Russian state television alludes to nuclear strikes against Western capitals

As a reaction to Western leaders continuously inflaming the rhetoric against Russia, the Russian state broadcaster has now unmistakably brought up the possibility of Russian nuclear strikes against Western capitals in a video simulation.

    According to Rossiya 1, the Russian ballistic missile of the recently introduced newest type “Sarmat”, which would be launched from the Russian exclave Kaliningrad, could reach Berlin in 106 seconds, London in 202 and Paris in 200 seconds. It is an open secret, which the head of the Kremlin openly addressed when he presented this state-of-the-art intercontinental strategic weapon, that the West currently has no means of defending itself against it.

    Moscow recently successfully tested its state-of-the-art RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile which is said to be able to bypass any existing air defenses. The US and its NATO allies currently have no hypersonic weapons in service.

    A graphic showed in the programme (see picture) how Russian missiles can reach for example London within a very short time. “You have to look at this picture. Count the seconds! Can they do that?” a guest in the video commented and, addressing the West, added: “You don’t understand it any other way!”

    Clearly, in the case of such an attack, there would be “no survivors”. According to the British Daily Mail, the Russian broadcaster is apparently reacting to statements by British Defense Minister Ben Wallace, who has been advocating attacks on Russian infrastructure facilities.

    UK appears to lead the warmongers

    Great Britain was given a special mention by Rossiya 1, in blaming it for a particularly aggressive war policy. In another programme, the scenario of an attack with the Russian underwater drone Poseidon on the British Isles was presented – the drone can carry nuclear warheads of up to 100 megatons when loaded. There is no defense against it in this case either.

    The moderator explained: “The explosion of this thermonuclear torpedo off the British coast would trigger a gigantic wave of up to 500 meters in height. Such a squall of water is also a carrier of extreme doses of radiation. If it sweeps across the British Isles, it will turn what’s left of them into a radioactive desert.”

    British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has not backed down. Just last week, Truss formulated the new British war aim of completely pushing back Russian troops from Ukraine, including Crimea, which voted to join Russia in a referendum organized by Moscow in 2014.

    NATO’s strategy of conducting a proxy war against Russia, is however fraught with very serious consequences for alliance members.

    Western nations have abandoned strategic dialogue

    The United States, France and Great Britain are increasingly departing from the principles set to avoid conflict between nuclear countries “alongside the whole of NATO, which is positioning itself as a nuclear alliance,” a senior Russian diplomat underlined.

    Director of the Foreign Ministry’s Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control Vladimir Yermakov told TASS that Western leaders should come to their senses. “It is imperative to reaffirm the principle that the risks of a nuclear war that must never be unleashed must be minimized, in particular, by way of preventing any armed conflict between nuclear powers. Russia strictly abides by this principle,” Yermakov said.

    “Speaking about dangers emerging in current conditions, I would like to note that it would be useful for US-led Western countries gripped by unprecedented Russophobia to remain clearly aware that the irresponsible escalation of their anti-Russian actions is totally unacceptable,” he added.

    The US has abandoned strategic dialogue with Russia on updating the Strategic Offensive Arms Reduction and Limitation Treaty (New START), he said. “We proceeded from the fact that it would help create pre-requisites for a constructive dialogue and eventually, possibly, for drafting specific accords,” the senior Russian diplomat explained.

    “However, the Americans interrupted this interaction under the pretext of developments around Ukraine. We took note of this,” he said.

    NATO expansion has crossed a red line

    As a reminder, the US has deployed land-based intermediate-and shorter-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region to further escalate the situation and whip up an arms race.

    Yermakov told TASS that in itself, the creation of hypersonic armaments does not contradict any international treaties.

    Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Western countries against becoming involved in the Ukrainian conflict, promising a “lightning-speed” response. Putin is known for not making empty threats.

    In the current issue of the Swiss weekly Weltwoche (No. 17/22), former SPD leader Oskar Lafontaine sharply criticized German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s Ukraine policy: “If it is not possible to reach a negotiated peace soon, the danger of a nuclear war will increase, because those responsible in Moscow have their backs to the wall and the gamblers in Washington have believed for years that a nuclear war could be limited to Europe.”

    Swedish military wants to remilitarize the Åland Islands

    The demilitarized autonomy has previously been known as 'the islands of peace.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
