The most well-known presenter on Russian television, Vladimir Solovyov, who cracked down on Spain last January after calling for them to “burn Madrid down”, has returned to the charges against our country. This time, he focused his criticism on EU High Representative Josep Borrell.
Solovyov described the former foreign minister as an “enemy of the Russian people and the Slavs” between 2018 and 2020 who blocked peace and “caused the deaths of thousands of Ukrainians” during the war. “Crazy people like him did everything to ensure that no agreements were reached in Istanbul. “Borrell, who supports the destruction of Orthodox culture in Ukraine, is a representative of a colonizing country,” he said.
He said the same about Spain. “Bearers of the same guilt as Spain, which is the evil of the world, which for centuries wore the crown of the evil of the world.” However, our country was not the only one involved in his speech. In January, he already criticized countries like the USA, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Earlier in the year, he also called on all of these countries to “burn” their respective capitals.
A few words on the delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine by the governments of the above-mentioned countries “They blew up our pipelines. They’re delivering heavy tanks. Berlin, Paris, Madrid, London, and Washington should be on fire. “Why wasn’t Kiev erased from the face of the earth?” he mused months ago.
On the other hand, on the previous occasion, he issued this warning. “The Third World War is already underway.” Referring to the European countries, he emphasized that Germany had given the go-ahead for the deployment of Leopard 2 main battle tanks. “Germany must be defeated,” he declared, at the same time referring to “the atrocities of the German Nazis and their lap dogs.” “.
Contempt for key German government officials in January
As for the contempt expressed by this moderator on other occasions, the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, was already the target of his speech, although not the only one. He also targeted key members of the federal government, such as German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, whom he described as “garbage”.
