Anxious Netizens Cope With Memes As #nuclearwar Trends on Twitter After Putin’s Nuclear Threat
The hashtag '#nuclearwar' is trending on Twitter since Monday morning, with anxious netizens resorting to share memes and jokes to cope with the fear of the world witnessing a nuclear war.
Russian President Vladimir Putin dramatically escalated tensions with Ukraine on Sunday by ordering Russia’s nuclear forces to be on high alert. Citing “aggressive statements” by NATO and tough financial sanctions, Putin issued a directive to increase the readiness of Russia’s nuclear weapons, raising fears that the invasion of Ukraine could lead to nuclear war. Putin’s directive came as Russian forces encountered strong resistance from Ukraine defenders.
Earlier on Thursday, Putin issues a dire nuclear threat to Western nations saying they would face “consequences greater than any you have faced in history” if they become involved with his invasion of Ukraine. “To anyone who would consider interfering from the outside: if you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history. All relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you hear me,” Vladimir Putin said.
