Zelensky says the world will not allow Russia to use nuclear weapons

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he does not believe Russia will use nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently released further escalating rhetoric that he is using any means necessary to achieve his goals in Ukraine.

Speaking to German media on Wednesday, Zelensky said Russia would not be allowed to act on nuclear threats.

“I don’t believe he will use these weapons,” he said. “I don’t believe the world will allow him to use these weapons.”

Zelensky added that Ukraine and its allies must not give in to Putin’s threats.

“Tomorrow Putin can say: ‘In addition to Ukraine, we also want a part of Poland, otherwise we will use nuclear weapons.’ We cannot agree on such compromises,” he said.

Putin also announced that Russia would increase mobilization to strengthen its armed forces.

Zelensky said Russia had already mobilized over the past month and noted the low morale of Russian troops.

“We already know they mobilized cadets, guys who couldn’t fight,” he said. “These cadets fell. They couldn’t even complete their training. All these people can’t fight. They came to us and died.”

Zelensky said Putin needed “an army of millions” because many of his troops who encounter Ukrainian forces on the battlefield “just ran away”.

He added that Putin “wants to drown Ukraine in blood, as well as in the blood of his own soldiers.”

Zelensky’s adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said Putin’s threats to use nuclear weapons show the Kremlin “has not yet understood who it is dealing with”.
