RUSSIA has threatened to smash Britain with its terrifying 16,000mph “Satan 2” nuke for supplying military hardware to Ukraine.

The terrifying RS-28 Sarmat missile is capable of holding 15 warheads and travelling a distance of more than 11,000 miles – with the potential to obliterate an area the size of the UK in a single strike.

And in a chilling warning, pro-Putin TV anchor Vladimir Solovyov threatened to blow Britain to smithereens using the terrifying projectile.

“As it turned out, one Sarmat means minus one Great Britain,” he said.

It comes after UK armed forces minister James Heappey said Ukrainian airstrikes on Russian soil were “completely legitimate”.

Confirming UK Government support for targeting logisitcal structures in Russia, Heappey told Times Radio: “It’s completely legitimate for Ukraine to be targeting in Russia’s depth in order to disrupt logistics that if they weren’t disrupted would directly contribute to death and carnage on Ukrainian soil,” Heappey said.

He added: “Things that the international community are now providing to Ukraine have the range to be used over the borders. When those bits of kit are used, you tend not to blame the country that manufactured it, you blame the country that fired it.”

But Russia’s defence minstry responded to the comments, saying: “We would like to underline that London’s direct provocation of the Kyiv regime into such actions, if such actions are carried out, will immediately lead to our proportional response,”

“As we have warned, the Russian Armed Forces are in round-the-clock readiness to launch retaliatory strikes with high-precision long-range weapons at decision-making centres in Kyiv.”

  • German Minister says no sign Russia will stop delivering gas

    Christian Lindner, the German Finance Minister says there are no signs that suggest Russia will stop delivering gas to Germany, Reuters reports.

    Lindner’s comments come after Russian state gas company Gazprom halted supplies to Poland and Bulgaria.

    Germany relies on Russia for about 40% of its gas supplies.

  • Russian Ministry sanction hundreds of MP’s

    The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it is sanctioning 287 MPs in the UK Parliament.

    The Russian Ministry have accused them of “groundless whipping up of Russophobic hysteria”.

    The total is made up of 213 Conservative politicians and 74 from Labour, which will be banned from entering Russia.

    The ministry says there could be further “retaliatory counter-measures” after the UK sanctioned 386 Russian parliamentarians in March.

  • Putin loses 36th colonel as top brass is buried in Omsk

    Russia today held the funeral of its 36th colonel known to have been killed in Ukraine in little over two months of war. 

    Lt-Col Oleg Yevseev, 43, was buried in the Siberian city of Omsk on what would have been his 44th birthday. 

    Russia has given no details of  how and when he was killed except that it was as part of Vladimir Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine. 

    He is one of 30 servicemen from Omsk region to die in the war.

  • UK trade deals ‘unaffected’ by China and India’s stance on Ukraine

    The UK will not consider India and China’s failure to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in pursuing post-Brexit trade deals with those countries, the International Trade Secretary has said.

    Quizzed about whether India’s neutrality over the conflict has become a negotiating issue in trade talks, Anne-Marie Trevelyan told MPs: “Trade deals aren’t the tool for, sort of, if you like, the broader diplomatic agreement discussion.

    “Those continuing discussions around areas of policy difference, whatever they might be, will continue, but all we will continue to do is to encourage everybody to think about how their relationship either with Russia or indeed with Ukraine can be enhanced or reduced in order to bring this war to an end as quickly as we can”.

    She said negotiations with India are in “relatively early stages”, and that representatives from the Department for International Trade are in the country this week.

    “They have a very clear mandate to continue discussing the broad range of trade issues that we want to see in a trade deal with India,” Ms Trevelyan told the International Trade Committee.

    Boris Johnson told negotiators to get a free trade agreement done by Diwali, in October, as he celebrated a “massive push” during a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi last week.

  • Russia claims it has destroyed ‘large batch of Western-supplied weapons’ in Ukraine

    Russia claims it has destroyed a large quantity of Western-supplied weapons in Ukraine.

    With the conflict that has claimed thousands of lives entering its third month, Ukraine conceded Russian forces had pushed deeper into the country’s east and captured several villages, as Moscow intensifies a renewed offensive to take control of Donbas.

    Russia’s defence ministry said its forces had destroyed the “large batch” of weapons and ammunition supplied by the United States and European countries using long-range missile strikes on southeastern Ukraine.

    They targeted hangers at an aluminium plant near the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia with “high-precision long-range sea-based Kalibr missiles”, the ministry said, without specifying the weapons destroyed.

  • Kremlin dismisses accusations Russia is using gas as blackmail tool

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed on Wednesday accusations that Moscow has used natural gas supplies as a tool of blackmail after Russian energy giant Gazprom halted gas exports to Poland and Bulgaria.

    European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Gazprom’s announcement was yet another attempt by Russia to use gas as an instrument of blackmail.

    Peskov said Russia was a reliable energy supplier and was not engaging in blackmail.

    He declined to say how many countries had agreed to switch to paying for gas in roubles in line with a decree issued last month by President Vladimir Putin.

  • Zelenskyy calls for meeting with Putin

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy yesterday called for a meeting with Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, in an effort ‘to end the war’.

    “I think that whoever started this war will be able to end it,” he told a news conference at a metro station in the heart of the Ukrainian capital.

    He was “not afraid to meet” Putin if it would lead to a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine, he added.

    “From the beginning, I have insisted on talks with the Russian president,” said Zelensky.

    “It’s not that I want (to meet him), it’s that I have to meet him so as to settle this conflict by diplomatic means. We have confidence in our partners, but we have no confidence in Russia,” he added.

  • Dominic Raab was non-committal when asked if Liz Truss was right to say that the West should supply warplanes to Ukraine.

    The Justice Secretary told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I certainly don’t think we should be… avoiding providing support to Ukraine at this critical moment in the war. And the Foreign Secretary is right about that.”

    Pressed on whether she was right about providing the planes specifically, he said: “We need to listen very carefully to what the Ukrainians need and help with our allies to provide them with the military support, so that they win and so that (Vladimir) Putin loses, and that’s part of it, so is the sanctions.”

  • ‘My bathroom is the last bit of my flat Putin hasn’t blitzed’

    A GRAN trapped near Ukraine’s front line has been forced to sleep on a chair in her bathroom as it is the only room in her bomb-blitzed flat protected from shelling.

    Vera Hurovaya and hubby Vladimir Krupenya live in the last block of flats left on the edge of Kharkiv.

    Neighbours have fled the Saltivka district, a wasteland due to non-stop Russian bombardments.

    But Vera, 73, and Vlad, 83, have nowhere to go. The exhausted pair told The Sun they had slept on wooden stools in the cramped, candlelit bathroom since Vladimir Putin’s troops invaded on February 24.

    Their besieged home overlooking no-man’s land is just 2½ miles from Russia’s positions.

    They cannot even lie in their bath as they keep it full of water for drinking, cooking and washing as the taps rarely work.

    And they are too frail to make the life-or-death dash to an underground shelter as rockets, missiles and tank bombardments crash in day and night.

    Their heartwrenching tale came as Russian forces blasted five railway stations in central and western Ukraine hours after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken travelled by rail to capital Kyiv.

  • Ukrainian aide describes Russian strikes as ‘karma’ and ‘payback’

     A Ukrainian presidential aide described explosions heard in three Russian provinces bordering Ukraine on Wednesday as “karma” and payback for the war in Ukraine.

    Presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak, in comments on the Telegram messaging app, did not acknowledge Ukraine was responsible for the incidents.

    “The reasons for the destruction of the military infrastructure in (Russian) border areas can be quite varied,” he wrote, adding that “sooner or later the debts will have to be repaid” when one country decides to attack another country.

  • Russian foreign minister warns nuclear action is ‘serious and real’

    Russia’s foreign minister warned a nuclear world war is now a “real” danger as British and Nato weapons are already “legitimate” targets in Ukraine.

    In a chilling message, Sergei Lavrov said the risk of World War 3 is now “considerable” – saying the West is essentially fighting a proxy war against Moscow via its support for Kyiv.

    Lavrov accused Nato forces of “pouring oil on the fire” by “pumping weapons into Ukraine“.

    In an interview with Russian news agencies, he said: “This is our key position on which we base everything.

    “The risks now are considerable.

    “I would not want to elevate those risks artificially. Many would like that. The danger is serious, real, And we must not underestimate it.”

  • Russian threat against Britain is ‘unlawful, warns Dominic Raab

    Moscow’s threat of a “proportional response” against Britain for backing Ukrainian strikes behind Russian lines is “unlawful”, Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has warned.

    He said Vladimir Putin’s regime is only adding to its “pariah status” by threatening other countries, including by shutting off gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria.

    The Kremlin was angered by armed forces minister James Heappey saying it was “completely legitimate” for Ukraine to strike strategic targets on Russian soil.

    Russia’s defence ministry accused the UK of “direct provoking” Ukraine into attacks, warning of a “proportional response” if the country succeeds in landing them, hinting at possible strikes at British sites in Kyiv.

    Mr Raab, who is also Justice Secretary, told Sky News: “The Russian statement is unlawful and what we’re doing is lawful, we’re entitled, all states are entitled to provide military support to any state exercising the right of lawful defence against an aggressive invasion.

    “Frankly if Russia starts threatening other countries it only adds further to their pariah status and will only further the solidarity and consensus in the international community that they must be stopped.

  • ‘Russia must be pushed out of Donbas’

    Russia must be pushed out of the Donbas region, the chairman of the Defence Committee has said.

    Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood told Sky News: “The unanswered question I hope the Foreign Secretary will address is what are we collectively trying to achieve? What is mission success?

    “Given the threat is not just to Ukraine but well beyond that this is game-changing, what we’re experiencing here in European security.

    “Putin must strategically fail in Ukraine, and if we allow him to survive, he will regroup and attempt to advance his sphere of influence way beyond Ukraine in the future.

    “So we need to be very, very clear what our mission is – it must be to push Russia completely out of the Donbas region.”

  • Gazprom halts supplies to Bulgaria and Poland for failing to pay in roubles

    Russian energy giant Gazprom on Wednesday halted gas supplies to Bulgaria and Poland for failing to pay for gas in roubles, the Kremlin’s toughest response yet to the crippling sanctions imposed by the West over the conflict in Ukraine.

    Poland and Bulgaria are the first countries to have their gas cut off by Europe’s main supplier since Moscow started what it calls a special military operation in Ukraine on Feb. 24.

    “Gazprom has completely suspended gas supplies to Bulgargaz (Bulgaria) and PGNiG (Poland) due to absence of payments in roubles,” Gazprom said in a statemnt.

    Gazprom also warned that transit via Poland and Bulgaria would be cut if gas was taken illegally.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered European countries to pay Gazprom, the world’s biggest natural gas company, in roubles after what the West froze Russian assets and largely cut Moscow out of the West’s economic system.

  • Boris Johnson plays down fears of Russian nuclear strike on Ukraine

    Boris Johnson has dismissed fears President Vladimir Putin could launch a tactical nuclear strike if his forces continue to be bogged down in Ukraine.

    The Prime Minister said the overwhelming support in Russia for the invasion meant Mr Putin had the “political margin for manoeuvre” to back down and withdraw his forces if they fail to breakthrough.

    Some analysts have warned a frustrated Russian leader could use his arsenal of low-yield, battlefield nuclear weapons if they suffered further reverses at the hands of the Ukrainians.

    Earlier, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warned that the threat of nuclear conflict “should not be under-estimated”.

    He accused Nato allies of “pouring oil on the fire” by providing increasingly powerful weaponry to the Ukrainians as he warned against provoking “World War Three”.

  • Russian ammunition depot explodes in suspected Ukrainian drone strike 

    A RUSSIAN ammunition depot has exploded in what is suspected to be another strike by Ukraine across the border as they push back against Vladimir Putin.

    The ammo dump in the Belgorod region was reportedly ablaze and pictures show a huge plume of fire and smoke billowing over the landscape.

    Two more attacks were also suspected with reports of explosions in the regions of the Voronezh and Kursk.

    Ukraine has not confirmed the strikes – but video appears to show anti-air missile being fired in the area.

    All three regions are along the border with Ukraine and the blasts come as Kyiv goes on the offensive.

    Kyiv has been pushing the Russians back on a number of fronts as Putin failed in his plan to bulldoze his way to victory in a matter of days.

  • Russia’s warning WW3 may break out

    RUSSIA’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, yesterday warned there is a “real” danger of a third world war breaking out after a day of apparent Ukrainian attacks on Russian soil.

    Speaking on the 61st day of the war, during a state television broadcast, Lavrov was asked about the importance of avoiding World War III.

    “I would not want to elevate those risks artificially. Many would like that. The danger is serious, real. And we must not underestimate it,” Lavrov replied, Reuters has reported.

    Lavrov also said the continual deliveries of supplies and weaponry to Ukraine means the NATO alliance has positioned itself as “in essence engaged in war with Russia“.

    In the interview, he warned: “These weapons will be a legitimate target for Russia’s military acting within the context of the special operation.”

    Lavrov went on: “NATO, in essence, is engaged in a war with Russia through a proxy and is arming that proxy.

    “War means war.”

    Responding to Lavrov’s comments, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted they were a bluff to “scare the world off supporting Ukraine.”

  • Russia claims it has ‘liberated’ Kherson – reports

    Russia’s defence ministry yesterday claimed its forces had liberated the entire Kherson region in the south of Ukraine.

    Interfax news agency scited a senior official as saying that elsewhere in the south of Ukraine, Russian troops had taken parts of the Zaporizhzhia and Mykolaiv regions, as well as part of the Kharkiv region to the east of Kyiv

  • Putin agrees ‘in principle’ to UN involvement in evacuating civilians at Azovstal plant

    Vladimir Putin agreed “in principle” to U.N. and International Committee for the Red Cross involvement in the evacuation of civilians from the Azovstal plant in Ukraine’s Mariupol, the United Nations said in a statement on Tuesday.

    “Follow-on discussions will be had with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the Russian Defence Ministry,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement after Putin met with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Moscow.

  • Russia’s Gazprom to halt gas shipments to Poland via the Yamal pipeline

    Russia’s Gazprom will halt gas shipments to Poland via the Yamal pipeline from Wednesday, Poland’s PGNiG gas firm said in a statement on Tuesday.

    “On April 26, 2022, Gazprom informed PGNiG of its intention to completely suspend deliveries under the Yamal contract… on April 27,” PGNiG said.

    The operator said that Poland was prepared to obtain necessary supplies from other sources.

    “All deliveries to customers are being made according to their demand,” the company said.

    The Polish government also said it was ready to face any interruption of supply from Russia.

    “There will be no shortage of gas in Polish homes,” Climate Minister Anna Moskwa said on Twitter.

    “Since the first day of the war we have declared that we are ready for full independence from Russian raw materials,” she said.

    “Poland has the necessary gas reserves and sources of supply to protect our security. For years we have been successfully making ourselves independent from Russia,” she added.

  • UK will not be distracted by Russian threats says Liz Truss

    Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said it is important not to be “distracted” by Russian threats and that she is determined to work with allies on a “Marshall Plan” to rebuild Ukraine.

    Ms Truss was responding to a question in the House of Commons from Labour MP Graham Stringer about the “threat by Putin to use nuclear weapons” when she described the need not to be distracted or “put off our course by these threats from the Russian regime”.

    Outlining a vision for longer-term support for Ukraine, she said that “looking to the future” when the war is over the UK would “continue to support a strong, sovereign Ukraine”.

    And she said the UK is working on a joint commission with Poland to ensure Ukraine can defend itself in the “longer term”, including with Nato-standard weapons.

    The Foreign Secretary said: “We will also help Ukraine to rebuild. I’m determined to work with the United States, with the EU and other partners, on a new Marshall Plan for the country.

    “We need to see a landmark international effort to rebuild Ukraine’s towns and cities, regenerate their industries and secure their freedom. We will also ensure that Putin and his regime are held to account for their crimes in Ukraine.”
