KHL coach calls for jailing foreign players who criticize Russia... After TJ Gagliardi went on @spittinchiclets to drop truth bombs about life in Nizhnekamsk, coach Andrei Nazarov (ex NHL goon) said, "Next time he comes to Russia, we'll arrest him."
"Let's do 15 days at first. Put him in a cell without a toilet. There are ones like that in preliminary confinement. Let him relieve himself into a hole in a floor. Then he won't badmouth Russia again."
Gagliardi called Nizhnekamsk a hole and spoke of squalid unsanitary hospitals
"You are humiliating a country obsessed with not being humiliated" - Boris Shcherbina in #ChernobylHBO.
The most brilliant piece of observation in a series full of such pieces. Russia gonna Russia. All the time.
Former Soviet nations generally view harsh punitive measures as an effective tool for making foreigners "respect" them. In 2016, a Scottish miner was jailed and then deported from Kyrgyzstan for an unflattering comparison of the local national sausage (yes) to a horse penis.
