US president says Americans shouldn’t worry about a potentially catastrophic conflict with Russia amid Ukraine tensions
Joe Biden shrugged off the fears that tensions over Ukraine between Washington, Moscow and nuclear war will escalate to nuclear war. This is despite Americans having every reason to worry about potential consequences.
When asked by a reporter if Americans should worry about nuclear war, Biden replied in a curt manner. “No.”Biden and Jill Biden, First Lady of the United States, were walking past a bunch of journalists Monday at an event called Black History Month at White House.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday put his country’s deterrence forces – including nuclear weapons – on highest alert. Moscow stated that this was done at least partly to respond to remarks made by Liz Truss from the UK, who said to Sky News, “If Putin isn’t stopped in Ukraine,” other Eastern Europe countries could be threatened, leading to an international conflict.
“Statements were made by various representatives at various levels on possible altercations, or even collisions and clashes, between NATO and Russia,”Dmitry Peskov was the Kremlin’s spokesperson. “We believe that such statements are absolutely unacceptable.”
