German newspaper readers Die Welt criticized the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky for his changed behavior after the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about nuclear weapons.
“I am inclined to assume that if Zelensky had at least one nuclear bomb, he would have detonated it in the Donbass,” wrote a newspaper reader with the nickname Didi X.
Another commentator noted that he “can no longer listen” to Zelensky’s statements.
“Now Zelensky must finally reach an agreement or act independently. The showman received enough warnings to stop his games in the interests of the US and NATO, ”wrote Martin M.
“Yeah, now, after all, Zelensky is taking Putin seriously,” another reader noted.
“Putin is not bluffing with nuclear weapons,” Zelensky says. Until yesterday, he claimed otherwise. So who’s the comedian here? another commenter pointed out.
September 25 Zelensky in an interview CBS News said he did not believe Putin was bluffing about nuclear weapons. He urged Ukraine’s allies to continue to pressure Russia for containment.
On September 24, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would extend the application of its nuclear doctrine to its possible new territories (the republics of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, where referendums on this issue are now being held).
On September 23, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the US administration took the Russian president’s statements about nuclear weapons seriously. At the same time, she noted that Washington does not intend to increase the level of readiness of its nuclear forces.
On September 21, Putin drew attention to the fact that the United States, Great Britain and the European Union are pushing Ukraine to transfer military operations to Russian territory. He clarified that nuclear blackmail was also used by the West: some representatives of states talk about the admissibility of using nuclear weapons against Russia. Putin recalled that the Russian Federation also has various means of destruction. The head of state also stressed that in the event of a threat to Russia, Moscow uses all the means at its disposal.
On August 23, former British Foreign Secretary and current Prime Minister Liz Truss announced that she was ready to use nuclear weapons “if necessary” if she became British Prime Minister.
On August 2, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated that Russia believes that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed.
On August 22, UN Secretary-General António Guterres noted that the risk of a nuclear conflict had become the most serious in decades. He added that countries with nuclear weapons should commit themselves not to be the first to use them.
