“Global Catastrophe” If NATO Clashes With Russian Army: Warns Putin
Astana : Russian President Vladimir Putin said that any direct contact or direct clash of NATO troops with the Russian army would lead to a “global catastrophe”.
Addressing the news conference in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana, Putin said, “In any case, direct contact, direct clash of (NATO) troops with the Russian army is a very dangerous move which could lead to a global catastrophe. I hope that those who are saying this are smart enough not to take such a step.”
Earlier, Putin had warned that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russian territory after annexing four regions of Ukraine last month, a move which the UN this week condemned.
Putin has renewed his nuclear threats as he announced the annexation of Ukrainian territory, some of which Russia doesn’t control, and with the call-up of 300,000 reservists to reinforce his flagging invasion.
