(ANSA) — ROME, NOVEMBER 02 — According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, there is no need to fear the Russian Federation.
At the same time, however, it hints that Moscow might resort to the use of nuclear weapons, it said in an interview on Czech TV, as reported by Ukrinform.
The Ukrainian leader refused to assess the likelihood of Russia using nuclear weapons in the ongoing war because, in his view, Russia prefers to do the opposite of what it claims: “I don’t want to make such an assessment because such a threat is out there. I think there is no reason to fear them. There is no reason to fear Russia. I don’t think they are appropriate. They may or may not do certain things. There is no need to link the ultimatums of Russia or the fulfillment of its conditions that indicate that if you do not fulfill them, they will use nuclear weapons. That would be a big mistake. These things are unrelated,” Zelenskyy said. (HANDLING).
