Biden stated that he thinks Putin won't use nuclear weapons, but threatening to finish so is 'reckless'


October 13, 2022: -U.S. President Joe Biden stated that he doesn’t think Russian President Vladimir Putin will use nuclear weapons despite repeated threats, even as the Russian head presses on in the war in Ukraine.

“Well, I don’t think he will,” Biden said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday.

Putin has indirectly is threatening to use nuclear weapons. A televised speech in September revealed a partial military mobilization and said he would “certainly use all the means at my disposal to protect Russia and our people.” He also stated that he was not bluffing.

The White House has said it accepts Russia’s threats of nuclear war seriously but does not see signs of a present danger. Biden warned of the “prospect of Armageddon” if Russia used atomic weapons.

“The whole point I was making existed. It could become the leader to just a horrible outcome,” Biden stated, referencing his comments.

“And not because anybody plans to turn it into a world war or anything, but you using a nuclear spear, the mistakes that can be made, the miscalculations. Who knows what would happen?”

Biden added that he regarded Putin as a “rational actor who is miscalculated significantly.”

He stated that he thinks Putin is rational, but his objectives are not, and added that he believes the Russian leader is committing war crimes in Ukraine. “He’s acted brutally. I think he’s committed war crimes.”

On Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, Biden added, “I think he thought he was going to be welcomed with open arms. That this was, this has been, the home of Mother Russia and Kyiv, and he was going to be welcomed.” “I think he just totally miscalculated it.”

Leaders of the Group of 7 met Tuesday morning virtually with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. They agreed they would continue to back the besieged government against Russian aggression for “as long as it takes.”

In a statement released following the meeting, G-7 leaders said Russia would face “severe consequences” if it used chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.
