Russian state television has darkly warned "traitors" against settling in England because they risk being killed, The Times of London reported.

According to the Times, broadcaster Kirill Kleymenov predicted dire consequences for any spies caught in the U.K. during a segment about the poisoning of a former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

"I sympathize with any suffering and certainly do not rejoice in it; what's more, I don't wish death on anyone," he said.

"But purely for educational purposes, for those who dream about such a career, I'd like to issue a caution: The profession of traitor is a lot more dangerous than that of a drug courier. It's very rare that those who choose it live out their days in peace and serenity. Alcoholism and drug addiction, stress, grave nervous disorders, and depression are the inevitable professional illnesses of the traitor. And as a consequence, heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, and suicide, after all."

He added it was especially unwise to seek refuge in London.

"Whatever the reasons, whether you're a professional traitor to the motherland or you just hate your country in your free time, I repeat, no matter, don't go to England," he said.

"Something is not right there — maybe the climate — but in recent years there have been too many strange incidents with a harsh outcome. People get hanged, poisoned, they die in helicopter crashes and fall out of windows in industrial quantities."

The Times reported Kleymenov was likely referring to the deaths of Russian oligarchs who had sought sanctuary in England and their British friends — including Boris Berezovsky, who was found hanged at his home in March 2013, and Alexander Litvinenko, a former officer of the FSB secret service, who was killed with polonium-210 in November 2006.
