One of the Kremlin's most-prominent propagandists said that Russian President Vladimir Putin should have nuked Queen Elizabeth's funeral while world leaders were all in one place.

Anchor Olga Skabeyeva, known as Putin's "Iron Doll," made the suggestion Monday night. It was just hours after the Queen’s body was laid to rest at the end of 11 days of mourning in the U.K., reported Daily Mail. The funeral was attended by all major Western leaders. It included President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

This declaration comes as the latest threat from Putin’s state-run channels as Russian troops continue to face setbacks in Ukraine.

Russia has also blamed Britain for galvanizing Western action against the Kremlin, reported Mirror. Andrey Gurulev, who is a military commander and Member of the State Duma, said that threats from the West to planned referendums on joining Russia in invaded places of Ukraine should be considered a red line. Gurulev, also a member of the Russian parliament’s defense committee, said on TV that if there is a real threat to Russian territory, they are "fully entitled to use nuclear weapons." He noted that it will not provoke a nuclear war as they will use "operative, not strategic nuclear weapons on Kalibrs, Iskanders, and bombs on planes.”

Gurulev also hit back at Western claims that Russia could potentially strike at Germany or Ukraine. He asked why should Russians bomb Ukraine or Germany? Then he said that there is Britain, which is the "root of all evil.”

Then Skabeyeva claimed that Putin, “should have done it” on the day of Queen’s funeral. She added that all the "best people were there at the funeral… God forgive me."

Taking over from her, Gurulev then claimed that when Britain is turned into a "Martian wasteland, what will NATO’s Article 5 (defending collective security) be about….?" He noted that there will be "nothing left there. An unshakable island - it will be shakable.”

His comments come as Russia's propagandists try to make sense of their nation's latest battlefield humiliation after their soldiers were routed near Kharkiv. Russian state media has been struggling to play off the debacle as anything other than a defeat.
