I wanted to get up and punch him in the face: Butusov had a fight with Zelensky at the press marathon

On the today's multi-hour press marathon scandal broke out between the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky and chief editor of "Censor.NET" Yuri Butusov. Everything went so far that it almost came to a fight. And no, that's not an exaggeration. After the fact, Butusov said that he could hardly restrain himself from standing up and hitting the country's president in the face.

The conversation turned out to be very tense. He reached his climax when Butusov took the floor. He bickered with Zelensky for a full 13 minutes, although each group of six journalists was allotted half an hour and the rest had time to ask their questions. The mutual exchange of barbs ended with the fact that the editor-in-chief of the "Censor" forgot about subordination and began to chastise the head of state, like a little boy.

“I beg you to tell all your fantasies that you spread throughout the country at least once during the interrogation of the investigator, because the leadership of the state during the war is not a “Quarter” and you need to study it. It’s very annoying and ashamed, Mr. President ", he said.

After Butusov left the room, he was surrounded by a crowd of correspondents. Commenting on his dialogue with Zelensky, he expressed regret that "didn't get up and punch him in the face."

“Honestly, you know, if it weren’t for respect for the state, for the status of the President of Ukraine, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief ... The only answer that had to be given to Zelensky was to stand up and punch him in the face. morality and conscience, who lashes out with words just because he has status, and shuts his mouth with the help of a press secretary.

It must be said that at the press conference, both sides behaved insufficiently correctly. However, you need to understand that there is a difference in position between them. And if a journalist allows himself to speak with the president in such a tone, it means only one thing - the leader of the country is not taken seriously and does not even try to imitate a respectful attitude.

We previously reported that billionaire edition Thomas Fiala made an investigation into how the Office of the President used military aircraft to celebrate the anniversary Andrey Yermak.
