“I acted lightly and did not think that my act would embarrass and shock you.”
Russian fan Ruslan, who during the air hugged and took the journalist Deutsche Welle for the chest, apologized for his actions. He came to the Russian office of the news agency and contacted the girl via Skype.
According to Ruslan, he was walking around Moscow with his friends and argued that he would kiss the journalist on air. When the employee of DW went on the air, he ran up to her, grabbed her by the chest and kissed her. The fan noted that he did not intend to harass the journalist and did not expect that this would cause such a resonance.The fan Ruslan. Photos of DW
