RT propagandist Anton Krasovsky said he did not change his mind about the need to "drown and burn Ukrainian children." He stated this in a stream on the YouTube channel "Unusual Tsarism", and this was noticed by the Telegram channel of Ksenia Sobchak "The Bloody Lady".
Journalists of the Sobchak channel claim that Krasovsky got drunk right during the broadcast.
The authors of the stream asked Krasovsky questions about his attitude towards Ukrainians and a statement made last year:
— How much do you love crests? X-men.
- Khokhlov? Yes, I fucked them in the mouth, to be honest.
So you're either not a Christian...
- I didn’t say that they should be killed, although I once said that “it is necessary to drown and burn”
- Yes! It was so!
— Have you changed your attitude towards Ukrainian children since then?
After the propagandist's reply, the hosts began to laugh out loud.
The Russian Investigative Committee did not find corpus delicti in Krasovsky’s calls to “drown and burn Ukrainian children.” The propagandist made the first statement about this during an interview with writer Sergei Lukyanenko in 2022. Four days after the release of the interview and the threat of losing his job at RT, Krasovsky apologized several times and said that he was "really embarrassed." At the same time, he decided to ask for forgiveness from those who were “stunned” by his words, and not from the Ukrainians themselves.
“Listen, I’m really embarrassed that I somehow didn’t see this border. About children. Well, it happens like this: you sit on the air, you are carried. And you can't stop,” said the propagandist.
Also in a four-minute video published on the Telegram channel , Krasovsky called himself a “fool” several times and said in defense that he was on the air dozens of times a month and “brokes” him somewhere from time to time.
"I'm a fool, I didn't just cross the line, I erased it unintentionally... I think about every child, every mother, every family."
This is not the only scandalous statement of the propagandist about the war in Ukraine. In July 2022, Krasovsky published an entry about his trip to eastern Ukraine and complained that there was "not enough Vinnitsa". The day before, on July 14, Vinnitsa was shelled by the Russian military, killing at least 27 people, including three minor children.
