Russian prankers Vovan and Lexus called American candidate for the position of US president from the Democratic Party Bernie Sanders on behalf of Greta Thunberg and her father.


In a telephone conversation, the politician complained about the policy of the current head of the state Donald Trump and asked the activist to help change Russia's energy policy.

At the same time, Bernie Sanders noted that the activist is doing an incredible job, which gives him «at least some hope,» but he needs to say just «one unfortunate thing.»

We have the US president who not only does not recognize the problem of climate change, but he generally encourages the extraction of fossil fuels, which is a horrible thing, said the American politician.

Answering the question of Greta's «father» Svante about how to respond to the «Russian invitation,» the candidate from the democratic party replied that Russia could use the activist.

I think, before you go there, you should study everything and make a statement: you are going to Russia! emphasized Bernie Sanders.

The politician said that Russia is one of the most important global economies, noting that Moscow needs to reconsider climate policy.

At the same time, Bernie Sanders criticized the Russian authorities for an ineffective policy as the country «earns a lot of money» from the oil sale.

Earlier, NEWS.ru reported that more than half of Russians never heard of Greta Thunberg.
