Putin should help IRA attack Buckingham Palace, says TV expert

Vladimir Putin should help Irish terrorist organizations attack Buckingham Palace, a Russian TV expert has reportedly said.

Vladimir Rogov, a talking head on Russian TV, has suggested that Vladimir Putin should start arming Irish terrorists in the hopes they will attack Buckingham Palace.

The outlandish suggestion is broadly par for the course in terms of Russian-language war rhetoric produced domestically in the country, with pundits and politicians regularly recommending that Putin solve all the country’s problems with precision nuclear strikes.

According to a report from Belfast TelegraphRogov reportedly said the Russian government should, in response to the UK’s sending of missiles into Ukraine, “accidentally” start arming the “Irish Republican Army”.

“Can we not somehow (ensure) that the remaining fighting wing of the Irish Republican Army, which is fighting the British occupation, has normal weapons (to) strike at Buckingham Palace on the 10th Downing Street and elsewhere?” he asked his fellow commentators on the TV show “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov.”

He went on to suggest that such a move would be ethical as it would help provide “self-determination for the Irish”, as well as – in a way – a “free” Scotland.

However, although apparently not raised by his fellow experts, there are quite a few problems with Rogov’s suggestion.

Undoubtedly, the biggest problem is that, although a number of terrorist groups calling themselves the “Irish Republican Army” still exist, the two main groups that historically used that name have now disappeared.

In fact, politicians who have inherited the heritage of the two paramilitary organizations even attended the coronation of King Charles III earlier this month, suggesting they are unlikely to be in the mood to bomb the UK anytime soon. .

Rogov isn’t the only one giving Putin outlandish policy suggestions that aren’t grounded in reality, with a wide variety of pundits around the country repeatedly saying the Russian leader should just bomb anyone who isn’t. disagree with him.

That tradition continued on the very program Rogov was hosted on, with the show’s host suggesting the country should respond to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s recent actions by hitting him with a hypersonic missile.

It’s unclear what the logistics of hitting the 5ft 6in world leader would entail, and whether Russia’s notoriously inaccurate targeting infrastructure would be up to the task.
