The latest target of Solovyov’s ire is Joseph Borrell, the head of European diplomacy, after he called Russia a “fascist” country. A spokesman for the European official later said his comments had been mistranslated.
“Look at this admirer of his [Francisco] Franco! To that successor of the Blue Division who fought against the Soviet Union and took part in the siege of Leningrad! Look at that puffy, disgusted face!” He is surprised.
It is not clear what connection Solovyov sees between Borel and Franco, the only thing the two have in common is Spanish nationality. While Franco was a right-wing dictator that historians see as having overtones of fascism, Borel was a well-known socialist politician in Spain before entering European politics.

The Blue Division, referred to by the Russian television host, was a unit of Spanish volunteers enlisted to fight on the Eastern Front against Bolshevism in World War II. Although recruited by the Spanish Armed Forces, the unit was officially the Wehrmacht, a battalion within the German Army and maintained a policy of neutrality during the war, despite Spain’s ideological closeness to the Axis powers.

And about your comrades who came to our lands,” he said in the war. Mentions the number of Soviet citizens who are said to have died.
“How dare you open your pathetic mouth to put the words ‘fascist’ and ‘Russia’ together? You support Nazis in Ukraine! You are happy to see Russians killed! You listen to it”, he concludes his monologue, which even his guests from the Rossiya-1 station. Astounding.
