A Russian military general has called on Moscow to unleash a nuclear torpedo against the United States and the United Kingdom amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Ret. Gen. Yevgeny Buzhinsky, 72, who chairs a military think-tank in Moscow, the Russian Center for Policy Research, spoke on a talk show on the Russia 1 television hosted by Vladimir Solovyov, the most notorious propagandist of Vladimir Putin’s regime.
According to Buzhinsky, Russia should attack America’s coasts with the nuclear torpedo Poseidon, which Moscow claims would unleash a 1,000-feet high tsunami of radioactive water.
He added that US ally Britain should also be hit with the nuclear torpedo, upon which it would “cease to exist.”
“Poseidon has already been tested,” the retired Russian general said on the show.
Host Solovyov asked him whether he would like to see the nuclear torpedo in action against the United States.
“We would like to, of course,” Buzhinsky replied, as cited by Newsweek and Newsmax.
In January, the Russian state-run agency TASS reported that the first Poseidon nuclear-capable super torpedoes had been produced.
It said the drone torpedoes had unlimited range because they were nuclear-powered. They can carry a 2-megaton nuclear-tipped warhead or conventional munitions.
“The first batch of Poseidon ammunition has been manufactured and will be soon delivered to special-purpose, nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod,” TASS reported, quoting an anonymous source close to the Russian military industry.
Buzhinsky declared that the continuing Western aid to Ukraine, which has been fighting off a Russian invasion for almost 13 months now, could mean that it would “all end with Poseidon and a tsunami, a 300 or 500-meter wave.”
“And then Great Britain will be no more,” host Solovyov reacted.
Recent reports claimed that Solovyov’s 20-year-old son works as a model in London.
“Yes, Great Britain will definitely be no more. I’m talking about the United States,” Buzhinsky said.
Margarita Simonyan, the infamous head of the Russian international propaganda network RT (formerly “Russia Today”), was also on the show and weighed in.
“The UK will not be there. [It would be drowned] straight away,” she said.
Another TV Russian propagandist, Dmitry Kiselyov, has previously touted the effects of Poseidon, one of Putin’s alleged “superweapons,” which he previously presented with much-mocked cartoons.
“There is no way to stop this underwater drone,” Kiselyov claimed on state TV last year.
“It has a warhead with a capacity of up to 100 megatons. The explosion of this thermonuclear torpedo close to Britain’s shores will raise a giant wave, a tsunami. This tidal wave is also a carrier of extremely high doses of radiation. Surging over Britain, it will turn what is probably left of them into a radioactive desert. Permanently unusable for anything,” the Putin propagandist claimed.
