World War 3 has started with Ukraine invasion: Russian TV presenter


A Russian state TV host said that the reason President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Kyiv is taking so long is because the country has entered World War 3 against NATO.

 It has been over 50 days since Russia began its special military operation in Ukraine.

Olga Skabeyeva, presenter of Rossiya 1 implored viewers to “recognise” that Russia was now “fighting against NATO infrastructure, if not NATO itself”. Skabeyeva’s remarks follow a symbolic defeat for Moscow with the sinking of the flagship of its Black Sea fleet, Moskva.

“Many are saying ‘could it not be done more quickly?’ Everyone wants it to happen more quickly. Everyone would like a conclusive victory. Everyone would like all the objectives set to be implemented. Otherwise, on the whole, it’s impossible to accept the special operation which we started – Russia’s special operation in Ukraine,” Skabeyeva said.

She added, “One can safely call what it has escalated into World War Three. That’s absolutely for sure. Right now, we’re definitely fighting against NATO infrastructure, if not NATO itself. We need to recognise that.”

The Russian defence ministry informed that the 610 ft flagship Moskva sank on Thursday while being towed back to port. Officials said ammunition on board the ship had exploded in an unexplained fire.

However, Ukraine claimed it struck the ship with its Neptune missiles.
