A longtime Russian lawmaker suggests his country kidnap a NATO defense minister in Ukraine, then interrogate him in Moscow to find out more about the ‘orders’ the alliance is giving to Kyiv during the war .

Oleg Morozov, a member of the main United Russia party, proposed the idea on Monday evening during an appearance on state television, according to Reuters.

“You know, maybe it’s a fantastic plot that I’ve been brewing…that in the near future, at some point, a minister of war from a NATO country will go into train to Kyiv to talk with [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelenskyy,” Morozov reportedly said. “But he wouldn’t make it. And wake up somewhere in Moscow.”

“You mean we take them off? the show host then asked.

“Yes. And then we would figure out who gave what order for what, who is responsible for what exactly,” Morozov replied, according to Reuters. “It’s not such a mythical image… There are new rules in the world now. Let all those ministers of war gathered in Kyiv think a little about what it would be like to wake up in Moscow.”

Morozov, who has served in Russia’s parliament since 1993, made the remarks in the wake of recent train rips to Kyiv by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
