Russian Propaganda reckons Britain risks turning to cannibalism due to the cost of living crisis.

In April 2022, inflation reached its highest recorded level since 1982 and the House of Commons has put the crisis down to the increased price of food, energy and fuel, including the potential effect of the conflict in Ukraine.

However, a Vladimir Putin backed TV station, TsargradTV, has put a larger proportion of the blame on the war itself and the support of sanctions.

The outlet, most incredibly, quotes a Sunday Times column by Jeremy Clarkson where he jokes it is only a matter of time before 'people eat their neighbours'.

The programme itself was titled Cold, Hunger, Cannibalism: London fell into its own Ukrainian pit, and the Russian propaganda Channel begins to argue its case by saying: "Journalists begin to say terrible things aloud, reminding them of the risk of cannibalism."

The outlet even opted to use a photo of two cavemen standing next to a Union Jack bunting, while claiming that its publishing includes 'no malice, just facts'.

They say: "Things are not going well in the UK. While politicians are playing into the Ukrainian crisis, their own population is preparing for starvation."

It goes on to say: "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."

The outlet aims to promote the idea that the sanctions imposed on Russia by the UK and the West 'destroyed supply chains' to its own people.

Clarkson's words from his Sunday Times column on May 15 also appear to be taken completely out of context.

The car enthusiast wrote: "Politicians say they are 'monitoring the situation', which means they aren’t doing anything at all, but one day they will have to because while people can live without heat or clothing or even sex, they cannot live without food."

Clarkson later added: "Which is exactly what Putin wants. Sure, the war in Ukraine may result in him gaining only a tiny bit of land in the east of the country, but beyond that it could well destabilise Europe for years."

TsargradTV started broadcasting in 2015 and is known for being conservative, espousing Russian Orthodox Christianity, and supporting President Putin.

Owner Konstantin Malofeev hired former Fox News producer John 'Jack' Hanick to help him launch the channel.
