Margarita Simonyan Today he is one of the most important figures in Russian television. Simonyan is Vladimir Putin’s favorite broadcaster and was editor-in-chief of Russia’s English-language TV channel RT for years. He is famous for his shocking and very critical statements regarding both Ukraine and Western countries. This time, her statement surprised even Russian politicians.
“Nothing terrible will happen”
— Nothing terrible will happen. Not the nuclear winter that everyone fears, nor the terrible radiation that will kill everyone — Simonyan confirmed on October 2 in a segment of the “Ch.TD” program broadcast by RT, quoted by censer.net. “It also explained the fact of causing a thermonuclear explosion.”Somewhere over Siberia“That makes sense,” one of the wise men told her.
At the same time, according to Simonians, a nuclear reaction would disable all radio electronic devices and satellites.
— We’ll go back to 1993 and use wired phones. We had a great time after that. I prevent my children from using tablets. At least I won’t have to explain to them why everyone has tools and everyone doesn’t — Simonyan said, quoted by meduza.io.
Politicians distance themselves from Simonyan’s words
We didn’t have to wait long to get a reaction to the promoter’s words. According to meduza.io, Putin’s press spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, when asked to comment on Simonyan’s proposal, confirmed that Russia has not abandoned its obligations to ban nuclear tests. — Let us not forget that Margarita does not work in any official body in the state, so her words do not always reflect the official position — Peskov confirmed.
The mayor of Novosibirsk, Anatoly Lokot, with a population of one million, also spoke on this topic. — As a trained physicist, I will comment on this issue: nothing good can be expected from thermonuclear explosions above the Earth’s surface. The consequences will not be visible for hundreds or even thousands of years — The mayor said.
Nikolai Korolev, assistant to Moscow City Duma deputy Yevgeny Stupin, also reacted to Simonyan’s words. I asked the Investigative Committee and the Ministry of the Interior to analyze the statement about the “nuclear attack on the territory of the Russian Federation”. The angry preacher said on her Telegram channel that she could never suggest such “heresy.” — Such a terrible accusation tarnishes my reputation and causes me great harm — Simonyan wrote, cited by meduza.io.
