Russia says World War III has already begun

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

An ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin has said on state TV that World War III is already underway.

Vladimir Solovyov, a state TV host and one of the most well-known figures in Kremlin-backed media, made the remarks on the Russia-1 channel. An excerpt of the broadcast was shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, by Anton Gerashchenko, a former adviser to Ukraine’s minister of internal affairs. “Russia has no intentions of any real negotiations or peace. It is bloodthirsty,” wrote Gerashchenko on Tuesday.

Kremlin propagandists have routinely warned of a looming world war. Ties between Washington and Moscow have become increasingly strained over Putin’s decision to launch a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Russian officials and guests on state TV regularly call for strikes on U.S. soil and the West over aid and weapons provided by the Joe Biden administration and other NATO members to Kyiv. Newsweek has emailed NATO representatives for comment on Solovyov’s words.

The propagandist continued this rhetoric in his latest tirade against the West this week. He called for strikes on military targets in NATO nations in response to recent decisions by some member states to authorize Ukraine to use donated weapons to attack targets inside Russia.
