Britain is to be bombarded in ten minutes with Vladimir Putin’s “Unstoppable” “Back to the Stone Age”. 7,000 mph hypersonic nuclear missiles, said the Russian state television.
A Kremlin mouthpiece has threatened to use Moscow’s new Zirzon weapons system to plunge the country into permanent darkness by wiping out 50 or 60 power plants.
The latest warning from the Kremlin-controlled media came in a “propaganda” show hosted by Vladimir Solovyov – also known as “Putin’s Voice” – with controversial Moscow-born Israeli expert Yaakov Kedmi.
Kedmi once described Stalin as “the last statesman to look after his country”.
The threats to use strategic weapons come amid anger in Russia over what is seen as Britain leading the West in supplying arms to Ukraine in a “proxy war” against Putin.
In an outburst on the Rossiya 1 channel, Kedmi claimed that deploying the big monster Satan-2 would be “too good” for Britain, and instead advocated a submarine missile salvo using Zircon missiles.
Politician Aleksey Zhuravlyov and another TV propagandist, Dmitry Kiselyov, had previously suggested attacking Britain with Satan-2, known to Russians as Sarmat.
Zhuravlyov threatened to atomize Britain with his Satan 2 hypersonic missile in 200 seconds and obliterate Finland in just 10 seconds.
Close Putin ally Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, has also warned that NATO countries could be destroyed within half an hour in a nuclear attack.
But Kedmi told viewers: “It’s overkill.
“Sarmat [Satan-2] is too good and too big for Britain.
“There is no need to use [such a big weapon] for Britain at all.”
The UK could be devastated without a nuclear attack, he said, before endorsing the use of zircon, which is designed for nuclear attack.
“One or a half launches from a multipurpose submarine with zircons will be enough,” Kedmi said.
“About 50 or 60 of Britain’s power stations will be out in ten minutes.
“And all of Britain will return to the Stone Age. Nothing more is needed within ten minutes. In ten minutes it goes back to the Stone Age.”
In March, Russia released startling new footage of its 11,000 km/h Zircon hypersonic nuclear missile.
The Kremlin has previously branded the deadly weapon, which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead, as “unstoppable.”
VLAD’S NUKE THREAT
It comes after Russian state television threatened to wipe “rude Britain” off the map with Putin’s 16,000mph “Satan 2” nuclear bomb for supporting Ukraine.
The RS-28 Sarmat doomsday missile can fly more than 11,000 miles, carry 15 warheads and has the potential to wipe out an area the size of Britain in a single strike.
Meanwhile, Putin has warned against using nuclear weapons against the West if anyone in Ukraine interferes.
The Russian tyrant said the response to retaliation would be “lightning quick”.
But despite his desire to destroy Britain, Kedmi, a regular on Russian state television political talk shows, sent his youngest son to London Business School.
Zvezda TV — a channel run by Putin’s defense ministry — said Zircon’s speed is “so high that it prevents the enemy’s air defense system from detecting its impact in time.”
“In fact, its launch is only known after the target is hit.”
Putin said in December after a “successful” test: “Zircons are our newest sea-launched missiles at sea and land targets.
“The tests were carried out successfully and without errors.
“This is a great event for our country, a significant step towards improving Russia’s security, increasing (our) defense capabilities.”
Satan-2, scheduled for deployment this year, is a 208-ton hypersonic ICBM “Satan-2” capable of hitting targets at speeds of 25,880 km/h.
