GOP Senator Was Just Busted With Grandson Of Stalin Confidante On Russian Television: Watch

A Kremlin-funded television station featured images of Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) rubbing shoulders with Vyacheslav Nikonov, the grandson of Joseph Stalin’s foreign minister.

Shelby’s appearance was first pointed out by Russian media analyst Julia Davis, who noted that the Republican senator appeared on VTGRK, a new Russian government-funded news stations.

“GOP lawmakers requested that their meetings with members of the Russian government proceed in a closed format (no press allowed),” Davis wrote. “Here is @SenShelby chitchatting with [Vyacheslav Molotov’s] grandson, Vyacheslav Nikonov.”

“Happy #IndependenceDay,” she added, later calling Shelby’s visit “surreal.”
