According to the Moscow Times, Kiselyov - well-known as the voicepiece of the Russian government - also showed a simulation of a Russian nuclear strike during his program.
Kiselyov - a loyalist to Russian President Vladimir Putin - said "Russia is the only country that could really turn the U.S. into radioactive ashes."
Meanwhile, Russian and Crimean parliaments signed treaty of accession today. In a speech to a joint session of parliament, President Vladimir Putin said Moscow will always protect the rights of Russians using “political, diplomatic and legal means.”

“You can’t call something black one day, and the same thing white the next,” he said.
He complained that leaders in the West, led by Americans, “believe they’ve been entrusted by God to decide the fate of other people.”
His address, devoted to proving that Russia cannot be pushed around, was met with a standing ovation — which is much less common in Russia than in the U.S. Congress.
