Shame of the day: Russian propaganda in support of war against Ukraine was launched at UFC 294
The management of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) demonstrated support for Russian aggressors during the UFC 294 tournament held in Abu Dhabi, Emirates. The organizers of the show allowed fighter Victoria Dudakova to come out for her fight to the song of Yaroslav Dronov, the main propagandist of Russian show business, known as Shaman.
In July last year, the accomplice of Vladimir Putin's criminal regime, who was called the "voice of war" against Ukraine, released the song "I am Russian," to which Dudakova came out. There were no obstacles from UFC administrators. The 24-year-old athlete from Volgograd herself called her decision a manifestation of patriotism in a commentary to the propaganda TV channel Match TV.
"A lot of Russian speakers came here. During the last preparations, I was constantly listening to the song "I am Russian", I think it motivated me. I wanted to create a small holiday for the Russian-speaking audience. Despite the current situation in the world, Russians miss patriotism," said the Russian.
Earlier, the UFC lifted the ban on the use of the national flag by fighters from the aggressor country. "If any flags hurt your feelings, that's your problem," said UFC President Dana White.
Dronov also made a name for himself with the video "We," in which he sang about the greatness of Russia. The video caused outrage even among Russians, who saw it as a reference to Nazi Germany.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, UFC fighter Khamzat Chimayev (12-0) spoke in favor of peace, mentioning Ukraine, and then asked Chechen head Ramzan Kadyrov to go to Palestine to kill Israelis.
