One of the Kremlin’s top propagandists has suggested Russia should invade Germany next after feeling offended by a “f*** you” stamp.
Vladimir Solovyov, a TV propagandist often dubbed “Putin’s mouth,” fumed at German culture minister Claudia Roth after she received a gift from her Ukrainian counterpart Oleksandr Tkachenko.
Two stamps she was given showed the sinking of the flagship Moskva and alluded to the famous Ukrainian defenders of Snake Island telling the Russian warship to fool itself.
Ms Roth laughed and repeated the phrase “This is Russia….F*** you” several times in English during their meeting with Mr Tkachenko on a trip to Odessa on Tuesday.
During Tuesday’s edition of his evening program on Russia-1, Mr Solovyov replied that it was impossible to speak to German ministers – saying it would be better to send Russian troops back instead.
“Do you think that after all these idiots, scoundrels, bullies, and scoundrels in the [German] government should we talk to you about something?” he asked.
“It’s the German Minister of Education pretending to translate what’s on a stamp.
‘Well, the stamp said something about a Russian warship. She told us all to fuck off.
Then he asked, “What do we do now? Shake up the dust of Germanic graves with the mighty march of the Soviet boot?’
Without this there will “never be an understanding,” he claimed, adding: “First they send their tanks to the East, they will soon be trampling on Russian soil again, and now we have this one man posing as the culture minister, of course by the Greens.”
Solovyvov also recently claimed that nuclear war was brewing and that “bloody pages of world history” would soon be entered.
Speaking on Russia 1, he said: “I hope we can get through this.
“If things continue as they have been, only a few mutants will survive in Lake Baikai. The rest will be destroyed by a massive nuclear strike.
“Because if NATO decides they can place whatever they want on our borders, they will send more and more American weapons to Ukraine, Ukraine will fire and end up hitting one of our nuclear plants, and there we go.”
Putin himself has threatened nuclear war on numerous occasions – but Boris Johnson has previously insisted the situation is not as dangerous as was believed.
“There will come a point when you (Putin) will say to the Russian people: ‘The military-technical operation that we launched in Ukraine is complete, it was a technical success,'” he said.
“I think he has a lot more political leeway than people care about.
“People say we have to make a concession, we have to worry about what Putin might do about the risk of his defeat. I think he has a lot of space, he has a lot of scope.”
