WorldPutin to ‘inevitably use nuclear weapons’ if Russia closer 'to brink of total defeat’


Should Ukraine turn the tide and win over Russia, general Vincent Desportes warned, Russian President Vladimir Putin would rather hit the nuclear button than lose the war.

Speaking to French broadcaster LCI, army general Vincent Desportes warned: “As much as we must be totally firm with Vladimir Putin, we must also be aware that if he is ever at the end of his rope, that is to say, if the Russian army is on the verge of total defeat, he will inevitably use nuclear weapons.”

“We have never seen a tyrant, a dictator give in at the end when he had important military capabilities.

“Napoleon at Waterloo launches his guard. Hitler launches his last troops of course.”
