Russia is being monitored closely for any signs of an order given by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, Politico reports, citing five unnamed current and former U.S. officials.

Putin's threat of a nuclear strike on Ukraine or even NATO, long dismissed as a bluff, is beginning to be taken more seriously after he stressed that attacks on Ukrainian territories annexed by Russia in sham referendums would be considered as attacks on Russia itself.
