A close Putin political ally and reservist general has sensationally called for London to be hit first in a World War Three because the "threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons.”
MP Andrey Gurulyov, 54, a member of Russian parliament’s defence committee, advocated the Russian invasion of the NATO Baltic countries to prevent the West blockading Russian exclave Kaliningrad.
On state TV’s Channel 1 he said there was no other way to prevent the blockade of the enclave which is sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic Coast, around 780 miles from Moscow.

Such a move would trigger NATO’s clause five and likely World War Three. Clause five provides that if a NATO Ally is the victim of an armed attack, each and every other member of the Alliance will consider this act of violence as an armed attack against all members.
“We’ll destroy the entire group of enemy’s space satellites during the first air operation,” said Lt-Gen Gurulyov, a senior commander who now represents United Russia, the main pro-Vladimir Putin political party.
“No-one will care if they are American or British, we would see them all as NATO. Second, we’ll mitigate the entire system of anti-missile defence, everywhere and 100 per cent.
“Third, we certainly won’t start from Warsaw, Paris or Berlin. The first to be hit will be London. It’s crystal clear that the threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons.”
Like other Moscow hardliners, he believes the West – especially on continental Europe – has no stomach for a real war.
“As part of the operation to destroy critically important sites, Western Europe will be cut off from power supplies and immobilised.
“All power supply sites will be destroyed. And in the third stage, I shall see what the USA will tell Western Europe on continuing their fight in the cold, without food and electricity.

“I wonder how they (the US) will manage to stay aside. This is the rough plan, and I deliberately leave out certain moments because they are not to be discussed on TV.”
The general dismissed plans advocated by other Russian experts to snatch a corridor through Lithuania, to supply the Baltic Sea exclave of Kaliningrad.
The so-called 'Suvalkovsky Corridor’ is from Belarus to Lithuania. He sees such a strategy as a Western trap because Putin’s army would be flanked on two sides by NATO troops.
His strategy is to revert Lithuanian capital back to its former identity as Vilno, and Estonian capital Tallinn back to its tsarist identity as Reval.
“From the military point of view it is impossible to get a clear corridor [through Lithuania],” he said. "But if the West decides to block the Kaliningrad region, a decision to carry out a strategic operation to unblock it will be taken."
Gurulyov is a former deputy commander of Russia’s southern military district. He served with Russian forces in Syria.
He has been sanctioned by the US for his close links to Putin.
