As the mounting tensions between Russia and Ukraine rose to a catastrophic, earth-shattering head last night — with Russia’s dictatorial leader essentially declaring war on the country of Ukraine directly following an announcement regarding “a “special military action” against Ukraine and subsequently launching missiles on the capital of Kyiv just moments after — the Russian dictator is now publicly pushing spine-chilling threats to any nation who dares to retaliate against his heinous actions.

According to a chilling new report from The Telegraph, Russian dictatorial President Vladimir Putin released a deeply unsettling warning following his Ukrainian invasion and attack, seemingly threatening the possibility of a nuclear strike attack against any nation that may try to attack Russia in retaliation for what they have done in Ukraine.

The Russian president plainly and publicly warned that the “consequences” of any attempted retaliation against Russia would provoke a response from him “never seen in history.”

The dictator stopped just short, barely, of outright confirming that he would deploy nuclear weapons should Russian forces be attacked by any nation other than Ukraine. However, numerous analysts believe what we all know in our hearts to be true — that Putin’s implicit threat was of the nuclear variety.

Broadcast across live television at 5:45 AM Moscow time, Vladimir Putin warned:

Whoever tries to impede us, let alone create threats for our country and its people, must know that the Russian response will be immediate and lead to the consequences you have never seen in history.

All relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you hear me.”

The Russian dictator ensured that he left listeners with a stark, sobering reminder of his country’s nuclear capabilities, warning “no one should have any doubts that a direct attack on our country will lead to the destruction and horrible consequences for any potential aggressor.”

As noted by The Telegraph, “The address amounted to a declaration of war on Ukraine, with the aerial bombardment and invasion following shortly after.”

From Washington, US President Joe Biden has warned that the United States and its allies will respond to the Ukrainian invasion and attack in a “united and decisive way.” President Biden, who will address the nation on the subject later today, stated “The world will hold Russia accountable.”

This could very well change life as we know it.
