The United States’ President, Joe Biden says the world risks the highest level of nuclear threat since the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis.
According to the BBC, President Biden was reacting to the threat issued by Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin of using tactical nuclear weapon against Ukraine.
Mr Biden said President Putin’s threat should not be taken as a joke and stressed that the U.S was trying to figure out Mr Putin’s way out of the war.
Meanwhile, the European Union, E.U had previously said Mr Putin’s nuclear threat should be taken seriously.
Ukraine has been retaking territory occupied by Russia, including the four regions Russia illegally annexed recently.
