RT director Anton Krasovski (a colleague of the vile Margarita Simonyan) suggested that the best method of ridding Ukraine of children in the old Soviet Union who called Russia occupiers then would have been to simply drown them in the river.

Since nothing, or nearly nothing, happens on these shows by chance, some are suggesting that such talk is a prelude to Russia blowing up the Kakhovka dam in the Kherson region in the coming weeks, which if it happens would certainly kill thousands of civilians. The idea is that it prepares the Russian public for future war crimes on an even larger scale.

JULIA Davis, an American journalist who monitors Russian media and publishes clips with subtitles to bring Russian propaganda closer to Western audiences, published a clip from a show on pro-regime Russian television Russia Today, which is financed from the Russian budget.

The video shows a chilling conversation between RT director Anton Krasovski and SF writer Sergej Lukyanenko.

At one point, Lukyanenko says that he visited Ukraine in the 1980s and that Ukrainian children told him that the country was under the occupation of Moscow. RT's director responded with a chilling tirade.

"They should have been drowned in the Tsina river, where the ducklings swim. Just drown those children, drown them. That's not your method because you SF writers are intelligent people, but that's our method," says Krasovsky.

"Whoever says that it was occupied by Moscow should be thrown into the river," said the director of RT, who previously said that "Ukrainian grandmothers would give their savings for a funeral only to be raped by Russian soldiers."

UPDATE: Krasovski has now apologized after being suspended by RT. He got a little "carried away."

Ukraine said on Sunday that RT was an inciter of genocide and should be banned worldwide. Margarita Simonyan, the channel's editor-in-chief, said she had suspended Krasovsky because of his "disgusting" comments, adding that no one at RT shared his views.

Krasovsky said in a social media post he was "really embarrassed".

"Well, it happens: you're on air, you get carried away. And you can't stop. I ask for the forgiveness of everyone who was stunned by this," he said.
