A Russian TV propagandist has threatened to send the modern-day Red Army to Germany like in World War II.
Vladimir Solovyov, known as Putin’s voice, recounted the dispatch of troops that thundered west through Europe to occupy the country.
The TV presenter fumed that German culture minister Claudia Roth alluded to the famous Ukrainian defenders of Snake Island telling the Russian warship to fool itself.
Speaking from Ukraine, Roth held up a Ukrainian stamp marking the standoff and repeatedly said, “This is Russia…F*** you.”
Her performance benefited her Ukrainian counterpart, Oleksandr Tkachenko.
Solvoyov said on his evening TV political talk show: “Do you think that after all these idiots, scoundrels, bullies and scoundrels in the [German] Government should we talk to them about something?
“It’s the German Minister of Education pretending to translate what’s on a stamp.
“So the stamp said something about a Russian warship. She told us all to get out.”
Solvoyov said it was impossible to talk to German ministers, indicating that it was better to send Russian troops back instead.
“What do we do now?” he asked.
“Again shaking the dust of Germanic graves with the mighty march of the Soviet boot?”
Without this, “there will never be an understanding,” he said.
“First they send their tanks east, which will soon be trampling on Russian soil again. And now we have this one, who of course poses as the Minister of Culture from the Greens.”

The threat is reminiscent of World War II clashes when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union as part of Operation Barbarossa.
However, their ambitious plan to dominate the west of the country failed due to overloaded supply lines, personnel problems and Soviet resistance.
Nazi troops began the invasion in the summer of 1941 from an extremely strong position, having conquered much of Europe.
Germany invaded despite signing a non-aggression pact with the Soviet Union in 1939.
The pact promised a period of military cooperation that allowed Hitler to ignore Western diplomatic moves and invade Poland at the start of World War II.
Soviet forces then attacked from the west, completing the subjugation and partition of the Polish state.
Their cooperation allowed Hitler to broaden his plans for European hegemony.
But peace with Russia did not last as Hitler wanted Germany to expand further east and gain more “living space” for the nation.
The dictator drew up plans to invade and replace what he saw as Stalin’s “Jewish Bolshevik” regime with Nazism.
In December 1940 Hitler ordered the invasion of the Soviet Union as part of his “Germanization plan” and stormed the country a few months later.
The army planned to advance toward northern Russia to a port on the Caspian Sea and bring most of the Soviet population and its economic potential under German control.
But his failure to defeat the Soviet troops marked a crucial turning point in the war and ultimately led to his defeat.
Soviet artillery resisted and began pushing German troops back into Europe, eventually attacking Berlin in April 1945.
The Soviet Army began shelling the German capital and didn’t stop until the city surrendered.
