Duda does not believe that Russia will use nuclear weapons in Ukraine

Aug 10, 2023

Polish President Andrzej Duda doubts the likelihood of Russia using nuclear weapons against Ukraine but admits the possibility of an explosion at a nuclear power plant by the Russian occupiers.

He said this in an interview with The Washington Post.

"No, I don't think Russia will use nuclear weapons in Ukraine," Duda said, explaining that Russia's nuclear arsenal is under the collective control of many people, so the decision to strike should not be made by just one person.


"If someone asks me about the nuclear threat, I am much more concerned about potential problems with nuclear power plants in Ukraine," the Polish president said.

According to him, it is more likely that something could happen that would look like a nuclear accident.

"Because, in my opinion, in my opinion, the threat of an explosion (at a nuclear power plant - Ed.) is much greater than in the case of the use of nuclear weapons," the Polish president said.
