Vladimir Putin stooge calls for failing Russian generals to be executed over Ukraine humiliation

  • Margarita Simonyan told Russia Today failed WWII generals faced firing squads
  • She was speaking after Russian forces were forced to retreat by Ukrainians 
  • General Dmitry Pavlov was executed following Operation Barbarossa in 1941
  •  Miss Simonyan said the successive defeats had made her physically unwell

One of Russia’s chief propagandists has suggested that the country’s generals should be executed for their humiliating run of defeats in Ukraine.

Margarita Simonyan reminded Russia Today viewers how Second World War leaders faced firing squads after their troops were defeated.

She was speaking as Russian forces remained on the back foot in Ukraine after conceding territory in the southern province of Kherson.

Yesterday Vladimir Putin signed into law his illegal annexation of four provinces of Ukraine where he pledged to ‘stabilise’ security – even though Kremlin troops have lost ground in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaphorizhzhia.

In the last province, Putin also claimed ownership of Europe’s largest nuclear plant.

Miss Simonyan remarks in a television debate were the latest indication of the shock felt in Moscow at the state of the conflict.

She cited the example of General Dmitry Pavlov, a Russian commander who faced a firing squad after his numerically superior forces were routed by the Germans at the start of Operation Barbarossa – the German invasion of Russia in 1941. 

However, she failed to mention how, decades later, General Pavlov was pardoned after an investigation found he could not realistically have achieved the military objectives expected by Kremlin officials.

Miss Simonyan implied recent retreats were similar to the collapse of Russia’s western front eight decades ago. She said that Russian commanders in Ukraine had demonstrated ‘cowardice’ in their ‘unauthorised withdrawal from strategic positions’ and their ‘collapse’.

She said: ‘I am quoting formulations under which the Western Front commander [Pavlov] was executed by firing squad in July 1941.’

Miss Simonyan added that recent failures by Russian forces had made her physically unwell.

She said: ‘Mourning and panicking is playing into enemy hands and working indirectly – but still working – for the success of the collective CIA.’

Vladimir Putin is yet to execute any generals but senior officers have been relieved of command since the invasion began in February.

Another Putin propagandist Vladimir Solovyov claimed that Russia was experiencing ‘the most difficult moment of our history’ due to its defeats in Ukraine.
