A TV propagandist for Vladimir Putin’s regime in Russia has claimed the country should attack England with a nuclear missile but do no harm to Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales.
Chorusman Vladimir Solovyov said Russia should avoid attacking Northern Ireland with the country’s Satan 2 missile and claimed there would soon be a united Ireland at “demand” by US President Biden.
In May, Mr Solovyov – a presenter for state broadcaster Russia-1 – boasted that Russia’s nuclear arsenal of hypersonic Sarmat missiles could destroy the UK in seconds, saying: “One Sarmat means minus one Britain.”
In his final remarks, the presenter said only England would face the wrath of the 15,880mph ICBM when asked if it would take just one warhead to destroy Britain.
“We will not touch Scotland. Scotland will be independent,” Solovyov replied.
“Wales has been quiet so far. Wales will also be independent. And at Biden’s request, Northern Ireland will unite with Ireland.
“The Union Jack will be over.”
Personally decorated by Putin, Solovyov accused the British government and the British armed forces chief, Admiral Tony Radakin, of being “arrogant, ignorant, uneducated upstarts who can do nothing but steal”.
“Listen Brits, wake up. The only reason you don’t have Egyptian pyramids in the British Museum is because you couldn’t physically steal them.
“You stole everything.
“Admiral Tony Radakin, whose admiral are you? what have you achieved When did your British guns hit someone?
“Who did you hit and where, Admiral?
You’ve completely lost your mind. And they teach us, the country [we can destroy with] a Sarmat.”
The latest outbreak comes amid a spate of threats against Britain and Ireland broadcast on Russian state television in the months following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.
In April, Russian state television showed a simulation of a nuclear attack that devastated Ireland and Britain.
At the time, Taoiseach Micheál Martin condemned the staging, calling the act “intimidating” and calling on Russian television or “whoever instigated it” to apologize.
