Sergey Nikolayevich Abeltsev (Russian: ? ? ; born 6 May 1961 in Lyubertsy, Russian SFSR) is a member of the State Duma of Russia and a former bodyguard of Vladimir Zhirinovsky. He has been a member of the State Duma's Committee on National Security since December 2003 and a member of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia. Prior to his election to the State Duma, Abeltsev was a member of the LDPR Supreme Council. He has degrees in management, law, and military science.
Abeltsev has publicly proposed that Yevgeny Adamov, former Russian atomic energy minister, should be assassinated to prevent him from disclosing state secrets in Switzerland. He approved of the assassination of Aleksander Litvinenko, saying: "The deserved punishment reached the traitor. I am sure his terrible death will be a warning to all the traitors that in Russia treason is not to be forgiven. I would recommend to citizen Berezovsky to avoid any food at the commemorative feast for Litvinenko." In June 2009, Abeltsev, in an interview with the Georgian television channel Rustavi 2, advised the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon to change his family name to a more resonant one -- Condom and to give up politics and run a sex shop at the White House. He later claimed he had been provoked by the Georgian journalists, but refused to withdraw his remarks regarding Gordon.
