Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is bluffing about the possibility of using nuclear weapons.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, Gabrielius Landsbergis, reported by LRT.

"He gains nothing from this but loses everything. Some countries are on his side, or so he thinks. China clearly supports Russia, global partners in Latin America, Africa are also more likely on Putin's side. But if threats become a reality, all partnership will disappear in an instant," he said.

Landsbergis hinted that the position taken by some leading states to avoid escalation could turn out to be disastrous.

"This path, if followed by our strategy, leads to the destruction of the country. It can lead to a real conflict already beyond Ukraine, other countries may be involved. Because we are sending Putin a very clear signal: if you threaten us, we retreat," the minister said.
