President Vladimir Putin has warned the West to take Russia more seriously and that the threat of nuclear war is very real.
Putin has become increasingly frustrated by his military’s lack of progress, as well as prowess, during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – which has led to the president’s most recent threat of nuclear warfare.
“The Western world needs to listen to what I have to say very carefully. The fight against Nazism is going very well in Ukraine. Our army is the best in the world. It is not at all riddled with corruption.
“We are winning the hearts and minds of the people in Ukraine and all over the world. Your sanctions are not working.
“Remember, Russia has one of the biggest nuclear arsenals in the world. Each missile is primed and ready to launch at a moment’s notice,” said Putin.
Putin gave this statement while flying a small “nuclear device” around the room and making whooshing noises.
Rumours that the Russian president has lost his mind remain unconfirmed at this time.
