Russia propaganda claims UK on 'brink of cannibalism' as Brits brace for ‘starvation'
A Russian journalist said the UK population are "preparing for starvation” due to the cost of living crisis the country is experiencing as a consequence of the support the UK is providing to Ukraine. Among the claims, the Russian article also described Russia and Belarus as the world’s “largest suppliers of food and fertilisers”.
The propagandistic article showed the image of two cavemen standing next to the Union Flag and read the title “Cold, Hunger, Cannibalism: London fell into its own Ukrainian pit”.
The article was posted on Tsargrad TV, a Russian television channel owned by Putin-supporter businessman Konstantin Malofeev.
Below the top picture, it stated: “Things are not going well in the UK.
“While politicians are playing into the Ukrainian crisis, their own population is preparing for starvation. “Europe is seeing an explosion in prices, and politicians are talking about the threat of mass starvation. “In some cities of Britain, a state of emergency is introduced due to food shortages”.
