    Svanidze and Shevchenko come to blows on the air over Stalin

    Nikolai Svanidze and Maxim Shevchenko fought on the air of the Komsomolskaya Pravda radio station. This happened during their discussion about the film The Death of Stalin.*

    "Stalin brought the country to a catastrophic state up to the war with Hitler. And by the end of 1941, there were 3.8 million people in German captivity," Svanidze said.

    "Unlike France, the Soviet Union did not stand on its knees, waving to the Germans. The Soviet Union fought," Shevchenko replied and added that Svanidze "is spitting on the graves of those killed near Moscow."

    Svanidze in response called Shevchenko "the ultimate bastard." 

    "Maybe I'm a bastard, but you spit on the graves," Shevchenko said.

    "If you were closer, you'd get your face smashed in," Svanidze threatened. 

    "Yes please, here I am, go right ahead Try it! Smash me in the face. Get up. Come on! What did you say?" shouted Shevchenko in reply.

    The participants in the discussion exchanged blows. They were separated by radio station employees.
