War in Ukraine: When Russian television debates how to kill British prisoners


The level of debate on Russian public television has just reached a new point. Guests debate on a set how to execute British prisoners captured by pro-Russians. A lunar sequence.

In Russia, state television has just taken a new step in threats and anti-Western propaganda. On the Russia-1 channel, guests debate among themselves the fate of two British prisoners who fought with the Ukrainian armed forces.

An inhuman debate

These two British nationals were captured in the Republic of Donetsk, a territory in the hands of the pro-Russian authorities. According to information from BFMTV, they were engaged alongside Ukrainian soldiers in the conflict.

“What can the British Empire respond to if two of its subjects are shot or hanged? Or just behead them? What can they do?” asks the presenter of the special. And to add: “They can impose a 7th wave of sanctions on us. Pirates are never executed by firearm, only by hanging.” A first idea of ​​the level of debate on this public channel.

Meanwhile in modern Russia: a screaming match on state TV as to whether captured British citizens Shaun Pinner and Aiden Aslin should be shot, hanged, quartered or exchanged for ransom (the release of Russia’s frozen assets), as they hope to cause a rift in Britishsociety. pic.twitter.com/QCpOFbSpsO

“Pirates are never shot, only hanged”

“Pirates are never shot, only hanged,” exclaims a guest. And the presenter of the show to react: “We are not dealing with pirates and we are not in the Middle Ages, we do not quarter or hang.” A guest then debates and affirms: “If Saddam Hussein could be hanged, then they can be hanged too (…) They must be hanged. The soldiers are shot, the criminals are hanged.” Words translated by our colleagues from BFMTV who are chilling. A real demonstration of Russian propaganda on a public scale.

In a video shared by a Russian news agency, the two British prisoners appear tired, alongside three other foreign detainees. They are awaiting their judgment by the People’s Court and risk the death penalty.
