Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of the Russian-state-owned broadcaster RT, predicted on Monday that World War III will “definitely” break out in the Middle East.

In a series of posts to X, formerly Twitter, Simonyan, who the U.S. State Department deems a Kremlin propagandist, raised questions about when world powers, including the United States, would spark a major conflict, although she claimed that Russia will sit out of the impending war.

“And now the third world war,” Simonyan posted to X Monday evening. “Whether a world war will break out now or a little later depends on whether Washington believes that it will be useful to it now, before the elections, or vice versa. Judging by the choral silence of the American media, they are still thinking.”


“A world war will definitely start,” Simonyan said in a separate post on Monday. “And with almost complete probability – precisely in the Middle East.”

Several countries apart of the NATO military alliance have taken steps to prepare for the chance of the war in Ukraine breaking into other parts of Europe.

Biden has also warned of the U.S. being pulled into a direct conflict with Russia if Moscow is successful in its goals in Ukraine, urging Congress in a statement in December to sign off on additional military aid to send to Kyiv.

Putin has also warned about taking greater action against Western countries for their support of Kyiv’s military, telling reporters on New Year’s Day that Moscow’s real enemy was not Ukraine itself but those “who want to destroy Russian statehood and to achieve, as they say, a strategic defeat of Russia on the battlefield.”

“Therefore, though it has been their goal to deal with Russia from time immemorial, we will deal with them faster, it seems,” Putin added, referring to Western allies like the U.S.
