Vitali Klitschko, the former world heavyweight boxing champion who’s now mayor of Kyiv, said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s threats to use nuclear arms in Ukraine were only a “big bluff.

“If Putin talks about nuclear weapon, it shows a weakness” because his “army isn’t successful in the east or south” of Ukraine, Klitschko told Bloomberg Television on Thursday.
