'I don’t think he’s bluffing': Zelensky warns Putin’s nuclear threats 'could be a reality'


    In an ominous warning to Western allies, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Vladimir Putin could end up executing his nuclear threats. After conquering parts of Eastern Ukraine, Russian troops now appear to be on the back foot, as Ukrainian troops are mounting a successful counteroffensive. In response, Putin announced he would mobilise 300,000 reservists and also threatened with nuclear weapons. 

    When asked if he thinks Putin is bluffing at this juncture of the war, President Zelensky told Face the Nation: “Look, maybe yesterday it was bluff.

    “Now, it could be a reality. 

    “Let’s look at contemporary use of nuclear weapons, or nuclear blackmail. He targeted and occupied our nuclear power plant in the city of Enerhodar.”

    President Zelensky said: “He continues his blackmail related to us exporting electricity to Europe. 

    “Several days ago, they [Russians] started shooting at another nuclear power plant. The nuclear plant lost all the windows and doors, etc.

    “So, he wants to scare the whole world. These are the first steps of his nuclear blackmail.”

    “I don’t think he’s bluffing. I think the world is deterring it and containing this threat. 

    “We need to keep putting pressure on him and not allow him to continue.”
