State Duma member Zhuravlev stated that US Congressman Gallego was arrested and sent back to Russia for proposing to sell weapons to Ukraine and “kill Russians”.
In the TV series 60 minutes On December 15th, Alexei Zhulavlev, a member of the Russian State Duma and chairman of the Nationalist Rodina Party, described Americans as “parasites that do not understand history.”
The statement was issued by Zhuravlev after the Democratic Party members. America Ruben Gallego appeals to the presidential government over the weekend Joe Biden Take additional measures to prevent “aggressive behavior” Russia Neighboring countries have adopted sanctions against Russia and armed Ukraine.
In an interview in Kiev on December 12, Gallego also stated that the United States should provide Ukraine with more advanced weapons to disrupt Russia’s troop movement. “Unfortunately, this means we have to kill some Russians,” Gallego said.
This statement angered Zhulavlev, who believed that whenever a US congressman returned to Ukraine and was brought back to Russia to explain “who he wanted to kill”, he should monitor Gallego.
“If he goes anywhere, arrest him like Bout,” Zhulavlev said, referring to the Russian arms dealer Victor Bout who was arrested in 2010 and extradited from Thailand to the United States. Then, if he is released, let him say who he wants to kill. “
The host agreed, saying that Bout was imprisoned for “intention to sell drugs”, so Gallego may also be imprisoned for “intent to kill Russians.”
“This is how we should deal with such people,” Zhuravlev emphasized. “We can get him out of Ukraine, and they can’t do anything about it.”
Congressman Gallego then quoted an article on Zhulavlev’s statement on Twitter, as well as comments on “find it,” and the icon of the American flag.
Relations between the United States and Russia have recently been strained by issues such as the detention of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the build-up of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border, and a series of espionage scandals. The virtual summit between President Biden and Russian President Putin on December 7 did not achieve any breakthrough results in improving bilateral relations.
