(TJV NEWS) Jared Evan A Russian state TV program made headlines across the United Kingdom after a television presenter featured a simulated demonstration of how the Russian navy’s nuclear submarines would take out the UK with ease. The initial topic of discussion was the UK’s financial support to Ukraine.
#Russia‘s state TV explicitly threatens to drown UK with a nuclear strike, the Sarmat missile, which is called the “Son of Satan.” Or a thermonuclear torpedo, which top propagandist Kiselyov says on the air, “will turn UK into a radioactive desert.” pic.twitter.com/UDomlAVcON

The segment aired late last week on public broadcaster “Channel One” and featured the chairman of the nationalist Rodina political party, Aleksey Zhuravlyov, who declared that “one Sarmat missile and the British Isles will be no more”, Newsweek summarized.
news anchor Dmitry Kiselyov described the following as a graphic of a submarine played behind him:
“It approaches its target at a depth of 1km at a speed of 200km/h. 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 gigantic tsunami wave up to 500m high.”
He then said the UK could be turned into “a radioactive desert” in the most provocative moment of the program:
“Such a barrage alone also carries extreme doses of radiation. Having passed over the British Isles, it will turn what might be left of them into a radioactive desert.”
