Biden: Putin is not kidding about nuclear

US President Joe Biden, describing Russian leader Putin’s statements as “the biggest danger the world has faced since the Cuban Missile Crisis”, said “Putin is not kidding”.

While the threat of Russian President Vladimir Putin to use nuclear weapons caused a reaction in the West , US President Joe Biden described Putin’s statements as “the greatest danger the world has faced since the Cuban Missile Crisis”.

“Putin isn’t kidding that he could use tactical nuclear, biological or chemical weapons because his military’s performance is severely underperformed,” Biden said in a meeting with Democratic donors in New York yesterday. “For the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis, we are facing the direct threat of using nuclear weapons. We have not faced the possibility of apocalypse since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis,” Biden said, adding that he still did not think that Russia could do such a thing.

Putin declared partial mobilization in the country last month and said, “If our territorial integrity is threatened, Russia will use all available means, this is not a bluff.”

The Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24 led to a resurgence of the threat of nuclear war, which had grown during the Cold War. At that time, the US planting nuclear warheads in Turkey and Italy, and the Soviet Union in Cuba, brought the two superpowers to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
