MADRID, May 27. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, has assured this Friday that world leaders “are preparing” for the possibility that Russia launches new offensives with nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons.
Zelensky’s new warnings about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear intentions came in a recorded speech for the Indonesian Foreign Policy Community (FPCI), a research institute.
“The propagandists of the Russian state openly threaten with nuclear weapons”, the Ukrainian president has warned again, who believes that if the Kremlin definitively takes that step, the attitude of different states “may change”.
“If Russia indulges in nuclear blackmail with impunity, it may seem logical that various forces in the world acquire nuclear weapons for themselves. To say that it is dangerous for the whole world is an understatement,” he stressed, Ukrinform reports.
Shortly after President Putin ordered the first Russian tank to cross the Ukrainian border on February 24, from kyiv they have been warning of the possibility that the Kremlin would use this type of weaponry, even denouncing the use of chemical weapons in some bars from the war.
A month ago, the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Lavrov, assured that there is a “real risk” of the crisis in Ukraine ending up triggering a nuclear conflict and World War III.
