Putin makes nuclear threat as he declares ‘partial mobilization’ – follow live

Joe Biden condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as a “cruel, unnecessary war” in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly hours after Vladimir Putin threatened to use Moscow’s nuclear weapons in response to what he called “nuclear blackmail” called of the West.

The US president said Russia “tried to erase a sovereign state from the map and “blatantly violated the core principles of the United Nations charter”.

Putin previously announced a partial mobilization of 300,000 troops to bolster his forces, which have been pushed back by the Ukrainian military in recent weeks.

He also accused the West of considering the use of nuclear weapons against Russia and warned that Moscow would “use every means at our disposal” if threatened by the US, UK or EU.

“This is not a bluff. And those who are trying to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the weather vane can turn and point at them.”

Britain said President Putin’s mobilization of Russian military reservists is a “clear admission” that his invasion of Ukraine failed.
