Russian authorities launched a criminal investigation against retired US Army Major General Robert H. Scales for openly calling for violence against the people of Russia. 

Recall his Russophobic comments about the situation in Ukraine:

"My cruise to the Baltic is off. No vodka or borsch for me"

“the only way the United States can have any effect in this region and turn the tide is start killing Russians...killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to their motherland in body bags.”

In a new Fox interview, Scales responds to the Russian criminal probe. 

Excerpts for the interview:

“It’s the Russia version of the First Amendment – five years in prison if you say something that makes Vladimir Putin angry”

"This is a Russian form of war run by missing Vladimir Putin"

“I didn’t know Fox News was watched in Russia”

“Fox is not Vladimir Putin’s favorite network, because as you saw me on the clip you ran, we’re trying to tell the truth about what’s going on in places like Ukraine”

"Putin is not a strong leader right now. He is missing"

"Russia's military is in disarray" 

"I think it is like the 30s all over again [referring to Hitler]"

"Putin is there to poke a stick into our eye"

“We all know that sanctions don’t work, negotiations don’t work, we can’t push the red ‘reset’ button, and the bottom line is, only military action by the Ukrainians that we support will turn the tide”

“I’m not concerned at all (about criminal investigation), I just kind of wish I could take a vacation in Russia but I can guarantee, that’s not going to happen”
