Putin: Liz Truss is not herself, but Washington did not deliberately correct her

USA (bbabo.net), - Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that former British Prime Minister Liz Truss was "a little crazy" when she announced her readiness to use nuclear weapons.

“Mrs. Liz Truss said bluntly in a conversation with a member of the press that the UK is a nuclear power, it is the prime minister’s responsibility to make possible use and I will do it. This is not verbatim, but close to the text,” Putin said, speaking at the plenary session of the Valdai Discussion Club.

Putin stressed that no one commented on Truss's absurd words.

“And no one reacted in any way. Well, let's say she blurted out there, the girl is a little out of her mind, how can one say such things in public, but they would correct her. In Washington, they would publicly say: we have nothing to do with this, ”the president said.

And how should Russia react to such statements - to assume that this is an agreed position, Putin stressed.
