Zelensky warned about a nuclear strike from Russia

The world must be prepared for the possibility of Russia launching a nuclear strike on Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with CNN. He was asked if he was concerned about recent comments by the CIA director, who said Thursday that Russia could use tactical nuclear weapons in its invasion.

“Not only me, the whole world, all countries should be worried, because this may be true,” Zelensky said. “We must think that we are not afraid, we are not afraid, but we are ready.”

“But this is not a question for Ukraine, not only for Ukraine, but for the whole world,” Zelensky added.

Zelensky was also asked about the sinking of the valuable Russian warship Moskva.

We know that he is no more. For us, it was a powerful weapon against our country, so its sinking is not a tragedy for us. “The fewer weapons the Russian Federation has invading our country, the better for us,” he said.

In his last evening address to the nation, Zelenskiy said it was difficult to predict how long the war with Russia would last.

“Of course, I hear different forecasts. I have much more information from some of the media about the intentions and capabilities of the Russian army. On the potential of the Russian economy. “On the emotional state of society in Russia,” Zelensky said.

According to him, the duration of the war in Ukraine will be determined by two factors.

“The success of our military on the battlefield is really significant. Historical. But this is still not enough to clear our land of invaders. We will beat them more.”

“Sanctions against Russia are very large. Economically painful. But they are still not enough to leave the Russian military machine without funds. They must be stronger, more destructive,” Zelensky explained.

“The more and the sooner we receive all the weapons we ask for, the stronger our position will be and the sooner peace will come.”

Volodymyr Zelenskyy said today that since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, between 2,500 and 3,000 Ukrainian servicemen have died, and about 10,000 have been injured in battles against the Russian army.
