He also said Moscow will continue the so-called “special military operation in Ukraine” until the set goals are achieved, despite the peace negotiations held in Turkey on Tuesday.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, spoke at the NATO summit last Thursday and said that Ukraine needs military assistance without limitations, just as without limits, as Russia has used its entire military arsenal against Ukraine.
Zelensky asked NATO representatives for combat aircraft and tanks, both on a reimbursable and non-reimbursable basis, to prevent deaths among innocent Ukrainians, which would also unblock the cities surrounded by Russian troops.
Dmitry Polyanskiy, the Russian deputy ambassador to the UN, warned that if NATO provokes Moscow they have the right to use nuclear weapons, last Thursday following Zelensky’s address to the summit.
This comes after Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov said last Wednesday that they will not rule out using nuclear weapons in the face of an “existential threat.”
Sky News asked Polyanskiy if Putin was right to hold the prospect of nuclear war over the rest of the world, he said, “If Russia is provoked by NATO, if Russia is attacked by NATO, why not, we are a nuclear power.”
