"Why are you killing our children in Donbas?" Pavlo Zibrov told how propaganda ate the brains of his relatives from Russia

Pavlo Zibrov told what his relatives in Russia say about the war

Ukrainian singer Pavlo Zibrov, who has relatives from Russia on his father's side, told how Kremlin propaganda ate their brains and made them believe in "Nazis" and "Banderites." The process of "zombification" began in 2014. Then the perpetrator noticed a "cold snap" in communication with relatives.

In 2022, no one personally called him from Russia. The artist spoke about this in an interview with Dmytro Hordon.

''Why are you killing our children in Donbas?'' Pavlo Zibrov told how propaganda ate the brains of his relatives from Russia

If before the occupation of Crimea and Donbas, Russians kept in touch with Ukrainians, in 2014 they changed their minds about the whole nation. It only took a few false stories for Pavlo Zibrov's relatives in Russia to believe in "Nazis killing children."

"In 2014, it became somehow cool on the other side. A conversation would start, a brotherly, normal conversation, but after 2-3 minutes it would stop: "Why are you shooting, killing our children in Donbas? What are you doing?" It turned into a war, even if it was a limited war, which was in 2014-15. I didn't want to call there," the singer admitted.

Irregular and short-lived conversations with Russian relatives were limited to questions about their health, as they would somehow turn the conversation into accusations of "shelling Donbas" after a few minutes.

"2-3 minutes and there are no emotions to speak. After the war, no one (called - ed.). There was one call from my brother: "If you feel bad there, come, we will take you here in Voronezh. Nazis and Benderites have taken over everything there." We laugh. There is such propaganda there. They live in terror," Pavlo Zibrov said.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that the artist is making efforts to promote Ukrainianization among Ukrainian youth. According to Zibrov, the Russian language annoys him both from the mouths of Ukrainians and from speakers.
