Dmitry Nagiev caused hysteria among Russians because of the cryptic New Year greeting: Ukrainians thank the presenter for his support
Russian actor Dmitry Nagiev, who sometimes delicately hints at his disagreement with the Kremlin's policies but still avoids directly condemning the war, outraged Russians with his New Year's greetings. Ukrainians, on the other hand, thanked him.
Comments with warm wishes appeared under the artist's Instagram post. While walking his dog, he filmed a message to his followers.
"Happy new, kind, peaceful, beautiful, just, free, reliable year," Nagiev said, smiling.
Many users from Ukraine interpreted this message as a call for peace, justice and freedom, which many Ukrainians are currently being deprived of by the terrorist Russian Federation.
"Happy New Year, Dmytro. Glory to Ukraine", "Dima, thank you for supporting Ukraine! You are a man with a capital M.", "Yes, with a peaceful, just and free one. And we will live! Happy New Year to you. We are from Ukraine", "I am from Ukraine, but you are the only person from Russia I respect", "Look how interesting it is. He just said Happy New Year, and everyone understood it in their own way," the comments say.
Interestingly, the Russians also "deciphered" Nagiev's congratulations not in their favor. One of the propaganda Telegram channels demanded that the artist immediately clearly define his position on the war in Ukraine.
"Down with the dizziness of success, let's say no to anal contusion. Happy New Year. Wait for orders," the actor fueled Putinists' irritation.
In the comments, he was called a "creature" and a "nivoynist," although Nagiev continues to work with Russian companies. Some even suggested that the wish to "wait for orders" was a sign of mobilization after the elections in Russia.
As a reminder, in early March 2023, the Russian addressed his subscribers in a blue and yellow jacket. The image of the star made Russian propagandists hysterical. In his usual joking manner, the artist also ridiculed Russia's "getting off its knees" and spoke cautiously about the war, and his colleague on the TV series "Kitchen" gave away the star's position.
