Biden On Ukraine war

According to US President Joe Biden, the risk of a nuclear Armageddon is higher than it has ever been since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Vladimir Putin’s threat to use tactical nuclear weapons after suffering setbacks in Ukraine, according to Mr. Biden was not joking. He added that the US was trying to figure out Mr. Putin’s exit strategy from the conflict. The US and the EU have already stated that it is important to take Mr. Putin’s nuclear saber-rattling seriously.

Despite Moscow’s nuclear hints, US national security advisor Jake Sullivan claimed last week that the country had not seen any signs that Russia was preparing to use a nuclear weapon in the near future. Russia has been losing territory to Ukraine, including the four recent illegitimate annexations by Russia.US officials have been cautioning Russia that if it encounters difficulties on the battlefield, it may turn to the use of weapons of mass devastation.

The reason the Russian commander had mentioned utilising tactical nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons was because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming according to President Biden. If events continue on their current course, nuclear war might be imminent for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis, Mr. Biden told his fellow Democrats. Since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis, “we have not had to deal with the possibility of Armageddon.”
