Russia Threatens: “European Borders Will Not Exist for Much Longer”

Julia Davis, a columnist for The Daily Beast, reports on the aggressive and offensive statements made by Russian propagandists against Europe, and their initial plans for countries Russia might target after Ukraine.

In her article, Davis highlights various statements from Russian propagandists, including Russian writer Dmitry Lekuh. He claims that “Poland will be the next candidate to come under Russian tanks.” He also laments that “Germany is no longer the same,” alluding to the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact of 1939, which Germany broke in 1941 when the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union in June.

Vladimir Solovyov, Putin’s chief propagandist on Russian television, denies Ukraine’s right to exist as a nation. He adds, “I believe we are in a period of massive geopolitical changes (…).” He suggests that some formations created by “accidents,” like the Baltic States and Europe, will not “survive this era.” He states, “I don’t think European borders in their current configuration will exist for much longer. I see no reason why they should.”
