Britain is “the main b**tard” when it comes to Western support of Ukraine and should be “wiped off the face of the Earth,” according to a Russian MP.
Russian State Duma deputy Andrey Gurulyov appeared on a Russian TV news show to say that he saw the UK as Ukraine’s main backers, and he had a radical solution to put an end to Ukraine – by putting an end to us.
“The first thing to do is to tear Britain down, to wipe it off the face of the Earth,” he said.

“And in fact,” he added, “after that, everything will be over. It will be over, because it's Britain that's the main b**tard.”
Going on to apparently blame the US for influencing British support for Ukraine, Gurulyov aded: “…the territory behind the puddle itself as its masters.”
But step one, he went on, would be for Russia to destroy the UK: "The main instigator here in Europe is Britain.
“By inflicting a critical defeat on Britain, essentially the whole war will be over. And then they'll start listening to what our president says. Right away, off the bat.
“They'll start to listen to what the president of the People's Republic of China is saying. Sooner or later it will come to that, and that's probably how it will end."
Putin's 'desperate' visit to Mariupol was his 'last stand' in invasion struggles
It’s by no means the first time Russian propaganda broadcasts have singled out Britain as a potential target for attack.
Vladimir Solovyov, a propaganda broadcaster known to be particularly close to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, called for a nuclear strike on London in an unhinged anti-British rant on Russian TV last month.
Furious about reports of British military hardware being supplied to Kyiv, Solovyov stared directly into the camera lens and vowed “London will turn to dust. To dust!”
Switching briefly to English, as if to address Brits directly, he then yelled “Burn in hell!” and helpfully added “Flames!”

He had previously threatened that Russia’s 'Satan II' missile would be enough to obliterate the UK.
“As it turned out, one Sarmat means minus one Great Britain,” he said slamming the British Government’s “totally boorish” opposition to Putin’s empire-building.
NATO doctrine states that an attack on any single member must be treated as an attack on all – so if Russia were reckless enough to launch an attack anywhere in the British Isles it would be wiped out in a massive counter-strike within hours – something Mr Gurulyov appears to be overlooking.
