Putin ally threatens European country Germany

Russian propagandist and TV host Vladimir Solovyov is known for his undying support of Vladimir Putin. As rumours around the Russian President’s alleged death circulate, a video has been posted to X which shows Solovyov going on a rant about a certain European country.

In the video, posted by the Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko, Solovyov states that Germany will soon exist ‘under a Russian flag’. This comes as Putin revokes Russia’s ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, a global treaty that bans nuclear weapons tests. So, what does Russia have against Germany, and what exactly did Solovyov say?

Germany’s support of Ukraine

Solovyov claimed that Germany initially promised to supply only medicine and helmets to Ukraine’s military but ‘after a while’ this changed to: ‘We'll supply anything they need’.

Germany has indeed been a strong supporter of Ukraine throughout the Russia-Ukraine war. Just last month, its defence ministry announced a new support package made up of weapons, vehicles, air defences. The package is worth close to £1 billion.

Solovyov, who has a history of making wild claims and threats on behalf of Russia, has taken issue with Germany’s decision to help Ukraine.

What Solovyov said

Putin has employed a relentless denazification rhetoric throughout his ‘special military operation’ against Ukraine, and Solovyov parrots this. He stated on the Kremlin-controlled Russia-1 TV channel:

If Germany continues to be ruled by Nazis, Germany will have the same fate as every time anti-Russian rulers came to power in Germany.
It always ended with a Russian soldier entering Berlin.

He continued his rant, saying that ‘since the 18th century’ Russia has ‘taken Berlin several times’:

We will take it again if we have to. But this time we won’t leave.

Another guest chipped in with a tempering comment, saying ‘Germany and Berlin will exist'. Solovyov didn’t miss a beat in clarifying:

Of course they will, but under a Russian flag.

His message is clear, but it is important to bear in mind that he is not the decision-maker. As for Putin’s deratification of the nuclear ban treaty, Reuteurs has reported the following:

Moscow says its deratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) is merely designed to bring Russia into line with the United States, which signed but never ratified the treaty. Russia will not resume nuclear testing unless Washington does, say Russian diplomats.

Only time will tell if this turns out to be true.
