Cheerleader No. 1 Putin Rips Russia’s War Failures

Russia’s master propagandist Vladimir Solovyov has been spending his weekends on the front lines of the campaign to support and promote Russia’s surprise invasion of Ukraine. Unfortunately for the Kremlin, all that time facing a grim reality taught Solovyov just how bad this war is.

In a loud voice on Thursday, Solovyov attacked the general strategy, saying that the Russian Army was failing to suppress their enemies and said that he had first-hand evidence of stupid tactical mistakes on the front.

During his Full Contact program, Solovyov was angry about the recent announcement that Ukraine will soon receive Abrams and Leopard-2 tanks from NATO countries. The host began his speech with a deep sigh, asking: “Well, have we lived long enough to see this?” He urged the audience not to trust the number of tanks that will be deployed, predicting that they will send more: “They will give everything. I’ve been saying it for a while, these bastards are going to bring Hitler back into our lives… this is where everything is going… WWIII is going on and the West is back to their Nazi roots. Germany got tired of hiding its Nazi nature and eventually America openly admitted its Nazi ways.”

Calling the Americans “keeping lies,” Solovyov said their arrogance was Russia’s fault: “We do not pose any threats to them. We do not strike against New York, we do not attack Washington, we do not threaten Miami, we do nothing to endanger Americans. They blew up our pipelines, we just wipe our face. They deliver heavy tanks, we wipe our face. Stop talking about red lines! I An empty phrase that means nothing!”

Enraged, Solovyov shouted: “Berlin, Paris, Madrid, London, Washington should burn!” The heads of the Nazi countries that decided to go to war with Russia … Why Kyiv was not wiped off the face of the earth after the Nazi community of Ukraine made a strike against the center our airline policy? Stop saying empty, empty words!”

The host continued: “Attacks are being made against our cities! Against our country! Russian soldiers perish! Russians are dying! The Nazis are happy! How do we plan to respond? By whining that avoiding nuclear war is the most important thing? So why the heck do we have such a smart and smart nuclear arsenal? Afraid to use it? So the decorated senior commanders would go, “Do you want nuclear war?” Do you want the destruction of Russia with conventional weapons, which NATO countries have 3 and a half times more than us?

Solovyov shouted that destroying Ukrainian buildings was not enough. He wanted to know: “Why are Odesa, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk [Dnipro] still there?” He shouted angrily: “We don’t live near Kyiv anymore! Was it a good voluntary act? A good deed? And Kharkiv was a good gesture? No one was shot dead for [surrendering] Kharkiv! No one was sent to retire, at least not publicly. The public did not get answers to their questions. I ask you, why did you move the front area near Belgorod? We are still not back to those levels! To respond—to be silent. Be quiet.”

Solovyov demanded that the enemies be destroyed “in their country”: “Citizens of NATO countries should not feel at peace, while the Russian man is suffering… Citizens! War has been declared against us. Wake up! Wake up.”

Solovyov’s guest, military reporter Alexander Kots, revealed one of the reasons for the guest’s unhelpful anger: the ineffectiveness and ineffectiveness of the invading forces with their military leadership. Speaking about the new items planned to be delivered to Ukraine by NATO countries, Kots said: “Even though we have this list, only on paper at the moment, we need to start thinking about what we are going to do when it all comes to the fore. Somehow, we have to counter their gun systems and tanks. Last month, over the holidays, as a member of the president’s Human Rights Council, I was get angry and concerned messages from their [soldiers’] relatives. We trained—I won’t say how many, but a respectable number of armed forces, but all of them were sent to the infantry. This is a huge number of people, we have been training them for three months, we are using guns, we are spending money to house them, the best instructors from our military universities—to including the Mikhailovskaya Artillery Military Academy—they were fans it is in their time and knowledge to train them. . As for our guns, it’s a very sad story…we have no gun schools left! We had eleven and now only Mikhailovskaya is left.”

Solovyov said that he knew about this problem because of his previous travels. Kots added that the same thing is happening with the anti-tank divisions, describing them as “the groups that should have been the ones that are meeting this Armada tank, burning those Abrams tanks and Leopard. Instead, for some reason, they are also transferred to babies. I don’t understand why this happens… We trained experts, we trained them well, but they sat without being given proper jobs… Spring, very wasteful on our part.

Solovyov said: “I understand that you don’t fight tanks with tanks, you use other methods. Our anti-tank punch should be ready.” Kots hit him on the head with news. worse: “The first line of defense that these tanks will encounter will usually be the assembled men. Our soldiers gathered at the front are armed only with Kalashnikovs. Unfortunately, there are no anti-tank weapons on most front lines. ”

Solovyov returned to his favorite topic, saying that it was only a matter of time before NATO gave the Ukrainians tactical nuclear weapons. He said, “I believe that the use of nuclear weapons is inevitable. The question is who will do it first: us or them. ” Playing along, Kots pointed out: “The tanks being transported contain depleted uranium.” After Solovyov realized that depleted uranium is not radioactive, Kots made this suggestion: “It can still be used as a cover, for using our tactical nuclear weapons.”

But even his trademark threat of nuclear devastation to Russia’s opponents failed to bring this propagandist even a modicum of mainstream satisfaction. Introducing his next guest, Solovyov complained angrily: “I’m sad. This is all very sad.”
