Russian State TV Anchor Warns ‘Traitors’

“For days, Russia’s main national TV channels were practically silent on the attempt to kill former spy Sergei Skripal with a nerve agent, but this changed in Thursday’s main evening bulletins,” the BBC reports.

“The comment by Kirill Kleimenov — the presenter on government-controlled Channel One’s flagship Vremya news program — sounded like a veiled, mocking threat to anyone considering becoming a double agent for Britain.”

Said Kleimenov: “I don’t wish death on anyone, but for purely educational purposes, I have a warning for anyone who dreams of such a career. The profession of a traitor is one of the most dangerous in the world.”
