Russian Lawmaker Suggests Annihilating Turkey With Nuclear Strike on Istanbul
Russian lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky suggested to annihilate Turkey with a nuclear strike on Istanbul.
Vladimir made the remarks after Turkey shot down a Russian jet near the Syrian border.
According to Russian media, MP Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed to crush Turkey with a nuclear missile attack, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to Korrespondent.
“Istanbul is very easy to destroy: it takes just one nuclear bomb to throw in the Strait (Bosphorus – Ed.), and it will be washed away. It would be such a terrible flood, the water column would rise to 10-15 meters, and there would be no city with nine million people,” – said the leader of the Liberal Democrats.
According to Zhirinovsky, Turkey’s NATO allies will not intervene, “not wanting to die in a nuclear fire.”
Zhirinovsky said that at present Turkey is the number one enemy for Russia.
