British Prime Minister on Putin's nuclear blackmail: it won't work

British Prime Minister Liz Truss called Russian President Vladimir Putin's nuclear threats "arms rattling" and said that this blackmail "will not work."

As The Guardian reports , "European Truth" writes, she stated this in a speech at the UN General Assembly.

Truss spoke a few hours after the remote speech of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

At the beginning of the speech, Liz Truss noted that now geopolitics has entered a new era and this requires a principled and decisive position from countries that believe in the fundamental principles of the UN.

"This morning we have seen Putin trying to justify his catastrophic failures. He has decided to continue his efforts, sending even more reservists to a terrible fate. He is desperately trying to create the appearance of democracy for a regime for which human rights and freedoms do not exist. He is resorting to new bogus complaints and gun-rattling. It's not going to work," Liz Truss said.

She also promised to maintain and increase military support for Ukraine as long as necessary.

The Prime Minister of Britain called on the leaders of the countries not to make any compromises in favor of the Russian Federation, despite the difficulties due to sky-high energy prices.

She devoted a separate part of the speech to the confrontation between democratic and authoritarian models of the state, noting that democracies, in order to prove their viability and superiority, must find a way to ensure well-being and security for their citizens.

Before that, Truss, in a joint statement with the president of the European Commission, called Putin's decision to mobilize as evidence of the failure of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
