“Clear indication that he is ready to use atomic bombs”: Russia expert explains Putin’s threatening speech
The Russian President is mobilizing reservists and has a clear message for the West. Russia expert Gerhard Mangott explains how serious Putin is and what could happen next.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin was a long time coming. His speech was scheduled for Tuesday evening, and it was not until Wednesday morning that he commented on the war in Ukraine. He announced the mobilization of 300,000 reservists and said Russia was ready to defend itself by any means necessary. This is “not a bluff”.
