Ukraine news LATEST: Putin's crony DEMANDS nuclear strike on UK & threatens to turn Britain 'into a desert in 3 minutes' | The Sun

A RUSSIAN MP has urged Putin to launch a nuclear strike on the UK and turn Britain into a "Martian DESERT" on live state TV, reports say.

Vladimir Putin's evil Duma mouthpiece Andrey Gurulyov, former deputy commander of Russia's southern military district, made alarming threats against Britain, as well as Joe Biden and NATO.

When asked what Russia should be ready for in the Ukraine war, Gurulyov replied "victory", continuing: "Today I heard, 'If we don't win…' That is not an option, we will win."

He later continued: "Biden says there would be a reaction, per their Article 5, but if we turn the British Isles into a Martian desert in 3 minutes flat, using tactical nuclear weapons, not strategic ones, they could use Article 5, but for whom? A nonexistent country, turned into a Martian desert? They won't respond."

The Daily Beast's Julia Davis shared the video to her Twitter page on Sunday, postng: "Meanwhile in Russia, more of the usual: nuclear threats against Germany and Britain, cautioning NATO against going into Ukraine," she wrote as a caption.

    Russia denies mass civilian killing

    Last week, Ukraine uncovered a mass grave of over 440 people in the north-eastern city of Izyum that was recaptured as part of the operation.

    Though it’s not confirmed it was Russian troops, Ukraine said it was further evidence of war crimes committed by Russian forces.

    On Monday, Russian president Vladimir Putin’s spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, said: “It’s a lie.”

    Oleg Synegubov, governor of the Kharkiv region, said on Monday: “Some of the dead have signs of violent death, there are bodies with tied hands and traces of torture. The deceased were also found to have mine-explosive injuries, shrapnel and stab wounds.”

    The vast majority of those found were said to be civilians, including many children.

    Liberated villages lay abandoned

    Though few would argue Ukraine’s “re-capture” of land is a bad thing, few are returning back.

    Many mothers, children and elderly fled the war zones and are yet to return home. Though there’s a feeling of excitement, there’s concern there will still be attacks and explosives around.

    Some farmers in Velyki Prohody didn’t make it, but of those that survived the occupation were elderly, rather than children.

    An explosives expert checked the area and found a MON-50 anti-personnel mine in the grass near the village.

    These sort of mines were banned by an international convention. One that Russia didn’t sign up to.

    He said: “Imagine, this land is still full of shells from the Second World War.”
