Alexander Sladkov, a journalist for the state-run Russia-1 TV channel, called for an atomic bombing to cause “a crater the size of several regions”. In a post on social media to his 730,000 followers, the Kremlin propagandist warned that the time for the “last resort” may be approaching as some 40 countries including Britain, the United States and European powers move to arm Ukraine with weapons to fight Russia’s invasion. 

He said: “There is more and more talk about nuclear weapons, and Russia has much to say about it. We have a solution for Ukraine.

“There are several, yet we are getting reminded about the last resort – nuclear weapons.”

Parroting President Vladimir Putin’s claims that Russia’s so-called “military operation” in Ukraine was launched to “de-Nazify” the country, Sladkov said: “If no one is going to hear us, and 40 countries keep helping the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, we will have no way back.”

Sladkov is the latest Kremlin mouthpiece to publicly call for Russia to launch a nuclear attack as Moscow steps up its assault on the east of Ukraine. 

Margarita Simonyan, the editor of one of Kremlin’s most-watched propaganda stations RT, issued a chilling warning on Wednesday night that a nuclear strike is “probable”. 

Another state TV channel, Channel One, simulated a nuclear strike on Europe last week. 

The chilling clip showed how Putin could allegedly launch a nuclear attack that would take just 200 seconds to strike Paris, Berlin and London and leave “no survivors”.

Referencing the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War Two, Sladkov said that Russia would soon have “no choice” but to unleash a weapon capable of similar destruction to halt Western countries supporting Ukraine. 

He warned: “Everything is possible, and this is what the Americans teach us. Not that any of this will make it easier for Ukraine.”

He continued: “The Americans used nuclear weapons in Japan, in a demonstrative way.

“So us, Russians, will have to demonstratively do it in Ukraine to remove the issue with further confrontation with those known 40 countries.

“A crater the size of several regions will be a clear example of how serious is Russia’s appeal to Nato to get back to peace and harmony.

“But where will Ukraine go? Exactly where it’s heading right now, with the only difference that it’ll be fast, and cheaper for Russia.

“The Europeans and Americans can’t quite get it that one must not harass a neighbouring country with such a giant nuclear potential.

“Thinking about it, I remember just how easily the US used nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and how easily they nearly deployed them at Dien Bien Phu in 1954.”
