RUSSIAN TV LISTS NUCLEAR TARGETS IN US AFTER PUTIN’S ‘MISSILE CRISIS’ THREAT
During the broadcast, Dmitry Kiselyov, presenter of TV news show “Vesti Nedeli,” showed a map of the United States and identified targets, including the Pentagon, Fort Ritchie--a military training center closed in 1998, McClellan--an Air Force base closed in 2001, and Jim Creek--a naval communications base.
Kiselyov said: “For now, we’re not threatening anyone, but if such a deployment takes place, our response will be instant.”
Kiselyov is a main conduit of the state television’s anti-American tone, who once said Moscow could turn the United States into radioactive ash.
When asked to comment, the Kremlin said it did not interfere in the state TV’s editorial policy.
