Vladimir Putin put Russia’s strategic nuclear weapons forces on high alert on Sunday, prompting fears over what could happen next in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The Russian president blamed “unfriendly actions in the economic sphere”, which is a reference to economic sanctions, and claimed leading Nato members had made “aggressive statements” towards the nation, prompting him to take the action. Sergiy Kyslytsya hit out at the Russian President for his latest actions.
Mr Kyslytsya said: “What a madness. If he wants to kill himself, he doesn’t need to use nuclear arsenal.
“He has to do what the guy in Berlin did in the bunker in May 1945.”
