The guy in the video is Vladimir Zhirinovsky
. He's a radical anti-semitic Russian
In the late 80's and 90's (at a time when Russia was experiencing serious internal turmoil and financial problems) Zhirinovsky ran for the highest
office in the land, and due to his popularity, was considered a serious (and extremely dangerous) threat to world stability. Some in the German media
at the time even denounced him as 'Russia's Hitler"
. However, due to his
love of drink and promotion of 'free sex' (and violent temper) he fortunately lost all credibility with the Russian public and has all but since
disappeared off the world stage.
I recall seeing a TV interview with him once many years ago in which he claimed he was offered $400m to quit world politics by a concerned individual
(which he refused) - such was the fear of this lunatic.
One of his famous quotes was:
"I am the Almighty. I am the Tyrant.
I will follow in Hitler's footsteps."
The Zhirinovsky Connection
According to current day media reports he is again running for the Russian presidency in 2012 and his party is expected to come third after candidates
from the ruling United Russia Party (Putin or Medvedev) and the Communist Party. Russian Duma speaker Zhirinovsky to run for presidency in 2012
It also appears Zhirinovsky may be insane or at best schizophrenic. Ive found 2 recent media articles which in one of them he calls on the Muslim
world to unite and support Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi
against NATO. In the other he urges the
West and Russia to unite & destroy Islam
