Takeo (FN), Mar. 2 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen projected that if the Russia-Ukraine war leads to nuclear war, most countries in Europe, the US and Russia will be devastated, speaking in an inauguration ceremony for the official use of National Road No. 3 in Takeo province on Wednesday.

"In this current situation, if the nuclear war began, everything will be over,” the premier said.

On 27 February 2022, many Europe countries have imposed sanctions on Russia and even provided military weapons to assist Ukraine in battling against Russia. In response, Russian president Vladimir Putin potentially issued a directive to increase the readiness of Russia’s nuclear weapons.
