Biden: World facing nuclear Armageddon

United States President Joe Biden stated that the world is facing the "prospect of Armageddon" unseen since the Cuban Missile Crisis as Russia threatens to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Speaking at a fundraiser in New York, Biden said that Russian President Vladimir Putin is "not joking when he talks about the potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons" because his forces are currently "underperforming" in Ukraine.

"For the first time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have the threat of a nuclear weapon if in fact things continue down the path they are going. We are trying to figure out what is Putin’s off-ramp. Where does he find a way out?" Biden said. "I don't think there's any such thing as the ability to easily [use] a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon."
