West will destroy Russian army if nuclear strike is launched against Ukraine, Borrell says

EU diplomatic chief Josep Borrell said the Western response to a potential nuclear strike on Ukraine would not be nuclear, but it would be such a powerful military answer that “the Russian army will be annihilated.”

“There is a nuclear threat, and Putin is saying that he's not bluffing. Well, he cannot afford bluffing. It has to be clear that the people who support Ukraine, and the EU, and the member states, the US, NATO are not bluffing either. Any nuclear attack against Ukraine will create an answer. Not a nuclear answer, but a powerful answer from the military side.”

For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron also said that France would not use nuclear weapons against Russia if it launched a nuclear strike against Ukraine:

“Our doctrine is based on the fundamental interests of the nation, and they are defined very clearly. If a nuclear missile strike were launched against Ukraine, these interests would not be called into question.”
