A close ally of Russian leader Vladimir Putin has said Russia should make London its number one target in Europe should World War III break out. Reservist general and MP Andrey Gurulyov said it was “crystal clear that the threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons”.
Appearing on Russian state television, Gurulyov also claimed there was strategic sense in Russia invading the Baltic states if fighting started – especially those aligned with NATO. This, he said, would prevent the blockade of the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.
“We will destroy the entire group of enemy space satellites in the first air operation,” Gurulyov speculated, “Nobody will care if they are American or British, we would see them all as NATO. Second, we will mitigate the missile defense system together, everywhere and 100%”.

The general added: “Thirdly, we will certainly not start from Warsaw, Paris or Berlin. The first touchdown will be London. It is clear that the threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons.”
Seemingly confident in the plan, Gurulyov felt he was good at tactics. He boasted: “As part of the operation to destroy critical sites, Western Europe will be cut off from the power supply and brought to a standstill. All power supply sites will be destroyed.
“And in the third stage, I will see what the United States will say to Western Europe about continuing to fight in the cold, without food or electricity. I wonder how they (the United States) will manage to stay apart.
“That’s the rough plan, and I deliberately omit certain moments because they shouldn’t be discussed on TV.”
