Russia threatened that it would escalate its war on Ukraine by showing a Russian Channel One video that showed Russian missiles reaching Paris and Berlin. According to the UK’s Express 60 Minutes program, Channel One’s 60 Minutes featured Aleksey Zauravlyov (the chairman of the nationalist Rodina Party). He suggested that Russia could launch an attack on the UK with its Sarmat missiles.
Zhuravlyov said, “One Sarmat [missile] suffices – the British Isles won’t exist anymore.” Evgeny Popov replied, “No one will be able to survive this war if you propose the strike using the Sarmat. Zhuravlyov seemed unaffected. He stated optimistically that he would start with a blank sheet and claimed that Russian missiles cannot be stopped. We will wait and see.
Olga Skabeyeva, Popov’s spouse, was the second host of the show at that time. She stated that “Sarmats are not yet arriving in Kaliningrad.” It takes 106 seconds from Kaliningrad to Berlin to Paris. It takes 200 seconds from Kaliningrad to Paris. Zhuravlyov smiled and said, “They should be shown that image.”
James Stephen Heappey, the British Parliamentary Undersecretary for State for Armed Forces, stated that Ukraine should strike within Russia. It is legal for Ukraine’s to strike in Russia’s deep to disrupt logistics. If they were not disrupted, it would directly contribute to death and destruction on Ukrainian soil.” He also supported the importation of weaponry from other nations: “There are many countries all over the world that have kits that they purchased from other countries.” We don’t blame those who use these bits of equipment.
Maria Zakharova (Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson) wondered if NATO would accept Russia’s actions. Do we know that Russia is able to strike military targets on the territory of NATO nations that supply ammunition and arms to the Kyiv Regime?” “This directly causes bloodshed on Ukrainian territory.
Russia’s Defense Ministry made another threat. “We want to emphasize that London’s direct provocation of the Kyiv Regime in such actions, should they be taken, will result in our proportional reaction. We warned that Russian armed forces are always ready to launch retaliatory strikes with high-precision long-range weapons at decision-making centres in Kyiv. If necessary, we will use them. ”
When he declared war on Afghanistan, he repeated the same words.
