US has a clear plan of action if Russia uses nuclear weapons – Blinken
The United States spoke privately with the Kremlin about the threat of nuclear war. President Vladimir Putin must stop threatening the world, or bad consequences await Russia.
Putin has a clear way out of the war he started – to end it. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said.
Terrible Consequences for Russia
Blinken said the US has clearly told the Russians to stop talking about nuclear weapons.
It is very important that Moscow hears from us and learns from us that the consequences will be dire . And we've made that very clear,” Blinken said.
He added that if Russia stops fighting, the war will end, if Ukraine stops, Ukraine will end. At the same time, Blinken did not share details of how Washington would react to the use of nuclear weapons. However, he said the US administration has a plan. According to the US Secretary of State, President Joe Biden is ready to do everything possible to help Ukrainians defend themselves. The United States does not want the war to expand, so they rally other countries to put pressure on the Russians.

Head of State Volodymyr Zelensky said that earlier the path could be bluffing, but now it can be a reality. He also recalled that the Russians occupied Energodar and the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, where there are 6 power units. Then the invaders began shelling the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant. The shell fell 300 meters from the station, windows and doors flew out in the building.
