Margarita Simonyan is shocked by a consular employee who said she hates Russians


Journalist Margarita Simonyan is horrified by the woman’s behavior.

The scandalous statement was made by an employee of the Norwegian consulate in Murmansk Elisabeth Ellingsen. Public and political figures of Russia were outraged by the words of the official.

The employees of the Murmansk hotel asked Elisabeth Ellingsen to wait until the cleaning of the room was finished. However, an impatient consular employee, indignant at the slow service, made an unexpected statement.

I hate Russians! I’m used to clean rooms, I’m from Scandinavia. Not like some Russian woman who cleans up anyhow. Can I even sleep in that bed? My God, what nonsense. I will stand by the door and watch the maid clean up, just give me the key. This hotel is a disgrace and you people in general are a disgrace”, shouted the diplomat from Oslo, accompanied by abuse.

The editor-in-chief of the RT television channel Margarita Simonyan did not stand aside and condemned the sharp statement of the official. She suggested expelling a Norwegian consular employee for extremist rhetoric.

In general, in a self-respecting country, such a consul would have already been expelled, since it is impossible to arrest on the 282nd. For the obvious incitement of ethnic hatred,” says the 42-year-old media manager.

Ksenia Sobchak also took the side of the public. In her Telegram channel, the 40-year-old journalist wrote: “It is a rare case when I agree with Margarita Simonyan. If you want to hate Russians, go home. “Azimuth”, of course, is a hole in the hole, but you are here on a visit and in the service, it is worth remembering this.

The police are checking, but the Ministry of Internal Affairs is not the only structure that is interested in loud phrases about hatred of Russians. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the agency would not disregard Ellingsen’s statement.

At the moment, the Russian Foreign Ministry is working out options for responding to this outrageous act of hatred, nationalism and xenophobia. Unless the Norwegian Foreign Ministry gets ahead of us. What would be right“, – says 46-year-old Zakharova.
