Vladimir Zhirinovsky became enraged when Russian Today journalist Stella Dubovitakaya asked him about sanctions against the Ukraine. After ranting that Ukranians were 'nymphomaniacs,' he also accused Stella of being a sex addict, to which she replied that she was pregnant.

'This is no place for you if you're pregnant,' he said, 'We need healthy people. Pregnant women should not go to work. Sit at home and look after your child, got that?'

The politician then ordered his aides to 'rape the woman hard.'

Several journalists blocked their path to the expectant mother, saying: 'she is pregnant, why are you attacking her?'

But when another journalist attempts to step between the aides and Stella, Zhirinovsky attacked them too, saying: 'Stop interfering here, you lesbian.'

The nationalist politician has since apologised to 'her and everyone, if I happened to offend someone.'

'We need healthy people. Pregnant women should not go to work. Sit at home and look after your child, got that?'

He is infamous for his rages against the press and other politicians, and claims he 'spoke a bit rudely when I replied to a young woman.'
