"Died near Severodonetsk": Netflix "buried" Ukrainian poet and military man Pavlo Vyshebaba
On the popular streaming platform Netflix released a Polish documentary series Matki Wojny ("Mothers of War"). In the finale of the fifth episode of the first season, the authors of the project for some reason "buried" the famous Ukrainian military and poet Pavlo Vyshebaba.
Thus, the series showed photos and videos of the soldier under sad music, told about his art, family and the way in the war, and then announced that Vyshebaba "died near Severodonetsk". Pavlo himself drew attention to this, and wrote about it on his personal Facebook page (to see the video, scroll to the end of the page).
"Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated, as Mark Twain wrote. Netflix had no sooner said hello to me than they said goodbye. The documentary series "Mothers of War" that came out on their platform was not really a documentary. It ends with a story about me with a lot of photos and videos, reading lines from my poems. Suddenly dramatic music sounds, the video from color becomes black and white and the narrator says that Vyshebaba died near Severodonetsk," the AFU fighter wrote in his social networks.
Many fans of the warrior-poet watched the series - the emotional and unexpected climax startled them. They immediately started writing messages to Vysebaba. The defender reassured subscribers that he is alive and well, but began to understand why he was suddenly "buried" on Netflix.
It turned out that Matki Wojny was released back in August 2022 on Polish TVP. Wyszebaba emphasized that the authors of the series did not coordinate anything with him.
"I can understand - they thought I was already dead. Why - I don't know. The ending of the series was indeed dramatic, but there is a nuance. I'm still serving - invariably in the 68 Brigade - and I'd like to avoid scaring my friends and readers, at least in vain. So if you have time, inspiration and outlets for the creators of the series Matki Wojny or Netflix - please write them about this mistake," - addressed to the follower Paul.
Recall, Vyshebaba became famous online thanks to his poetry, which he often recites from the front. One of the most popular poems of the fighter - "Just don't write to me about the war", which he dedicated to his daughter. Together with singer KOLA, he even recorded a song with the lyrics of this work.
