Russia: Zelenskyy says world ‘should be ready’ for nuclear weapons

Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned Ukrainians to prepare for a possible Russian nuclear attack and stock up on radiation pills.

He urged the world to “prepare” for the grim scenario and medicines that would help curb radiation sickness.

Zelkensky issued the dire warning in an interview before sharing the clip on his Telegram channel on Saturday night.

He made a similar announcement on Friday, saying nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out as Vladimir Putin considers the move as Russia’s war with Ukraine.

Putin stepped up his offensive after the Moskva sank on Thursday, attacking eight cities including Kyiv, Kharkiv and Lviv.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, said CNN an interview Moscow would deploy a nuclear deterrent against Ukraine in the event of an “existential threat”.

Russia’s policy appears to be “escalating in order to de-escalate,” and that could include launching a small nuclear weapon to gain the upper hand in the war, according to the country’s military doctrine.

Zelenskyy said: “We shouldn’t wait for the moment when Russia decides to use nuclear weapons… We need to prepare for that.”

More bomb shelters and anti-radiation drugs are needed, he said. The Ukrainian president added that the Russians “can use any weapon, I’m sure of it”.

Six Ukrainian news websites broadcast the interview.

On Thursday, the Mirror reported how Russia’s flagship in the Black Sea was badly damaged after being hit by rockets, according to Ukrainian officials.

According to unconfirmed reports, up to 500 Russian sailors may have died on board.

The Kremlin claims the Moskva missile cruiser was badly damaged after ammunition on board the ship exploded, but Ukraine says it was hit by two Neptun missiles.

There are conflicting reports from Ukrainian sources as to whether the ship sank.

Michael Petersen, director of the Russia Maritime Studies Institute at the US Naval War College, reported to Radio 4’s Today program on the news that the Russian ship Moskva was badly damaged.

He then said it was too early to know what happened, but it looks like the “Ukrainians managed to win a not insignificant victory at sea”.

Mr Petersen said: “I think it also has symbolic and military value.

“This is the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and it’s showing its age a bit, but it’s the symbol of Russian naval power in the Black Sea.”

He further stated that the Ukrainians lost most of their navy to the Russians when they annexed Crimea in 2014 and that this attack was “symbolically important”.
