Kremlin propagandist Vladimir Solovyov has again invoked Armageddon on his TV show in which the consequences of a Russian defeat in Ukraine were discussed.

In a clip on his evening show on the Russia 1 channel, which was tweeted by journalist and Russia watcher Julia Davis, Solovyov listened to his guest Karen Shakhnazarov, a filmmaker, talk about how the war was now “a question of our destruction.”

Shakhnazarov wondered whether Russian people fully understood “the gravity of the threat” that the war’s outcome poses, and that the conflict was “a lot more complex and dangerous” than World War II.

Solovyov chimed in to say he hoped Ukraine understood that “if we lose, we are taking the whole world with us.”

“Let me remind you what the Supreme Commander said, ‘who needs the world if Russia isn’t in it?'” Solovyov said, referring to a quote by President Vladimir Putin.

The anchor then went on say that Russia should use its nuclear weapons, shed restrictions against testing and “convincingly demonstrate what we have.”
