Russia Could Turn U.S. into 'Radioactive Ashes'

Russian TV Anchor Dmitry Kiselyov
Said Russian State TV Anchor Dmitry Kiselyov on his news program on Sunday at the time when Crimea went to the polls to vote in the referendum to re-join Russia.

According to the Moscow Times, Kiselyov - well-known as the voicepiece of the Russian government - also showed a simulation of a Russian nuclear strike during his program.

Kiselyov - a loyalist to Russian President Vladimir Putin - said "Russia is the only country that could really turn the U.S. into radioactive ashes."

Meanwhile, Russian and Crimean parliaments signed treaty of accession today. In a speech to a joint session of parliament, President Vladimir Putin said Moscow will always protect the rights of Russians using “political, diplomatic and legal means.”

Vladimir Putin reading his speech
According to a news-report in the Washington Post : "Putin insisted that Russia was acting within international law. He dwelled at some length on Kosovo, which broke free of Serbia in 1999, after NATO intervention, and ultimately declared independence, with international recognition, in 2008. He said that precedent gives Western countries no standing to complain about Crimea. Putin said that Russia has no plans to take other regions of Ukraine after Crimea and Sevastopol.

“You can’t call something black one day, and the same thing white the next,” he said.

He complained that leaders in the West, led by Americans, “believe they’ve been entrusted by God to decide the fate of other people.”

His address, devoted to proving that Russia cannot be pushed around, was met with a standing ovation — which is much less common in Russia than in the U.S. Congress.
