Indeed so. This is from some years ago but neatly sums up his attitude. Ignorant hardly describes it.
"What you have is a nation (Russia) whose foreign policy has been nothing but expansion at somebody else's expense since Ivan the Great. Plus, they're not Europeans, despite noisy disclaimers to the contrary; they're Asians and must be dealt with that way. Once that is understood, it makes the problem a lot easier. Unfortunately, the bear isn't dead, only asleep and we're bound to have trouble again."
There is no place for this kind of bigotry in the 21st Century.
