"Geostrategist in panties": Russian Olympic champion mocked online after he called Usyk a clown and talked about poverty in Ukraine
Four-time Olympic champion Alexander Tikhonov insulted unified world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. The former biathlete from the aggressor country called idiocy the desire of the boxer to become President of Ukraine, not catching the irony in the words of our compatriot, and became a laughingstock in the network.
Tikhonov said this with his usual bitterness in an interview with the propaganda news agency RIA Novosti. The Russian, who strongly supports the war in Ukraine, also ridiculed Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klitschko and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
"It is impossible to think of greater idiocy. There is already one boxer - the mayor of Kyiv. They have plundered and ruined everything. It's just a punishment, poverty, so many people have left the country. Usik's decision causes me nothing but laughter. Mind your own business. Ukraine is the richest land, and when morons and clowns rule the state, the country will never restore the economy. So there will be another clown. I have great respect for sports results, but mind your own business. I very much doubt that he has such knowledge," Tikhonov said.
Sports.ru readers openly mocked the Olympic champion. They reminded Tikhonov that there are competitive elections in Ukraine, while the economy of Russia itself is barely breathing.
"Assuming that it was just a joke from Usik, Tikhonov and his kind lack intelligence", "Tikhonov, remember Reagan? They called him a clown," "It's better to change clowns every four years than never to change a geostrategist in panties," "At least you can choose among morons," "Ironic commentary, given the state of the economy of the Russian Federation," they wrote in the comments.
Earlier, former world heavyweight champion Denis Lebedev repeated Vladimir Zhirinovsky's nonsense that Ukraine will not exist in the future and repeated the Kremlin propaganda narratives about the European Union, where "they rush to marry kittens, dogs."
As reported OBOZREVATEL, two-time Olympic champion Dmitry Vasiliev called the words of Alexander Usik about the desire to run for President a PR and complained that "Ukraine is embittered towards us".
