Russian state TV has encouraged how Putin could launch a nuclear attack on Europe that would take only 200 seconds and leave “no survivors”.
Kremlin propagandists make nuclear explosions on three European capitals, claiming that the rockets Paris, Berlin and London in just three minutes.
Hosts responded to remarks by the UK’s Armed Forces minister who said he supported Ukrainian strikes on Russia’s infrastructure when the discussion took a dark turn.
Rodina National Party chairman Aleksey Zhuravlyov described what would happen if Putin launched nuclear weapons against the United Kingdom, saying, “One Sarmat rocket and the British Isles will no longer be there.”
Producers on the show then showed viewers a map that appeared to suggest that rockets could be launched from Kaliningrad, the Russian enclave between Poland, Lithuania and the Baltic Sea.
It suggested that this could reach Berlin in 106 seconds, Paris in 200 seconds and London in 202 seconds.
The scary clip was shown on Channel One’s 60 Minutes program – one of the most popular shows in Russia – hosted by husband and wife Olga Skabeyeva and Evgeny Popov.
When Skabeyeva, nicknamed “Putin TV’s Iron Doll” for her criticism of opposition parties, warned ‘but we are serious people’, the politician retorted and said, ‘I say that seriously.’
This prompted Popov to point out that the United Kingdom also has nuclear weapons.
‘No one will survive this war if you imagine the strike with a Sarmatian. Do you understand that no one will survive? No one on the planet, ‘he said.
Zhuravlyov doubled down, declaring ‘we will start with a low level’, before saying that the rockets ‘can not be intercepted’.
‘Their capabilities are limited. They say they can drop it, we’ll see, ‘he said.
Zhuravlyov is chairman of the Rodina Political Party, an extreme right-wing nationalist party that supports Vladimir Putin in the Douma.
In a tweet sharing the video with a Western audience, Julia Davies, maker of Russian Media Monitor, said: ‘Russian TV continues to threaten nuclear attacks against Western peoples, desperately trying to stop them from continuing to help Ukraine.
‘On a side note, this is the first state TV host who does not appear to be enthusiastic about dying for the homeland, arguing with a trigger-happy legislator.’
Earlier this week, there was another heated discussion on state television, in which a top broadcaster said nuclear war is ‘likely’ and we will all ‘die once’.
It came a day after Putin promised to respond with lightning speed‘To countries trying to interfere with his war in Ukraine, say politicians in St. Petersburg:’ We have not created, we will use them ‘, in an apparent reference to its nuclear arsenal.
And earlier this month, the isolated despot informed the world that Russia was ready to deploy their newly tested ultra-advanced intercontinental missile – nicknamed Satan II by the West – said to be able to destroy an area twice the size of the United Kingdom.
The US and the UK have such rhetoric rejected as supposed rattles, but the increasing frequency offers a bleak view of how the world is being shaped by the invasion of Ukraine.
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is of the opinion that the conflict could last 10 years – Putin marks as a ‘desperate rogue operator’.
It is reported Putin is set to declare ‘all-out war’ on Ukraine ‘within days’ to enable the country to launch a general population mobilization, according to Russian sources and Western officials.
Although he launched the bloody invasion in February, Moscow banned its media from using the term ‘war’ and acknowledged that it was a ‘special military operation’ to demilitarize and Ukraine ‘denazify’.
However, Russian military officials are said to be angry about the failure of Kyiv and reducing the conflict to focus on the east of the country.
It is feared that Putin may use the parade of Russia’s victory day on May 9 to announce the massive mobilization of his reserves for a final push in Ukraine.
