A Russian state news anchor warned that Great Britain could be “plunged into the sea” by an underwater nuclear strike if it continues supplying weapons to Ukraine.
News anchor Dmitry Kiselyov, known as “Putin’s mouthpiece”, explained over the weekend the chilling hypothetical scenario of tidal-wave producing underwater nuclear attack should the UK continue “playing games” with Russia over the Ukraine conflict.
“There’s no way of stopping this underwater drone. The warhead on it has a yield of up to 100 megatons. The explosion of this thermonuclear torpedo by Britain’s coastline will cause a giant tsunami wave up to 500 meters high. Such a barrage alone also carries extreme doses of radiation,” Kiselyov said.
“This tidal wave is also a carrier of extremely high doses of radiation. Surging over Britain, it will turn whatever is left of them into radioactive desert, unusable for anything. How do you like this prospect?”
Kiselyov is likely referring to Russia’s Poseidon warhead, a state-of-the-art nuclear torpedo launched from an unmanned submarine.
He then suggested that Russia’s intercontinental ballistic missile Sarmat aka the “Satan II” alone could render the UK into a “radioactive desert, unfit for anything for a long time.”
“Why do they threaten vast Russia with nuclear weapons while they are only a small island? The island is so small that one Sarmat missile is enough to drown it once and for all,” Kiselyov said.
“Russian missile Sarmat, the world most powerful is capable of destroying an area the size of Texas or England.”
“A single launch, Boris, and there is no England anymore. Once and for all. Why do they play games?” he added, taunting UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Since the UK is a member of the NATO alliance, such an attack by Russia would be reciprocated by the West in kind, plunging the world into a full-blown nuclear war.
This comes as the far-left New Yorker magazine acknowledged on Sunday that the U.S. is now locked in a “full proxy war with Russia” by sending billions of dollars in heavy weapons and equipment to Ukraine.
