Putin, a former British prime minister, has made explicit nuclear threats.

A number of the conversations between former British Prime Minister (PM) Boris Johnson and Russian President Vladimir Putin were made public, including those that were sent just before Russia attacked Ukraine militarily.

Johnson testified to the BBC that Putin had threatened him over the phone in February of last year. Johnson was at the time warning Putin that if he attacked Ukraine, Russia would suffer harsh repercussions from the West.
Putin allegedly responded extremely strongly as well. In actuality, this response was given despite Johnson emphasizing that Ukraine would not be permitted to join the NATO defense alliance anytime soon.
"At one point, Putin threatened me and said, 'Boris, I don't want to harm you, but it will just take a minute with missiles," or something similar "He reportedly said it on Monday, 30 January 2023.
Johnson claimed that despite this, they had a cordial conversation on the phone.
However, "I suspect he's just playing with my attempts to get him to negotiate, given the very comfortable tone he uses and the sort of detached mentality he seems to have."
Ben Wallace, the British defense secretary, traveled to Moscow to meet with Sergei Shoigu on February 11, nine days later. Wallace acknowledges that he left Russia following promises that the Kremlin wouldn't attack Ukraine, even though both parties thought this to be a lie.
"I would lie to you since you already know that I lied Wallace said the ideas that came to mind during the conversation: "I lied, and I'd still lie to you.
General Valery Gerasimov, the head of the Russian General Staff, reportedly declared that his nation will never again be humiliated as he exited the meeting, according to Wallace.
Outright lies have strengthened my conviction that the Russians would launch an attack, which is terrible enough.
Since February 24, 2022, Putin has personally assaulted Ukraine. He believed that Kyiv's desire to join NATO posed a danger to his nation.
Additionally, Putin wants to annex the former Ukrainian-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk. This was done to free the ethnic Russian community, which, according to him, was being persecuted by ultra-nationalist Ukrainian gangs.
