Ignorant Cameron insults bravery of 27 million slain Russians

In an interview with Sunday's Channel Four News at weekend commemorations in London to mark the 70th anniversary of the Second World War, Mr Cameron observed to interviewer, Matt Frei, "The United Kingdom stood alone against Hitler."
This is an appallingly ignorant and insulting thing to say, considering the Soviet Union lost 27 million of its citizens in the battle to defeat the Nazis. Such ignorance compounds the fact the UK refused to send a senior political representative to Moscow for Russia's own commemorations, due to petty diplomatic differences.
This sends a very poor and ill-considered message Russia as the Conservatives begin majority government.
