Putin hopes there is no need for nuclear strike against ISIS
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in Moscow on Wednesday, during a meeting with Defense Minster Sergei Shoigu, that his country needs to use whatever means possible to defeat the global terror threat posed by ISIS.
"We certainly need to analyze everything that is happening on the battlefield," he said. "These are new, modern and highly effective high-precision weapons that can be equipped either with conventional or special nuclear warheads."
"Naturally, we do not need that in fighting terrorists, and I hope we will never need it," he added.
