"The Word of the Boy" features a murderer who had been hiding from the investigation for 12 years: witnesses recognized him on screen
Russian actor Sergey Bazanov, who starred in several episodes of the sensational "The Word of the Boy. Blood on the Asphalt", was detained on suspicion of murder. 12 years ago, businessman Alexander Dzabiyev was attacked in Bolshoy Pivyaroslavsky Lane, Moscow, with the intention of robbing him, but for 12 years the investigation could not catch the perpetrators.
However, one of the viewers of the series, who was also a witness in Dzabiyev's case, recognized the attacker after seeing him on the screen. After verification and surveillance, the Russian who played the role of Demid was detained.
A representative of the Zamoskvoretsky District Court told propagandists: "He is not a very famous actor, he played in the TV series 'The Word of the Boy. Blood on the Asphalt" in episodic scenes. The court chose a preventive measure in the form of detention for two months, until February 20, 2024."
It is reported that in 2011, three unidentified men attacked a businessman who was carrying 900 thousand dollars. Dzabiyev was shot in the head and robbed.
For 12 years, the case had been unsolved, and it was planned to be forgotten due to the lack of new evidence, but the viewers of "The Word of the Boy" turned to the police with testimony.
One of the witnesses stated that he had seen the perpetrator in the series, and other eyewitnesses to the events of that day confirmed his words. Bazanov was put under surveillance, evidence of his involvement in the attack was studied, and eventually the actor was arrested.
According to the Russian media, a man believed to be Bazanov's accomplice was also detained. They pleaded not guilty to the murder charges.

The Ministry of Culture has already asked bloggers not to spread or support the popularity of the series, as they are playing along with the enemy. Ukrainian director and screenwriter Marysia Nikitiuk also sounded the alarm, because there is also a war for identity going on, which Ukrainians are "partially losing."
