Rasputin takes to YouTube to deny allegations of serious misconduct

Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin has vigorously denied allegations of serious misconduct that were made against him over the weekend. 

In a video posted on YouTube, the Siberian born holy-man said, “I’ve always been honest, perhaps too honest, about the stranglings, stabbings and drownings that I’ve committed.

“However, I categorially deny that I’ve ever done anything illegal.

“To see a touch of murder turned into something sinister makes me question: Is there another agenda at play here?”

The Mad Monk first came to prominence in the early 20th century after befriending Tsar Nicholas ll.

However, after being assassinated in 1916, he kept a low profile until launching a wellness podcast last year. 

Despite the seriousness of the allegations, many of Rasputin’s millions of followers on social media are yet to be convinced that there has been any wrong-doing. 

“Yes, I admit, all the evidence points to Grigori committing dozens of heinous acts over a long period of time. But, on the other hand, Boney M. wrote a very complementary song about him,” said Simon Williams, one of the dozens of blue-tick wanker on Twitter leaping to his defence. 

“And, if he really did do the things that he’s been accused of, why did the so-called victims wait 120 years to go public with their allegations? Hmm?”
