Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky

Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, has warned that the entire world should be concerned that Russia may use tactical nuclear weapons during its invasion of Ukraine.
Zelensky was replying to a question from CNN journalist Jake Tapper on CIA Director William Burns’ warning that Russian President Vladimir Putin would deploy a tactical nuclear bomb as a desperate measure in the face of military failures in the 50-day-old assault.

‘I don’t think it’s just me – I think the entire world, all of the countries, should be concerned because it might be false information masquerading as truth,’ Zelensky said in English.

‘We should think that we should not be fearful, that we should not be afraid, but that we should be prepared.’ But that is not a question for Ukraine, and I believe it is a question for the entire globe,’ he said.

As a potential threat, he mentioned both nuclear and chemical weapons.

‘Chemical weapons, they should do it, they can do it; the lives of the people are meaningless to them.’ ‘This is why,’ Zelensky explained in English.

His ominous remarks in the interview came after it was reported that Zelensky had personally lobbied President Joe Biden to identify Russia as a state supporter of terrorism, a move that, if implemented, would have disastrous trade and sanctions consequences.

Burns, the director of the CIA, issued a warning in a speech on April 14;

‘Given President Putin and the Russian leadership’s probable desperation, and given the military failures they’ve suffered so far, none of us can dismiss the threat posed by a possible recourse to tactical nuclear weapons or low-yield nuclear weapons,’ said the intelligence chief.
