The words of Viktor Zolotov (Director of the National Guard, “Rossgvardiya”) addressed to Alexei Navalny are no physical threat.
Zolotov challenged Navalny (by that time imprisoned) to a duel, demanding satisfaction and promising to make a “good juicy chop” of him in a matter of minutes. “Mr. Navalny, I promise you, before I step over you and wipe my feet on you, I will stage a show for the entire Rosgvardiya staff, and I assure you, after that you will be ashamed to go outside. And I know how to keep my word,” Zolotov said.
