According to him, today the nuclear missiles are the main argument of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to blackmail the West.

“Nuclear power of Russia is greatly exaggerated. Devil is not so terrible as he is painted. But today, nuclear weapons are the main element of blackmail by Putin the whole civilized world. And unfortunately, with this argument the civilized world is forced to reckon, since the threat of nuclear war deters all, and all are well aware of how it would end,” – said Shkiryak.

He also commented on the words of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, who in a recent interview threatened the US with nuclear weapons. He believes that in fact, for all its mesedzh is Putin.

“I think that all mesedzh Kadyrov is Putin. Of course, that the Russian dictator is unlikely to say such outright stupidity. Kadyrov, as a political son, this puppet of Putin, he is allowed and sometimes give instructions to make such information provocation. So Kadyrov’s statement should not be taken seriously. To expect from him something clever is hardly necessary. You shouldn’t let these horror stories, intimidation attention”, – said Shkiryak.

Recently, Kadyrov called gays “devils” (in Muslim mythology, an evil spirit, the devil) and “inhumans.”
