THE WEST must prepare for a Russian nuclear doomsday by stockpiling anti-radiation drugs and building shelters, Ukraine’s president has warned.
Volodymyr Zelensky’s chilling warning comes as Russia continues to amass forces in eastern Ukraine ahead of a major battle tipped to decide to fate of the war.
The deranged Russian ramped up his offensive on Ukraine after the flagship war vessel Moskva was downed on Thursday.
Putin’s forces unleashed a wave of artillery attacks on eight towns including Kyiv, Kharkiv and Lviv.
And it comes as Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told the US outlet that Moscow was prepared to use a nuclear weapon in Ukraine in the case of an “existential threat”.
President Zelensky told CNN on Friday: “We shouldn’t wait for the moment when Russia decides to use nuclear weapons… We must prepare for that.”
He said anti-radiation medicine and air raid shelters would be needed to repel the attack, which he was “convinced” was being planned.
“All of the world, all of the countries have to be worried because it can be not real information, but it can be truth,” Ukraine’s head of state said.
“Chemical weapons, they should do it, they could do it, for them the life of the people, nothing. That’s why.
