World politicians preparing for Russia’s use of tactical nuclear weapons – President of Ukraine

World politicians are preparing for Russia’s possible use of tactical nuclear weapons.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address to the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI), an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Russian state propagandists are openly threatening nuclear weapons. World politicians are preparing for the possibility of Russia’s use of the so-called tactical nuclear weapons or chemical weapons, biological weapons,” Zelensky told.

In his words, this may change the attitude of different states to weapons of mass destruction.

“If Russia indulges in nuclear blackmail with impunity, it may seem logical to various forces in the world to acquire nuclear weapons for themselves. To say that it is dangerous for the whole world is to say nothing,” the President of Ukraine stressed.

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