Russian Television: Propagandist Demands Attack on the USA

Kremlin propagandists, in a segment broadcast on state television, have suggested three U.S. states as potential targets for a hypothetical Russian invasion. This was reported by the German news website Münchner Merkur.

Vladimir Solovyov, a prominent figure in Kremlin-backed media and known as ‘Putin’s Voice’, along with Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of the state-controlled media organization RT, made these remarks in a program on Russia-1. A clip of this was published by Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor to the Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs, on X, formerly known as Twitter.

State television propagandists regularly toy with the idea of attacking or even occupying the territory of NATO countries. In a recent broadcast, Solovyov and Simonyan controversially suggested that Russia might potentially invade the U.S. states of Alaska, California, or Hawaii. Alaska, once part of Russia, was sold to the USA in 1867 for 7.2 million dollars after then-President Andrew Johnson signed the Alaska Treaty. On October 18, 1867, it was officially transferred from Russia to the USA and became a state on January 3, 1959.
