Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of extreme right-wing Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), was pelted with sour cabbage during a news conference in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
The woman who threw pickled cabbage salad at Vladimir Zhirinovsky accused him of being a “Ukrainophobe.”
“Where are my bodyguards? Remove this schizophrenic woman!” Vladimir Zhirinovsky shouted, before asking journalists at the news conference to explain what the word “Ukrainophobe” meant.
“It means that you don’t love Ukraine,” they said, but Vladimir Zhirinovsky protested that he had always called for friendly relations between Russia and Ukraine.
“There is not a milligram of anti-Ukrainian feelings in Russia,” he said as the news conference continued.
