Zhirinovsky said that the Bolsheviks should "kneel"

The leader of LDPR, the Deputy of the state Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky said that the Bolsheviks should "kneel before the Russian people". A statement published in his telegram channel.

"The Russian Bolsheviks must kneel before the Russian people for what they are so much trouble and grief brought over the 73 years of the Soviet regime," wrote Zhirinovsky. Thus it will be possible not only to accept the blame for the "destruction of millions of people", but to redeem it, the MP said.
