Vladimir Putin‘s chief TV propagandist has called on Russia to strike London in a rant against Western nations and their support for Ukraine.
Vladimir Solovyov, who hosts shows on state-owned Russia-1, regularly unleashes tirades about how the country should wipe out its enemies with nuclear attacks.
His monologues have become increasingly hawkish since the Russian president launched the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, advocating for Moscow to sanction attacks against the West as Putin’s forces continue to struggle.
In his latest diatribe, Solovyov addressed the possibility of the British government sending warplanes to Ukraine. Kyiv has pleaded with Western nations for fighter jets amid reports Russia is planning a renewed onslaught to seize the country.
‘Can’t we finally strike at London? What is the problem?’ the host asked viewers of his Solovyov Live show, clips from which have since been translated.
