Fighters of Ukrainian battalion ‘Azov’ have filmed a prankish video, in which they address to Dmitry Kiselyov, a Russian journalist who is often accused of fuelling anti-Ukrainian and anti-Western hysteria.
Fitting into the image of ‘mercenaries from the United States’, they were chanting slogan ‘No vodka, no Russia. Only Coca-Cola, only Barack Obama’ and displaying the U.S. flag.
Dmitry Kiselyov gained notoriety after he became an anchorman at Sunday’s news program on TV channel Rossiya 1. In his interpretation broadcasting news turns into shows of hatred in which he charged the Ukrainians and Western countries with intentional homicide and threatened the USA with ‘nuclear apocalypse’.
“Russia is the only country in the world that is realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” he said on his weekly current affairs show. Behind him was a backdrop of a mushroom cloud following a nuclear blast.
For his ‘loyalty’ he was promoted to Director of international informational agency Russia Today.
