The UK’s support for Ukraine prompted Russian state TV to simulate a terrifying nuclear strike on Europe, declaring in a televised rant that there would be “no survivors”. The Mirror reports that Vladimir Putin’s supporters recreated nuclear strikes on three European capitals on TV, claiming that nuclear weapons would hit Paris, Berlin and London in around 200 seconds.
In response to UK Armed Forces Minister’s comments in support of Ukrainian attacks on Russia, hosts of Channel One’s 60 Minutes show claim nuclear weapons could hit European capitals less than four minutes after launch . The terrifying claims about Russian nuclear weapons were made on the popular TV show which is one of the most watched in the country.
It is hosted by wife and husband Olga Skabeyeva and Evgeny Popov, and guest Aleksey Zhuravlyov said, “One Sarmat (missile) and that’s it – the British Isles are no more.”
Skabeyeva, who has been dubbed the ‘Iron Doll of Putin TV’ for her criticism of opposition parties, warned ‘but we are serious people’ and was told he was ‘meaning this seriously’. They accuse us of state terrorism”.
Skabeyeva pointed out that the UK also has nuclear weapons and that “no one will survive this war”. The show then unveiled a map showing how the missiles could be launched from Kaliningrad, the Russian enclave between Poland, Lithuania and the Baltic Sea.
He claimed that Berlin could be destroyed by a nuclear strike in just 106 seconds, Paris in 200 seconds and London in 202 seconds. In response to the West’s continued support for Ukraine, Putin recently ordered his military to test its Sarmat missiles.
The United Kingdom and other Western countries provided equipment, military vehicles and weapons to the invaded country. Just last week, Putin claimed that his country’s hypersonic missiles could “break through all modern defences” and would be ready to besiege the UK “by the fall”.
