Russian TV presenter Vladimir Soloviev was included in the list of persons whose stay in Latvia is undesirable. This was announced by the head of the Latvian Foreign Ministry Edgar Rinkevich.

He explained the decision by the fact that for Latvia "glorification of Nazism in any form is unacceptable".

In turn, Vladimir Soloviev in an interview with RIA Novosti said that he would discuss with a lawyer the issue of going to court in connection with the ban on entry into the country.

It's worth reminding that Solovyov said in his program on the Russia-1 channel that opposition leader Alexei Navalny does not deserve respect. The TV presenter compared him to Adolf Hitler and the German saboteur Otto Skorzeny. Solovyov called the latter "an uncompromising man". Hitler, according to the host, "fought valiantly during the First World War".

"Hitler was an extremely brave man. Unlike the codpiecefuehrer (Alexey Navalny - ed.), He did not mow away from the army. He fought and fought valiantly during the First World War", - said Soloviev.

This assessment of Hitler from the TV presenter caused outrage on the network. Users saw in the words of the TV presenter a criminal article for justifying Nazism.

Deputy Valery Rashkin filed an appeal to the Prosecutor General with a request to check the TV presenter's statements for the rehabilitation of Nazism.

Recall that Solovyov has already shot a film about the leader of fascist Italy Benito Mussolini.
