(Moscow, Russia) A Russian television new anchor named by President Vladimir Putin to lead the official Russian news agency made a comment on television that’s getting more and more attention.

During a newscast, Dmitry K. Kiselyov reminded viewers Russia is still, “the only country in the world capable of turning the U.S.A into radioactive dust.”
