The extraordinary remark by general Andrey Gurulyov – apparently a direct threat against Queen Elizabeth II – is the latest example of the overheated rhetoric emanating from Putin’s inner circle as Russia finds itself increasingly bogged down in Ukraine. Gurulyov, 54, has served in several senior roles in the Russian military, most recently deputy commander of the Southern Military District.

A deputy of the 8th State Duma, he has been a frequent critic of the UK, bragging after Putin’s invasion on February 24 that his country would opt to attack London before Warsaw, Paris or Berlin.

Speaking in an undated vide aired on Russian state television, Gurulyov boasted that an attack on the British isles could help Russia “change the outcome of this conflict” in Ukraine.

Claiming Britain was preparing for full-blown war with his country, he added: “Let’s make it super-simple.

“Two ships, 50 launches of Zircon missiles – and there is not a single power station left in the UK

”Fifty more Zircons – and the entire port infrastructure is gone. One more – and we forget about the British Isles.

“A Third World country, destroyed and fallen apart because Scotland and Wales would leave.
