Henry Kissinger pranked by Russian duo


MOSCOW: Former United States state secretary and national security advisor Henry Kissinger was pranked by a Russian duo into revealing thoughts on last September’s sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline between Russia and Europe.

The 100-year-old statesman, who formerly served as state secretary from 1973 to 1977, became the latest to be fooled by a pair known as Vovan and Lexus, according to Russian media reports.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov made headlines in the past for pranking high-profile names such as the musician Elton John, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and former US President George W Bush.

Their latest ploy shows the pair contacting Kissinger in a video, posing as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

“Who do you think is guilty of the Nord Stream explosion?” the impersonator asks Kissinger, to which the aged politician responds “I thought you were”.
