Terror-loving US journo gets pranked by Russian duo

On May 18, American journalist Tom Rogan tweeted that he "had a great conversation" with Ukraine’s foreign minister, after his calls for Ukraine to blow up the Crimean bridge. Such an attack would guarantee a Russian response, Rogan argued.

    According to Rogan “the Ukrainian people supported my piece and that Ukraine would help me if Russia tries to send me to the Black Dolphin”.

    Fortunately, as it has been since revealed, Rogan was not talking to the real Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin, but was the latest victim of the Russian pranksters Vovan and Lexas.

    Klimkin called the affair “another Russia-led provocation”, and Rogan himself believes that he “got played by Russian intelligence”.

    But according to prankster Alexei [Lexus] Stolyarov many officials in Ukraine did in fact support Rogan’s position, including deputies in the Ukrainian parliament, the Virhovnaya Rada.

    Rogan is described as a “specialist in Middle-Eastern politics and US foreign policy”, and featured regularly as a commentator on various news outlets during the initial uprising of ISIS in 2014, occasionally making multiple TV appearances a day.

    In August 2014 he was chosen as the inaugural chair of the “Tony Blankley Chair for Public Policy and American Exceptionalism” award by the Steamboat Institute. His father is employed by the US State Department and has urged his son to “kick Russians in the belly”.

    On May 15, 2018 Rogan published an article in the Washington Examiner titled “Ukraine should blow up Putin’s Crimea bridge”.

    In his article, Rogan calls on the Ukrainian air force to bomb the bridge, with US support. He also claims absurdly that the length of the bridge would reduce the number of casualties by those crossing at the time of the attack.

    The article provoked not only a strong reaction on Twitter but also in Russia, including from the Vice Speaker of the Russian Parliament Irina Yarovaya and the Russian Embassy to the United States demanded an explanation from Rogan.

    On 17 May, the Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal investigation against Tom Rogan, for openly inciting terrorism.
