• Vladimir Solovyov, known as "Putin's voice," has close ties with Russian President
  • Stonehenge is a historic landmark of England, in the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire
  • Solovyov's comments were in response to a question by a Ukrainian political analyst

Russian TV personality Vladimir Solovyov has issued a stark warning to the West suggesting Moscow should invade Russia and take Stonehenge. The remarks come as Russia intensified its offensive in Ukraine with troops attacking areas in Donbas.

Also known as "Putin's voice," Solovyov who has close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia should invade Britain next, and target U.K. Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.

During the Russia-1 program, "Evening with Vladimir Solovyov," the TV anchor claimed that he would like to see Russia take Stonehenge, the historic landmark in England that lies in Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, under its control. The location is currently being used to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 70th anniversary.

Solovyov's comments were in response to Ukrainian political analyst Vasil Vakarov's question about how far Russia would be willing to go before stopping.

“Well, when we have to, then we will... Where will we stop? Well, as I was saying today, maybe Stonehenge. Liz Truss says she's the one fighting the war," Solovyov said as quoted by The Independent.

Truss, Britain's foreign secretary, hasn't been in the good books of those supporting Russia as he refused to compromise with Putin over Ukraine's invasion, which has now entered its fourth month.

Russian state TV has been a big critic of the West and has previously threatened Britain and Europe. In April, Solovyov threatened the U.K. with a possible nuclear annihilation that would be carried out with the Sarmat, a Russian ballistic missile.

"One Sarmat means minus one Great Britain because they've gotten totally boorish," Solovyov said on his show at the time, the New York Post reported.

Meanwhile, as the fight in Ukraine's Donbas regions intensifies, reports of several casualties came Tuesday. Ukraine’s regional governor said three civilians were killed, and four more were injured Monday. Pavlo Kyrylenko said two people died in the town of Toretsk and one in the town of Avdiivka.

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) also said Monday that Russian forces reportedly control the northeast and southeast outskirts of the city of Severodonetsk. At the time of writing, they are continuing to move inwards, taking control of the city, Al Jazeera reported.
