Vladimir Putin could force Joe Biden’s America to intervene in the Ukraine war if the Kremlin deploys nuclear weapons, a retired US Navy admiral warned. Russia has conducted missile exercises, with the latest one including a possible test of a new nuclear-powered torpedo in recent weeks. A nuclear strike on Ukrainian territory would plunge the world into a full-blown Third World War, Retired US Navy Admiral Mike Mullen said.Speaking to PBS’s Amanpour programme, retired US Navy Admiral Mike Mullen said: “It’s just a really dangerous time, quite frankly. “And this war needs an end without those weapons being used.”I fear greatly that actually if those weapons come out, we are pretty close to World War III and a war with Russia – no longer just Ukraine and Russia. “It’s the US and Russia.”Despite growing internal pressure on Vladimir Putin, the retired admiral said he believes the Russian leader is going to stay in power. The only way the war will come to an end, he said, is through a negotiated settlement between Ukraine and Russia.”I’m on that believes Putin’s going to stay in power. There are people that would like to see him go. I just don’t think that’s going to happen,” admiral Mullen said.”Every war comes to an end. Every war typically comes to a negotiated end. “And there needs to be guidelines and boundaries that gets created into which a negotiation can occur – not least of which, before Putin is so desperate that he might pull the trigger on a nuclear weapon.”READ MORE: Wagner mercenary boss rages at prisoner executed trying to desertRussia raised the spectre of a potentialy deployment of nuclear weapons in recent weeks with nuclear-powered vessel exercises.
