Russian Official Threatens US Destruction With Nuclear Missiles

A pro-Kremlin member of Russia's Parliament warned the U.S. that President Vladimir Putin could wipe out the East and West Coasts with just four nuclear missiles.

Alexei Zhuravlev, speaking earlier this month on state TV channel Russia-1, said that Moscow had the capability to launch a nuclear attack on the U.S over its support of Ukraine.

"I tell you with full competence that to destroy the entirety of the East Coast of the United States, we only need two Sarmat missiles — two!" Zhuravlev said, referring to Russia’s new intercontinental ballistic missiles.

"And another two for the West Coast. Four missiles, that’s it — there will be nothing left."

Zhuravlev also said a small percentage of Ukraine's population were "willing to resurrect the SS" and thus responsible for Russia's unprovoked attack.

"These 2 million should've either left Ukraine, or they should be denazified," Zhuravlev said. "That is, to be exterminated."

Sarmat 2 is Russia's latest-generation ballistic missile thought to be capable of carrying up to 15 nuclear warheads, the Daily Mail reported. Russian military sources claim it is more than 130 times the power of the bomb used on Hiroshima.

Putin last month bragged that the missile can hit any country, and Russian state media has threatened a strike on the U.S., France, Germany, and the United Kingdom for their support of Ukraine.

Zhuravlev also said 40% of Ukrainians were not in favor of taking down Soviet World War II memorials, which were being removed in some parts of the country. He said another 36% had no opinion, thus meaning they secretly were against the moves but are too afraid to say it.

"Only 19% support it [removing the memorials]," Zhuravlev said. "If we knock some sense into them, then another 12-15% will too say no. In the end, we getting 5% of those who cannot be saved."

Earlier in the month, the head of Russia's foreign intelligence agency (SVR) compared the U.S. State Department to the World War II Nazi propaganda machine constructed by Joseph Goebbels, saying Washington had launched an anti-Russia messaging campaign across social media.
