Andrey Gurulev's said that an attack on the British Isles, a term that refers to Great Britain, Ireland and numerous smaller islands, could help Russia "change the outcome of this conflict" in Ukraine. Gurulev said Britain was readying for war with Russia, Gurulev said that t Russia was actually fighting Britain and the U.S. in Ukraine.
"Let's make it super simple. Two ships, 50 launches of Zircon [missiles]—and there is not a single power station left in the U.K.," he said. "Fifty more Zircons—and the entire port infrastructure is gone. One more—and we forget about the British Isles. A Third World country, destroyed and fallen apart because Scotland and Wales would leave. This would be the end of the British Crown. And they are scared of it."
Gurulev's attack on the British Isles to alter the outcome of the ongoing war came as Ukraine began a counteroffensive in the Russian-occupied Kherson region on Monday. While Russian officials have continued to stress that their Ukraine operation is going to plan and will succeed, some U.S. military officials have said that this is not the case.
