With Putin’s invasion starting to falter as Ukraine launched a successful counter-attack against the invaders, Russia’s now desperate leader, Vladimir Putin, has publicly threatened to use tactical nuclear weapons, the Daily Mail reports.
Putin made the announcement in a public statement to the Russian people on Wednesday where he also ordered a partial mobilization for the hugely unpopular war.
The Daily Mail adds that if Putin were to do this, there were indications that the Americans would respond with attacks on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. There were no threats of America or NATO using nuclear weapons in the counter-attacks.
The Daily Mail writes:
His comments come after the Russian premier sent shockwaves around the world, as he announced the ‘partial mobilization’ of his reserve military forces to continue his murderous invasion of Ukraine.
And in a chilling warning directed squarely at Western and Nato leaders, desperate despot Putin insisted he would use ‘all means’ necessary to defend swathes of territory seized or set to be annexed by Kremlin forces before threatening to use nuclear weapons.
‘If there is a threat to the territorial integrity of our country, and in protecting our people we will certainly use all means to us – and I’m not bluffing,’ he then added during his televised address to the Russian people on Wednesday morning.

This is not the first time, that Putin has threatened to use nuclear weapons during his invasion of Ukraine.

Does the Bible warn of nuclear war in the end times?
Many have wondered if the Bible warns of nuclear war in the end times.
I believe it does.
But we need to understand that these Biblical prophets were having visions of events taking place thousands of years in the future. The biggest problem is they needed to find words in their language, where bows and arrows were the most advanced weapons of the day, to describe what they were seeing.
