Editor-in-chief of Russian state operated RT quits. "We’re on the brink of a nuclear war now. I’m not exaggerating"
Maria Baronova resigned as editor-in-chief of Russia Today, a state-run media operation also known as RT, last week after condemning Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. She’s well aware that anyone who speaks out against the Kremlin could be in danger – but personal safety is the least of Baronova’s concerns.

"The problem is, I know these people very well. They never send threats, they just kill, so there is kind of [a] weird silence around me, but I really think we’re on the brink of a nuclear war right now. I’m not exaggerating," Baronova told Fox News Digital from Moscow, via a WhatsApp call.

"The problem is, I know these people very well. They never send threats, they just kill, so there is kind of [a] weird silence around me, but I really think we’re on the brink of a nuclear war right now. I’m not exaggerating," Baronova told Fox News Digital from Moscow, via a WhatsApp call.

The blunt Baronova agreed to talk to Fox News Digital until her son’s food was ready. She explained that the last straw before quitting RT wasn’t any sort of on-air propaganda, but rather an Instagram message from her colleague who wrote, "If you are now ashamed of being Russian, don’t worry, you are not Russian," as Putin’s invasion of Ukraine intensified.

"I was really disturbed by that tone and level of support," Baronova said, noting that she publicly responded to her now-former coworker’s message.

"If I chose to be with Russia, this does not mean that I should walk in a totalitarian system, be silent or, for example, rejoice that the regime, which I do not want for my country, is being exported somewhere else," Baronova wrote. "And this regime will finally turn our life into one endless hell. What's there. Already turned."

Baronova then stepped down from the state-run network.

"That was the moment I decided, ‘OK, that’s it,’" she said.

I guess the more discursive shows like Cross Talk, Keiser Report, Redacted, Breaking the Set and the World According to Jesse to name a few will have to cease. I can’t see how those shows can continue like any of those presenters are going to Censor what they want to say.

I wouldn’t know though as RT as dropped off the channel list. I get that they are embargoing Russian products but this seems like another oppression from the nanny states.

Why not just allow RT to keep broadcasting around the world and let people make their own decisions, nothing wrong with comparing the views and reportage of different outlets.

This is my favourite meme for anything Nuclear related. Shouldn’t trivialise these things but one has to keep sane somehow.

So everyone seems to be quitting - who's working at the Russian State TV stations now?

You can still watch RT all you want:

The UK and the US governments are not blocking access to any Russian media sites.

Unlike what the Russian censorship agency is doing by blocking around 5000 sites now.

Welp, that will probably invoke the wrath of Putin and could well get her arrested and sent to Siberia.

Are people here really that stupid to fall for this argument? Or are you really that stupid to think this was clever…

I’m going with you’re an idiot.
