Yaakov Kedmi, a Moscow-born former Israeli diplomat, says that Russia possesses the capability of bombing the UK “back to the Stone Age.”

In an appearance on Russian state TV, Kedmi — who previously served as the head of Nativ, Israel’s liasion group with Jews in the former Soviet Union — suggests that Russia could deploy the hypersonic Zircon missile against the United Kingdom.

“About 50 or 60 of Britain’s power stations will be gone in 10 minutes,” says Kedmi, who has in recent years become a public pro-Kremlin cheerleader. “And all of Britain will be back to the Stone Age.”
