Russian media have shown a frightening string of mushroom cloud explosions “in anticipation of a nuclear conflict,” while urging Putin to “take drastic action” to win in Ukraine.
Sombre footage aired by NTV shed light on nuclear explosions and the aftermath of “Armageddon.”
The slavish channel is owned by the media wing of Gazprom, the Kremlin-obedient energy giant now starving the West on Russian gas for the coming winter.
The sequence was titled: “Anticipating Nuclear Conflict – How Weapons of Mass Destruction Have Become Part of the Geopolitical Game”.
It comes as a senior Putin lieutenant, Ramzan Kadyrov — the leader of Chechnya and a war fanatic — urged Putin to “consider imposing martial law in the border areas and using low-yield nuclear weapons” to end his recent military humiliations to overcome in Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin’s propaganda television has shown the chilling sequence “in anticipation of a nuclear conflict.”

“I don’t know what the Department of Defense is reporting to the Commander-in-Chief [Putin]but in my personal opinion we need to take more drastic measures,” he said.
Lieutenant Kadyrov complained that Putin’s commanders had failed to rout Ukraine’s alleged “satanists and fascists”.
The television sequence blamed the West for too much talk of nuclear war, while Putin’s henchmen and propagandists – plus the Kremlin leader himself – constantly spread the threat of a nuclear apocalypse.
The message seemed to be that the West should give in to Putin’s demands on Ukraine and the threat of nuclear war would diminish.

“We are in a situation where the superiority in resources and conventional weapons is on the West’s side,” said Vasily Kashin, a military and political analyst at the Moscow School of Economics.
“Russia’s power rests on its nuclear arsenal.”
Nonetheless, today Putin augmented his conventional forces with a new wave of war hardware deployed in Siberia from thousands of miles away.
A video showed guns heading west from Krasnoyarsk, some 3,000 miles from the war zone.
Meanwhile, Russia’s “surrender” in strategic Lyman has sparked deep fear among Putin propagandists.

“The problem is a system of lies, reports of a good situation [when the reality is bad].
“This rot comes from the top down.”
