[London, 26th Reuters]–British Prime Minister Johnson was asked on the TV channel “Talk TV” on the 26th if Russian President Vladimir Putin would consider using tactical nuclear weapons in the event of further military failure in Ukraine. “I don’t think so,” he replied.
“Given the great support of the Russian people for Putin’s actions and the fact that the Russian media seems indifferent to what is happening in Ukraine, Paradoxically, he retreated to Putin and settled the situation. There is a lot of room for political action to embark on. “
Also, over the previous statement by Defense Minister Heapey, if Britain continues to urge Ukraine to attack targets within Russian territory, Russia is immediately opposed to “taking appropriate action,” Johnson said. He added that Ukraine has the right to defend itself, but Britain does not want the crisis to escalate across the Ukraine-Russia border.
Hepee told the BBC Radio that Ukraine’s pursuit of targets deep within Russian territory in an attempt to destroy Russian troops and supply routes was perfectly legitimate.
