On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Western countries that his country’s nuclear threats are “not a bluff.”
According to FOX News, Despite no NATO countries threatening to use nuclear weapons, Putin issued the warning after accusing Western countries of resorting to “nuclear blackmail.”
FOX notes that a Ukrainian counteroffensive has cost Putin’s military thousands of square miles of territory in Ukraine, making the Russian military’s prospects in Ukraine bleak.
On Wednesday, according to the Independent, In a speech to the United Nations general assembly, Joe Biden condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as “brutal, needless.”
Biden also addressed Putin’s threats to use nuclear arms.
President Trump also took notice of Putin’s warning, writing on Truth Social, “President Putin of Russia is now threatening the use of Nuclear Weapons, saying “It is not a bluff.” The Ukrainian conflict should never have happened, and would not have happened if I were President. But as I have made very clear for quite some time, this could now end up being World War III.”
