“The sprat imagined itself to be a submarine.” Nevzorov believes that Russia wants to start a war against the West

“We saw this entire NATO meeting. This concerns all the latest efforts of Russian diplomacy, where the Russian Deputy Minister [Сергей Рябков] he begged war from NATO, just like a drug addict, having lost all decency,” he said.

The publicist recalled former US President Ronald Reagan, who at one time returned after negotiations with the USSR “and laughed for a long time directly on American television”, that “it is not I who should talk to these people, but psychiatrists. They seriously believe that we can attack them.”

“There are people who need war, there are people who don’t need war. There are two clear categories. They love to fight, they love stripes, they love epaulettes and drumming. They like all this military crap, but they don’t want to fight. And we must understand that now in the eyes of NATO and humanity, Russia is a dangerous madman. He is driven by his conspiracy theories, and he always shows either a new razor or a new box of matches, he shakes, “Nevzorov described the situation.

He noted that in the current situation, “even the eternally indifferent and eternally neutral Swedes trembled, from whom the index of those wishing to join NATO suddenly took and how it jumped by some huge number of percent,” not to mention other countries.

“The situation is still hanging. Ryabkov, who dangled after the war [на переговоры с США] to Geneva, he returned without a war, as if spat upon. In general, a heavy sight of a sprat, which imagined itself to be a submarine. And the furious sprat is also another sight,” Nevzorov said.

According to him, Russia’s “deep mission is to call America Pindos, Europe – geyropa and be rude to everyone, no other mission can be traced.”
