Russian State TV Says World War III Has Begun After Moskva Sinking; Wants Putin to Use Nuclear Weapon

Russian state TV propagandist Olga Skabeyeva has claimed that World War III has now started after Ukraine hit Moscow's warship Moskva in the Black Sea. Rossiya 1 presenter Skabeyeva claimed that the 'escalation' could 'safely be called World War Three', claiming that 'we are definitely fighting against... NATO itself'.

Skabeyeva stuck to the Kremlin's official line that the warship suffered a 'fire' despite heading a segment that blamed the vessel's demise on Ukraine, according to the Daily Mail.
