Demands strike on London's parliament

A segment of Vladimir Solovyov’s show was shared on Twitter on Sunday 12 February with English subtitles by Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. In the clip, he asks his audience:

Can't we finally strike at London? What is the problem?

He added:

No, no, no—only at military targets. Well, at the parliament, too.

Solovyov continued to blame Western allies for arming Ukraine, and consequently allowing it to strike territory that Russia claims but is not recognised by the West, such as Crimea. He said:

Well, they're going to give planes [to Ukraine] to strike deep into Russia's territory. At the same time, they cunningly say: 'No, well, we just don't recognize Crimea as Russia'.

He added:

You will now determine what Russia is for you? Not the people in Russia will determine it, not a referendum, not a vote, but you will determine what Russia is for us?

Solovyov then referred to the Kremlin’s widely dismissed claims that the West's support of Ukraine is encouraging neo-Nazism and Russophobia:

In this case we will not recognize at all—for us then there is no England at all. No France. No Germany. Instead, there are Nazi states united by hatred for everything Russian,
And so let's get serious. Do they think there are no red lines? OK. Well, let's show them that there are no more red lines. Let's strike! So that the fist would ring.

He went on to describe French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak as 'Nazi b*****ds'.
