Good riddance to very bad rubbish:

Vladimir V. Zhirinovsky, a veteran Russian politician who served as both ultranationalist firebrand and clownish provocateur in the Kremlin’s carefully managed political system, died on Wednesday. He was 75.

The chairman of Russia’s lower house of Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin, told lawmakers that Mr. Zhirinovsky had died “after a serious and lengthy illness.” Mr. Zhirinovsky was admitted to a hospital in Moscow with Covid-19 in February, the Russian Health Ministry said.

He gained so much attention throwing a glass of orange juice at the opposition politician Boris Nemtsov on live television in the 1990s that it became a signature move, in which he doused other politicians from time to time in parliament.

He once suggested that Russia take back Alaska and was an avowed fan of Donald J. Trump. “Long live Donald Trump!” Mr. Zhirinovsky said at one point during the 2016 American presidential campaign, while admonishing Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump’s Democratic opponent, to withdraw, accusing her of being a warmonger.During a televised Russian presidential debate in 2018, he demanded that the moderator remove a liberal female candidate because, he said, she was an “idiot” and a prostitute, using a more vulgar term.

Of course at the very end of his miserable life, he was a huge supporter of Putin’s imperialist war on Ukraine.
