Galkin, Slepakov, Zemfira, and Others: Russian Stars Massively Disputing Their Status as "Foreign Agents

Russian artists who openly and cautiously criticized Putin's regime, for which they received the status of "foreign agents," decided to fight for their rights. The stars, forced to sign all their posts with lines stating that the information was disseminated by a "foreign agent," have begun massively challenging the Russian Ministry of Justice's "verdict.

Decisions on their lawsuits have not yet been made, because the stigma of being a "foreign agent" has only recently begun to bother the celebrities. The propagandists wrote about the Russians' intentions (to see a photo, scroll to the end of the page).

Not long ago, singer Zemfira, who supports Ukraine and condemns the Russian war, decided to challenge her status. The star left the country and stopped earning money for concerts in Russia.

Subsequently, it became known that Russian parodist Maxim Galkin no longer wanted to be a "foreign agent," either. The comedian also left Russia with his family and gave part of his earnings abroad to Ukrainians.


On the eve of the Russian media announced that the blogger Ilya Varlamov and the singer Semyon Slepakov consequently decided to appeal against the status assigned by the Ministry of Justice and filed applications in court.

It is also worth mentioning that their fellow "foreign agents" also tried in vain to obtain justice in Russia. In particular, interviewer Yuri Dud, musician Andrei Makarevich, host Mikhail Shats, and others.


As OBOZREVATEL wrote, one of Russia's main propagandists, Vladimir Solovyov, on live TV profanely berated Russian comedian Semyon Slepakov, who recorded a sarcastic lullaby about the occupant who died in the war in Ukraine.
