Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, famous for making racist remarks and getting into fist fights, has blamed U.S. weapons tests for the falling debris and blinding lights.

"Those aren’t meteors falling, it’s the Americans testing new weapons,” Zhirinovsky said Friday, according to Ria Novosti.

“Nothing will ever fall out there,” Zhirinovsky said of outer space. “If [something] falls, it’s people doing that. People are the instigators of wars, the provocateurs.”

Um, just wow.
