Russian state TV claims Putin is more likely to launch nuclear war than accept defeat in Ukraine

Russian state TV claims Putin is more likely to launch nuclear war than accept defeat in Ukraine

President Vladimir Putin is prone to launch nuclear warfare moderately than concede defeat to Ukraine, a top Russian state TV editor has stated.

Margarita Simonyan, editor of state broadcaster RT and one of many Kremlin’s highest-profile media bosses, made the remarks on TV on Wednesday evening, declaring that Mr. Putin unleashing a nuclear strike is “more possible” than failing its so-called special army operation in Ukraine.

The remarks comply with Russia’s continuous warning to the west of “lightning quick” consequences over interfering in its ongoing invasion.

“Either we lose in Ukraine,” Ms Simonyan stated, “or the Third World War begins. I believe World War Three is more reasonable, realizing us, knowing our leader.

“The most unimaginable consequence, that every one it will end with a nuclear strike, appears more possible to me than the other course of events.

“This is to my horror on one hand,” she instructed a panel of specialists, “but however, it’s what it’s. We are going to go to heaven, while they may merely croak… We’re all going to die someday.”

Ms. Simonyan’s nuclear conflict reference follows current comments by Russian overseas minister Sergei Lavrov, who stated the threat of a nuclear battle should not be underestimated and that the core of any settlement to end the battle in Ukraine would rely largely on the military state of affairs on the ground.

“That is our key position on which we base every thing. The dangers now are appreciable,” Mr Lavrov stated on state TV on Tuesday.

“I would not wish to elevate those dangers artificially. Many would like that. The danger is severe, real. And we should not underestimate it,” he stated, referring to the danger of nuclear conflict.

Mr Putin, while issuing a warning to western nations over interfering in the conflict, referenced Russia’s new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Devil.

“We have all the tools for this — ones that nobody can brag about. And we won’t brag. We are going to use them if needed. And I want everyone to know this,” Mr Putin stated. “We have already taken all the choices on this.”
