An enraged Russian politician urged Vladimir Putin to drop a NUCLEAR BOMB on Istanbul as revenge for Turkey shooting down a jet bomber.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky called for the extermination of nine million by annihilating the Turkish city during a radio interview.
“A nuclear attack can destroy Istanbul very easily. Just one nuclear bomb in the Istanbul Strait will wash the city away,” he told Moscow Speaking Radio.
It is not the first time the wild man of Russian politics has made controversial and shocking statements.
He attacked a pregnant journalist during a press conference, telling an aide to “rape the woman hard”.
Zhirinovsky is seen ranting at Stella Dubovitskaya who needed to be treated in hospital for shock afterwards, telling her she should stay at home instead of going to work.
The reporter for state-funded Russia Today asked a question, leading the far right Liberal Democratic Party founder to shout the obscenities.
At one point he pushes two male aides towards her shouting: “When I say, you run to her and rape the woman hard” and “Go and kiss her. Grab her.”
Zhirinovsky also apologised later on Russian TV and offered to pay any of Dubovitskaya’s medical bills.
He also reacted furiously to bearded lady Conchita Wurst’s Eurovision win, branding it “the end of Europe”.
