The presenter Olga Skabeyeva, of the Russian state channel Rossiya 1, assured live that “the third world war has already begun”. This happens after the Moskva ship, flagship of the Russian fleet, sank in the Black Sea after suffering several damages due to an attack by Ukraine.
This fact had an official reaction from Russia, proof of the symbolic defeat that it meant for that country lose this ship that had a capacity for 16 long-range cruise missilesreducing its combat capacity in the Black Sea.
The woman he only acknowledged on screen that the ship “suffered a fire” and spoke of an “escalation” on the part of Ukraine which could “safely be called the third world war”.

Skabeyeva, one of the voices most faithful to the Kremlin, also stated from this media outlet that “Russia is definitely fighting against NATO itself.”.
Despite the fact that this is a state media, the line of information is confusing, because on the one hand Ukraine’s responsibility for the sinking of the ship is recognized, but at the same time the idea of a missile attack is rejected.
In the program, the journalist was accompanied by experts, who did not hesitate to describe the event as “an absolute cause of war, 100 percent.” Another of them assured that “there is nothing to think about, there has to be an answer”, even referring to the need for a nuclear attack.
