The head of propaganda outlet Russia Today has proclaimed that there are only two possible outcomes in Ukraine: victory for Russia or the annihilation of the human race.

On Monday, Margarita Simonyan, who has previously expressed her willingness to die in a nuclear war initiated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, declared on Russia 1 that "things will end badly" for modern civilization if Russia loses its illegal war of aggression against Ukraine. Her bluster is an extension of rhetoric spewed by Putin's puppets on state television who dare not dissent from their leader's delusional imperial ambitions, even though Russia is undeniably losing.

The translation has been provided by The Daily Beast's Juila Davis, the founder of the Russian Media Monitor.

"They all believe that we will lose and that the West will win," Simonyan said of the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organization and European Union allies, who are historically united in supporting Ukraine. "They don't understand that it's impossible. Either we win or this will end badly for all of humanity."

Simonyan then said that Russian students are better off not being educated in Western institutions and predicted that the tensions between Russia and the West will continue indefinitely.

"When people ask how long this will go on, in terms of our alienation and confrontation with the West, I see only one version of events. People, this is forever. Get used to this new life. I can't stand the whining of 'feeling bad for the children.' Why are you feeling sorry for the children? Some feel bad their children can't study in the West. The brave new world will no longer be open to them. I tell them, 'people, you should be rejoicing,'" she said. "The brave new world is racing straight to Hell. In ten years you'll say, 'thank you very much.' Thank you that my child never studied in the West, because your child will remain a normal person. No matter what happens and how we behave, our confrontation with them is for the rest of our lives."
