Look what Russian state run TV is saying as American Democrat run media remains silent …
Anchor Dmitry Kiselyov of Russian state run TV said on Sunday, Russia was the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”. So much for that Obama/Russian reset, eh? The anchor went on to say, “Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama.” Newsbusters points out that mum is the world when it comes to the US media reporting on the story. However, it would appear that the media to the North did.
A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”, in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.
“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.
Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.
His program was broadcast as the first exit polls were being published showing an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voting to leave Ukraine and join Russia.
He stood in his studio in front of a gigantic image of a mushroom cloud produced after a nuclear attack, with the words “into radioactive ash”.
“Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama,” he added, pointing to opinion polls which then popped up on the screen.
