Vladimir Putin says the threat of nuclear war is growing, but insists Russia is not “crazy” and will not use its nuclear weapons first.

Russia’s president has insisted his country will only use weapons of mass destruction in response to attacks.

Addressing the annual meeting of the Russian Human Rights Council, he also said a war in Ukraine could be a “long process”.

Western officials believe Putin originally planned a quick victory.
