A senior Ukrainian official warned last month that Putin may well launch a tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine if he thinks he is going to lose the war.

Oleksandr Lytvynenko, Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, suggested that Putin could end up using a tactical nuclear weapon, most likely on Kyiv.

During an interview with The Times Lytvynenko believes that the Russian despot would use such a weapon as “Russia is on the verge of a catastrophic defeat.”

He was asked in what circumstances does he believe Putin would use a nuclear weapon, he gave a grim warning saying, “We cannot rule out anything if Russia is on the verge of catastrophic defeat.”
