Kyiv:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not think Vladimir Putin was lying when he said Moscow would be ready to use nuclear weapons to defend Russia.

The Russian president said in a televised address last week that Moscow would use “all available means” to protect Russia and its people if its territorial integrity was threatened.

Mr. Zelensky, who has previously issued warnings such as nuclear blackmail, told CBS News on Sunday: “Look, maybe yesterday it was a scam. Now, it could be. become the truth”.

Mr Zelensky added: “I don’t think he is cheating.

The Ukrainian president said Russian attacks on or near two of Ukraine’s nuclear plants could be considered “contemporary use of nuclear weapons or nuclear blackmail”.

Kyiv accuses Moscow of repeatedly shelling the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant during the war in Ukraine and recently launching a missile attack near the Pivdennoukrainska nuclear plant.

Moscow denies shelling the Zaporizhzhia factory, accusing Kyiv of being responsible. It did not comment on the Pivdennoukrainska strike.
