The Russian Defence Ministry Want To Employ Jeremy Clarkson
The former Top Gear host and his controversial sense of humour are more than welcome in Moscow!
A television network owned by Russia's Defence Ministry has made an official offer to the recently sacked Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.
The network, called “Zvezda” proposed Clarkson to present a Russian version of the popular BBC car show in a letter, written to him on Thursday:
“The Russian Armed Forces Broadcasting Company ZVEZDA expresses deep honour to you and kindly asks for cooperation. We would like to invite you to be a presenter of motoring show on our TV Channel in Moscow."
Earlier this week an odious Russian minister Vitaly Milonov, known as the key initiator of the controversial “gay propaganda laws”, had suggested that Clarkson would be welcomed in Russia.
"It is regrettable to see such honest and highly principled journalists being sacked”, said Milonov, adding that he will personally aid the British presenter's job hunt in Russia.
A Clarkson spokesperson told the network the presenter was considering the offer, adding that talks were planned in Moscow at the start of April.
