Threats of Kremlin propaganda to "hit Germany" due to the supply of Leopard tanks to Ukraine will only contribute to military aid to Kyiv from Western allies.

This opinion was expressed in an exclusive interview with by the Russian oppositionist, ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation

Ilya Ponomaryov

, commenting on the relevant statement of propagandist

Volodymyr Solovyov



These people are simply crazy. They threaten already after the decision has been made

. From the rational point of view of the Russian attitude to the situation, from the point of view of the strategic goal, it is necessary to threaten so that these people are intimidated and do not take this or that step. But when a step already done, it causes nothing but a smile," he emphasized.

According to the former deputy of the State Duma, "

such threats from the point of view of nuclear weapons are not taken seriously


"This is proof that everything was done correctly - look at their reaction, there was no need to be afraid even before that. Decisions about the next steps will be made easier," Ponomaryev explained.

It will be recalled that after German Chancellor

Olaf Scholz

declared that the West should not let Moscow win the war, Russian propagandist

Volodymyr Solovyov

hysterically expressed himself, saying that Russian troops should be sent to Berlin and Paris.

He also complained that after World War II, "the Americans occupied part of Europe."

After Scholz's decision to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, Solovyov called on the Kremlin to bomb Germany in response.

The propagandist said that the Germans should "know what kind of new Nazi leaders they have raised and brought to power."

In turn, the President of Ukraine, 

Volodymyr Zelenskyi

 , thanked for the military assistance and stated the need to form such a tank fist, after the blows of which tyranny will no longer rise.
