Putins nuclear threat to UK as he claims special forces are playing with fire
Vladimir Putin has admitted his words could be seen as a nuclear threat after he alleged Rishi Sunak may be ignorant of the work of British special services in Ukraine.
The Kremlin dictator accused the UK’s special forces of training Ukrainian hit teams to damage atomic power lines on his territory before he sensationally threatened dire consequences.
Speaking in Vladivostok, he claimed his FSB security service had interrogated a Ukrainian team operating inside Russia and added they were trained by "British instructors".

“It turned out to be a sabotage group of Ukrainian special services,” he said at the 2023 Eastern Economic Summit.
“Interrogation showed they had been tasked to damage one of our nuclear stations by exploding a power line… to damage the work of the power plant.
“And this is not the first attempt.”
He alleged: “During interrogation, they admitted they were trained under supervision of British instructors. Do [the British] understand what they are playing with, or not?
“Are they provoking our response at Ukrainian nuclear sites, nuclear stations, or what?
“Does the British leadership, or the Prime Minister [of the United Kingdom] know what their special services are engaged with in Ukraine?
"Or do they have no clue at all? I assume this is possible, too.

“I assume it is possible British special services act on the orders of the Americans. Either way, we know the final beneficiary. But do they realise what they are playing with?
“I am afraid they simply underestimate…. I know there will be howling that starts after my words like ‘These are threats!’, ‘Nuclear blackmail!’, and so on.”
Putin, a former KGB spy in the Cold War, told his audience: “I assure you this is the total pure truth.
“So these guys are telling this to us during interrogation. I know some can say: ‘They will say anything under a gun’. This is not true.
“And the leadership of the British special services knows I am telling the truth. But I am not sure the leadership of Great Britain understands what’s going on.
“These kinds of things are seriously concerning, because they [the UK] don’t feel the ground – which can lead to serious consequences.”
Putin did not specify which branch of British special services he was alleging had trained the Ukrainian sabotage team.
