Biden says Putin will not chose the potent option of battlefield nuclear weapons to get absolute gains in Ukraine


In an interview with CNN, the US president says Putin's thinly-veiled threat of using nuclear weapons as a decisive resort is irresponsible. The President of the US further added, "Russians are engulfed with a strategic surprised, they were welcomed with an open hand in Kyiv".

Last week President said that incumbent Armageddon will come into reality, amid Russian partial mobilization and threats of nuclear weapons looming.

Putin escalated the war further on Monday, ordering air raids across Ukraine in response to an alleged attack by Kyiv on Russia’s bridge to annex Crimea last weekend.

Monday’s blasts killed at least 19 people, according to Ukraine, while four reportedly died in the bridge explosion that Kyiv has not directly claimed responsibility. Biden left open the possibility of talks with Putin on the sidelines of the meeting of G20 nations in Bali scheduled for November. “If he came to me at the G20 and said ‘I want to talk about the release of Griner’, I would meet with him,” he said.

Griner, a Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) player and two-time Olympic gold medallist, was sentenced to nine years in jail last month over drug charges.

Erstwhile, the recent Kyiv offensive and decisive attack on the transit bridge between Russia and Crimea certainly shackle Russian military forces. Cyber and drone technology in the 21st century now turning the tables on war. The diatribe that Russian forces are encapsulated, turning the situation towards the Prisoner dilemma, in which nuclear weapons might be the last resort for strategic advantage.
