“This will change the face of warfare since World War II”: US President Biden warns Vladimir Putin against using nuclear or chemical weapons in Ukraine. More on Live Ticker.
uS President Joe Biden has warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against using tactical nuclear or chemical weapons following the setback in Ukraine. “Don’t do that, don’t do that, don’t do that. It will change the face of warfare since World War II,” Biden said in an interview with CBS television on Saturday night (local time).
According to Biden, Russia will make itself an outsider more than ever.
The Russian president has said he will change course if Moscow continues to pressure his troops. In a speech about the February invasion of Ukraine, Putin hinted that nuclear weapons could be used if the West intervenes in what Russia officially calls “special military operations” in the war in Ukraine.
As a result of the current developments in Ukraine, nationalists in Russia are pressuring Putin to regain the initiative.
