(This is from an interview with Russian science fiction author Sergei Lukyanenko. Anton Krasovsky is director of broadcasting at the Russian state funded RT)
Sergei: I went to Ukraine for the first time in 1980 as a child. Over there, Ukrainian children would tell me that Ukraine is occupied by Moskals, that if not for Moskals, they would live like France and that they’re suffering under occupation. Those were not Ukrainian-speaking Ukrainian children, these were around and they were normal, they were Russian-speakers, with Russian surnames.
Anton: They should have been drowned in the Tysyna [river] right there, where the Duckings swim. Just drown those children, drown them right in the Tysyna. That’s not your method, because you sci-fi writers are intelligent people, but it is our method. Whoever says that Moskals occupied them, you throw them in the river with a strong undercurrent
