World War Three has already started, according to Russia ‘s State TV following the sinking of the Moskva.
The chilling statement from a leading television presenter came as it became clear Moscow has lost another high-flying GRU military intelligence agent in Ukraine, the latest blow to the Kremlin’s most elite spy service.
Olga Skabeyeva told Rossiya 1 channel viewers that
“what it’s escalated into can safely be called World War Three” and insisted “that’s entirely for sure.”
The propagandist presenter added:
“Now we’re definitely fighting against Nato infrastructure, if not Nato itself. We need to recognise that.”
It comes after the sinking of the Russian ship which sent the Kremlin’s main propaganda mouthpiece into meltdown last night.
Officials have not acknowledged Ukraine’s claims that it struck the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet with cruise missiles. The operation would signify one of Kyiv’s biggest military successes since the invasion began.
Captain Alexey Bogomolov, of the 25th separate regiment of GRU special forces (Stavropol), was killed in action in the conflict, it was revealed on Friday. Military commentator Dmitry Drozdenko said on separate state-run Channel 1:
“In actual fact a full-scale multi-level war is underway with the collective West. And the West has long been preparing for the war.”
Anchor Olesya Loseva, host of Vremya Pokazhet, told viewers that the West was now supplying “zillions of weapons” to Ukraine.
She argued that Ukraine was doing the West’s bidding by carrying out “yet more provocations, bloody, horrible, completely unthinkable.”
“force people to shudder once again and say that Russia Is a country which is unworthy of even being on the world map and that all Russians should simply be wiped off the face of the earth”.
