This 14-Year-Old Caller Perfectly Sums Up Our Issues With Russia

Tuesday 22nd July 2014

LBC has talked a lot about the Malaysian Airlines crash in the last week, but few callers had such an enlightened view on it as this intelligent 14-year-old.


After a previous caller had suggested that all Russians in the UK should suffer sanctions in the aftermath of the MH17 tragedy, Vasily in Norwood called James O'Brien to argue.

Despite being just 14, Vasily produced an impressively succinct summary of the situation in Ukraine and the difficulty that European countries have in punishing Russia and Vladimir Putin.

In the words of James O'Brien: "14-years-old and spoken more sense than I have in 45 minutes."
