(GoRealNewsNow.com) – NEWS NOW: A lawmaker from Russia wants a Russian missile strike against Alaska in response to a comment by Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham.
Andrey Gurulyov, a member of the Duma, the lower house legislature, declared that Russia had missiles close to America’s northernmost state, which were “quite capable of scouring Alaska to the ground.”
He added that Moscow should move and use those missiles rather than wait for its enemies to attack, The New York Post reports.
Gurulyov made the latest Russian threats against the US on a news talk show hosted by Olga Skabeyeva, a presenter called the “Iron Doll of Putin TV.”
“[It is] not for us to respond to the threats we are confronted with, but for them to rush around with no idea what to do next,” said the Russian lawmaker who has previously called for Moscow to wipe Britain “off the face of the Earth.”
“We have a strategic nuclear force that holds America’s territory. Let me remind you, there’s Alaska across the strait. It doesn’t take much, a couple of brigades will suffice,” he added.
Gurulyov enumerated different types of missiles that Putin’s Russia had in its arsenal. Skabeyeva supported him, adding Alaska should be attacked “to make them feel scared.”
On Friday, Ukraine’s former Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko posted a video of the exchange on Twitter.
On that same day, Republican US Senator Linsey Graham of South Carolina met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv amid the full-scale war that Putin’s Russia has been waging on Ukraine for 15 months now.
A video of the meeting published by Zelensky’s office showed Graham saying, “And now the Russians are dying,” after which he was seen smiling and stating, “It’s the best money we’ve ever spent.”
A full transcript of the meeting revealed later that Graham’s comments didn’t come one after the other, and in the latter, he was referring to America’s support for Ukraine, not the “deaths” of the invading Russians.
