Glukhov complained about Europe

Russian kickboxer Konstantin Glukhov has made an incredible claim that he faced aggression because of his language in Ukraine and Latvia, where he was born. The 44-year-old native of Riga repeated the Kremlin's selective nonsense about "nationalists" and Russophobia in Europe and in our country.

Glukhovs, who represented Latvia on the sports field until the mid-2000s and then fled to Russia, said this in an interview with the propaganda channel Match TV. He complained that in Kharkiv, where he lived at the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the aggressor army, he was insulted because of his language.

"My wife and I had a hard time in Europe, where Russophobia is strong, and Russians are either spoken of badly or not at all. Everyone is forced to speak Latvian, by local nationalists... I lived in Kharkiv for six years, even before the beginning of the war in Eastern Ukraine (as the war against Ukraine is shamefully called in Russia - ed.) There was no aggression, but as soon as the armed conflict started... A vivid example is when the shops were closed, we had to stand in long lines. I went out with my wife, and I was standing on the street. I spoke to someone in Russian. And someone behind me said: "Are you a Muscovite? You speak Russian so well," Glukhov said.

Earlier, mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Jeff Monson, who took Russian citizenship in the summer of 2018, issued a propaganda narrative about full democracy in the aggressor country.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, European Football Championship bronze medalist Roman Shirokov debunked the Kremlin's propaganda myths about the incredible patriotism of Russians.
