s possible use of nuclear weapons in the war against Ukraine.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with CNN, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Not only me – all of the world, all of the countries have to be worried, because it can be… truth. They could do it. For them the life of the people is nothing. I think we should not be afraid but be ready. But, that is not a question for Ukraine, not only for Ukraine, but for all the world,” Zelensky told.

According to the President of Ukraine, no one expected there to be a war in 2014. No one expected a full-scale invasion and mass killings of civilians; nobody expected Russian troops to invade the areas where there are no military facilities.

“But, that’s what we have now, what has happened. And they can use both chemical weapons and their nuclear potential. Thus, such claims are dangerous. I believe such claims are made by people who are no longer adequate,” Zelensky stressed.

A reminder that, on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, starting a war. Russian troops are shelling and destroying the key infrastructure facilities, launching air and missile strikes on Ukrainian cities and villages, torturing and murdering civilians.
