Vladimir Putin’s top propagandist has called for London to be “turned to dust”.
Kremlin acolyte Vladimir Solovyov has urged Russia to destroy the UK capital in a deranged rant on state TV after Ukraine said it would be using British missiles in the war with Moscow.
Thursday’s (16.02.23) programme featured a discussion of a report in The Sun newspaper that explained that Kyiv would use the Storm Shadow missile if the UK was willing to provide it.
Solovyov raised his hand and stared manically at the camera, before saying: “London will turn to dust! To dust.”
Putin’s mouthpiece then switched to English and shouted “Burn in hell!” and “Flames!”
He also raged: “The British press is saying, ‘We’ll give them hell!’ I’m quoting verbatim from their most popular paper The Sun.
“They all regard this as completely fine – ‘Russians can and need to be killed’. They’re saying that constantly.
“There’s one problem with Russians. They won’t give up as easily as that.”
Solovyov and other Kremlin allies have threatened nuclear strikes on the West for their support of Ukraine in the conflict and he previously accused Germany of joining the war after they agreed to send tanks to Kyiv.
He said: “It’s time to send a clear, resolute message that we now consider Germany a direct party to the conflict, rekindling memories of World War Two.
“German tanks appearing [in Ukraine] will definitely mean we consider German territory, military bases and other sites as legitimate targets.”
