One of the participants of a panel show aired by a major Russian propaganda TV channel Rossiya 1, historian Yevgeny Spitsyn, noting Russia's nuclear potential, offered what a "quick" option to end the war with Ukraine, speaking on air of one of Russia's major national TV channels.

The historian seemed sincerely bewildered at the fact that Russia had been waging war against Ukraine for four years already.

He then went on to suggest the Kremlin dropping "one little nuke on Kyiv" to "destroy the current fascist regime."

"And that's all, the problem is solved," he concluded.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian populist "showman" politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who also holds a post of Deputy Chairman of the State Duma, suggested using a nuclear charge to hit the residence of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

At the same time, Russian authorities have launched a persecution campaign against what they call "extremism" on social networks," effectively opening criminal cases against internet users for posts, reposts, and likes.
