Russian television teaches Russians to accept the use of nuclear weapons

 Vladimir Putin is trying to prepare Russians for the use of nuclear weapons by means of propaganda on state television, independent observers have warned.

- For the last two weeks we have been hearing on our television that nuclear silos should be opened - said Dmitry Muratov, editor-in-chief of the independent daily Novaya Gazeta. "We also hear that this terrible weapon should be used if the supplies of weapons to Ukraine continue," - he added.

Muratov considers Putin's "absolute and unlimited" power to be the most terrifying phenomenon in Russia: "If Putin decides to use nuclear weapons, no one will be able to stop him (...) neither parliament, nor civil society, nor public opinion," he said.
