She traveled to the annexed Crimea and wore a pilot's cap: scandalous details about the Siskadov actress Iryna Gatun have surfaced
Kyiv-born comedian Iryna Gatun, who played the role of the "girl from Skadovsk" in the scandalous episode of Kvartal 95, traveled to occupied Crimea in 2019 and wore a Soviet uniform in 2015. She keeps evidence of this on her Facebook page among many hundreds of other photos.
The photos were noticed by journalist Maryna Danyliuk-Yarmolaeva. According to the author of the Bez Censored channel, Gatun blocked her after the facts from her biography were published.
"Iryna Gatun, the star of Kvartal 95, loves May 9 and pilots. And in 2018-2019, she had a good time in the occupied Crimea: in Feodosia, Koktebel and Yalta. Can a convinced lover of staples and Pushkin culture make jokes about women who have suffered from the occupation? Obviously not," the journalist wrote.
If you scroll through the photos on the comedian's page for a very long time, you can find evidence of the journalist's words. For example, photos against the backdrop of Crimean landscapes or shots of "Scarlet Sails" in the Alexander Green Museum, which is located on the now-occupied peninsula.
If you go very far down and scroll through photos from other cities in Ukraine, and again from Crimea, where Gatun, according to Danylyuk-Yarmolaeva, was in 2018 and 2015, you can see a mallet in a Soviet uniform with a pilot's cap and a distinctive star on it.
By the way, Iryna Gatun is a connoisseur of Russian culture. For example, on her page, you can find a photo of a monument to Russian writer Anton Chekhov, and the Black Square Theater's website contains information about her favorite cultural figures.
The actress's favorites among her colleagues are Russians Oleg Yankovsky and Faina Ranevskaya, and her favorite movie is The Same Munich produced by Mosfilm.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that the scandal around the actress erupted because of a performance where she embodied a "girl from Skadovsk" who speaks poor Ukrainian and does not understand simple words. Another participant in the skit, Yuri Veliky, has already responded to the outrage of Ukrainians.
