A Russian state TV host has issued a chilling warning to the West, claiming it will be "reduced to ashes" if Russia fails in its war with Ukraine.
Rossiya 1 TV host Vladimir Solovyov said that "what's happening in Ukraine won't stay in Ukraine" as he compared the occupation to a "holy war".
Solovyov said: "We live in latter days. What's happening in Ukraine won't stay in Ukraine. A holy war is underway. We're fighting for the right of mankind to live in its original state, as designed by the Creator.

"Those fools who are trying to fight they aren't fighting against us, they're at war with God. In case of their victory, their end is certain.
"When I say that either we win, or the whole world will be reduced to ashes, this also has another meeting. How can humanity that fights against God continue to exist?"
The TV clip, which also saw Solovyov call Western leaders "Satanists", was posted and translated by the Russian Media Mentor on Saturday (December 17).
He added that former US President Trump had been "totally traditional", and compared him to the current president Biden, who he called "nasty" and "scary".
He said: "Look at [President Volodymyr] Zelenskyy's face. Look at Biden's face, an absolutely deceitful, nasty, scary no-good person.

"He isn't like Trump. Why was Trump out of favor? Because he is totally traditional, at least in some ways. Trump's traditional character provoked hatred.
"If you think about what's happening. It's Satanism. They're purely demonic, you can't put it any other way."
The host is known for his pro-Kremlin agenda and regularly pushes propaganda in favour of the Ukraine war.
He is thought to be a friend of the warmonger and even received the Order of Honour from Putin back in 2013.
He has also been known to defend the threats of nuclear war made by Russian despot Vladimir Putin, support which he reiterated in this most recent harrowing clip by comparing the battle to the Biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which God is said to have destroyed because of their evil residents.
Solovyov added: "When people are trying to tell me about whether nuclear weapons can be used or not, I will respond to that briefly and clearly, 'do you remember this part of Biblical history?' Sodom and Gomorrah?'"
This comes following reports that Putin is planning a second attempt to capture Kyiv.
Ukrainian Major-General Andrii Kovalchuk revealed that the country is anticipating a potential full-scale attack on the city in 2023
He told Sky News: “We foresee such options, such scenarios. We are preparing for it. We live with the thought that they will attack again. This is our task.”
