A Russian state TV pundit has called for Britain to be bombed ‘back to the Stone Age’ with missile strikes on the country’s power stations.
Yaakov Kedmi, a Moscow-born former Israeli diplomat, said Russia’s new hypersonic Zircon missile should be deployed to wipe out 50 or 60 power stations in the UK ‘in ten minutes’, plunging the country into darkness.
Kedmi, speaking on one of Russia’s most-watched talk shows, said it would be ‘overkill’ to use the Sarmat missile – which is said to be capable of carrying 12 nuclear warheads – on Britain.
Instead, he said, the UK should be targeted with the 6,670mph Zircon missiles.
Politician Aleksey Zhuravlyov and another TV propagandist Dmitry Kiselyov had earlier advocated striking Britain with the Sarmat missile, also known as Satan-2.
