Self-proclaimed psychic Uri Geller has stepped in to pull the world back from the brink of World War 3 with a truly mind-bending warning to Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The illusionist and TV personality, who has seemingly added master negotiator and savant of international geopolitics to his CV, yesterday posted a dramatic video to Twitter in which he personally called out Putin for nuclear sabre-rattling.
‘I have a warning for you, Putin,’ the British-Israeli spoonbender proclaimed dramatically as he postured in front of a huge screen displaying a backdrop of the Kremlin chief and a nuclear mushroom cloud.
‘I urge you all to read my warning, all of you,’ he continued, before stepping forward and pushing his face to within an inch of the camera to declare: ‘And I’m serious about it. Very!’
The bizarre video was quickly topped moments later when Geller posted an even more outrageous letter to Putin, threatening to use ‘every last molecule of my Mind Power to prevent you from launching a nuclear attack’.
He went on to implore social media users to ‘just take five seconds out of your day to visualise a radiant, energetic force field – like a dazzling, golden shield in the sky’ that he claimed would deflect any nuclear warheads deployed by the Kremlin, turning them back to destroy Russia.
The tweets quickly garnered a hailstorm of incredulous replies from other users, despite the obviously watertight scientific basis of Geller’s touchingly humanistic plan.

‘I’ve now tried to project by radiant, energetic force field but it wasn’t so much dazzling and golden, more sort of a 20 watt bulb glow,’ one user quipped.
‘It did startle a passing pigeon so I think I’m ready to take on a huge supersonic ICBM.’
‘Are you off your meds again, Charles Xavier?’ another retorted, referencing the fictional psychic professor portrayed by Patrick Stewart in the X-Men series.
Others meanwhile picked up on Geller’s concern over the impact of a nuclear missile strike on Scotland.
‘I know Nicola (Sturgeon) is a bit annoying at times but that would be overkill. Ps. we wouldn’t really miss Glasgow. Might not retaliate.’ one tweet read.
