President Putin is unpredictable, Navalny’s widow warns of possibility of using nuclear weapons

Widow of late Russian dissident alexei navalny warned of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s unpredictability and said he could not rule out the possibility that he would someday use nuclear weapons.

“I don’t know what to expect from him,” she told dpa. “He probably will.”

She likened the question to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, saying she did not expect Putin to attack at the time given the strong ties between the two countries. “But he has decided to do so. He continues to scare and terrorize people. No one knows what Putin will do next.”

After illegally occupying Crimea in 2014, President Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Navalnya said he did not know whether Putin really had a “strong strategy.”

The Navalny family has long been Russia’s most prominent opposition activist.

Navalny, a longtime staunch opponent of President Vladimir Putin, died on February 16 in a prisoner of war camp in the Siberian Arctic. It has not been independently established whether Navalny, 47, died of natural causes, as stated on his death certificate. However, his supporters claim he was murdered.

Navalny also commented on the recent arrests of several suspected Russian spies in Europe, which are a sign that Putin has been waging war by any means necessary in the heart of Europe for years. He said it was a further sign.

“Putin doesn’t start now, he’s been doing this all along. He starts wars and kills his opponents,” she said, adding that Putin’s presence was not a surprise to her. “I always thought there were a lot of Russian spies in Europe. Russian spies, that’s obvious.”
