Joe Biden, the President of the United States, issued a stern warning to Russia, telling them that unleashing nuclear weapons in Ukraine would be a “very grave error.” Earlier, the administration of President Joe Biden stated that Russia had informed them that it intended to conduct routine drills of its nuclear capabilities. At the same time, the operator of Ukraine’s nuclear energy plant asserted that Russia’s neighbour was conducting some kind of covert work at the nuclear power plant that is the largest in Europe.
Biden told reporters gathered in the press room of the White House on Tuesday, “Let me just say: Russia would be making an enormously severe mistake if it were to deploy a tactical nuclear bomb.”
He was replying to a question on whether Russia was planning to deploy a “dirty bomb” or a nuclear weapon, and the question had asked him if Russia was doing either. But doing so would be a grave, grave error in judgement,” Senator Biden said.
The press secretary at the White House, Karine Jean-Pierre, said that the President was clear about what he said. “He made that point clear one again today. It would be a grave error on Russia’s part to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, which would result in very negative repercussions. “Look, Russia is spreading charges that are obviously incorrect, and one of those allegations is the possibility that dirty bombs were used,” she said.
You were able to hear me say that. You may have overheard one of my colleagues at the State Department stating the other day that Ukraine is getting ready to detonate a dirty bomb on its own soil. We categorically refute these charges made by Russia as being untrue.
Jean-Pierre, on the other hand, said that the United States has not seen Russia making any preparations along such lines, but he emphasised that the United States would continue to watch the situation “very, very attentively.”
She issued a warning about the repercussions for Russia and then stated, “I’m definitely not going to lay them out here.” Also, just so you know, we have been in conversation with them personally. Simply said, I’m not going to jump the gun on any talks about the plans that we’ve outlined for the Russians.
In response to a query on potential peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, Jean-Pierre said that it was up to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the current president of Ukraine, to negotiate. Jean-Pierre has said that Zelenskyy will be the one to make that choice for his nation.
