Putin: Chernobyl would be child’s play if “something happened” in Korea


Russian President Vladimir Putin said:  "I would make no secret about it, we are worried about the escalation on the Korean peninsula, because we are neighbors." He spoke at a joint news conference Monday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a trade fair in Germany.

"And if, God forbid, something happens, Chernobyl which we all know a lot about, may seem like a child's fairy tale. Is there such a threat or not? I think there is… I would urge everyone to calm down…” the Russian president concuded, praising the US decision to delay its next ICBM test.
