Heavy condemnation against Russia following nuclear threats 

The United State Secretary of State,  Antony Blinken has charged all UN Security Council members to “send a clear message” to Russia that it must quit its nuclear threats in the war in Ukraine.

This comes after the Russian President Vladimir Putin, earlier this week, said the country will “certainly use all means available to us” if its territory is threatened and to defend the country and its people.

In a  council session Thursday, Blinken criticised Russia’s attack and called on other countries to join in their strong rebukes of Russian assault in Ukraine.

“Every council member should send a clear message that these reckless nuclear threats must stop immediately,” he said.

Also, Blinken named different allegations of war crimes and other atrocities and called on countries that have yet to speak out forcefully against them as a taunt to international order.

Speaking to reporters, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba wryly said he planned to keep a “safe social distance” from his counterpart Sergey Lavrov. He also denounced Russia’s actions happening in his own country.

“There will be no peace without Justice. I am emphasising that none of the Russian crimes in Ukraine would have been possible without the crime of aggression against Ukraine committed by the Russian leadership. It cannot go unpunished and the only feasible way to put President Putin and his entourage on trial is to establish a special Tribunal for the crime of aggression against Ukraine.” he said.
