Amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened a nuclear attack. Addressing the nation, Putin threatened Western countries, including the US and said that no one should turn a blind eye to the warning of a nuclear attack.
He said- "Western countries are plotting to destroy and weaken Russia. These countries have now crossed the threshold. Directly, if Russia is threatened, we will also attack with nuclear weapons. A nuclear alert is not a joke."
Preparations to take over Ukraine intensified
During his speech, Putin insisted on increasing the military presence in Ukraine. He signed the decree regarding the mobilization of the army. Under this, Russia is raising 300K reserve soldiers. Putin has increased the military strength of Russia and intensified preparations to take over Ukraine's Donbas. Apart from Donbas, Russia is trying to annex Ukraine's Kherson and Zaporizhia as its part. Putin has ordered a referendum in the area.
Russia declared Donetsk and Luhansk independent at the beginning of the war. Now Russia wants to establish its government here. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.
In such a scenario, people living in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia will vote to join Russia in the coming days. The area has a large Russian-speaking population. A Russian occupation here means the economic destruction of Ukraine.
Russia has been threatening since the start of the war
From the beginning of the war, Western countries began to oppose Russia. Many restrictions were also imposed.
On March 10, Putin said that Western countries had imposed unnecessary restrictions on us. So Russia is facing many problems.
On April 28, Putin once again warned the West. He said that the US and its allies provoked the attack by supporting Ukraine. Don't test our patience.
On June 6, Putin threatened Western countries against sending rocket systems to Ukraine.
