Russian state TV threatens UK and US

The latest comments were made by guests on the show Evening with Vladimir Solovyov on state-owned Russia-1 TV channel. A video of the discussion with English subtitles was posted on Twitter on Tuesday 14 March by Francis Scarr of BBC Monitoring.

Retired Russian general Yevgeny Buzhinsky begun by saying:

We’ve got weapons like Poseidon, well, and Burevestnik

To which host Vladimir Solovyov responded:

I would like to see Poseidon in action!
And I’d like to see Sarmat in action too!

Buzhinsky then threatened a Poseidon missile strike which will cause a tsunami, a threat that has been made before:

You know, if we are to believe Orban, if they’re really about to deploy troops, well it will all end with Poseidon and a tsunami, a 300 or 500 metre wave.

Solovyov responded:

And then, Great Britain will be no more!

To which Buzhinsky said:

Yes, Great Britain will definitely be no more. I’m talking about the United States.

Solovyov then asked, referring to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and French President Emmanuel Macron:

And if Sunak is washed away, who will Macron have left to kiss?

The head of RT channel Margarita Simonyan responded in Russian 'opyat s Trudeau' which means 'Trudeau again!', referring to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It is also a play on the Russian phrase 'Opyat s trudom', which means 'with difficulty again', as Solovyov pointed out, laughing:

Trudeau again, yes. With difficulty again!
