Disinfo: This Week's Trend: The BBC show about a hypothetical Russian invasion of the Baltic states

Summary

This Week’s Trend: The BBC show about a hypothetical Russian invasion into the Baltics and its nuclear attack on the British navy violates the military-political ethics in relations between Russia and the West.

Disproof

The BBC programme presented a hypothetical scenario that does not violate any ethics. // It was Dmitry Kiselyov himself on the very same show who announced that Russia can turn USA into a pile of radioactive ash.
