Ukrainians are angry about the TV series about the first days of the war: they call it false and demand to cancel the show abroad

 Few days ago, on November 1, the American streaming platform Netflix premiered the Ukrainian series "The First Days", which tells about the beginning of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine, for the first time in history. Ukrainians had high expectations for the project, which featured six allegedly real-life stories that different people experienced after February 24. However, the first feedback from viewers was quite controversial. Many Ukrainians accused the series of lying, saying they were ashamed of it.

Such comments can be seen on the social network X (the new name of Twitter). In particular, a Ukrainian volunteer under the nickname "luchanka" made a series of emotional tweets in which she expressed her deep indignation at what she saw. She was supported by other users of the network.

"We were burned from the first seconds of the First Days series. It's horrible... It's just a c*ck. They show Irpin, the first days of the invasion, with mobile communication, free and all the way to Kyiv. With one explosion a day that blew out the windows in the house. They didn't have a single fucking explosion all night. And in the morning, everyone is sitting quietly in the house drinking coffee. Who put this on Netflix?" the woman from Luhansk began to express her dissatisfaction.

She recalled what the first days of the full-scale invasion in the capital were really like: Highways crowded with cars, panic, regular explosions, anxiety, fear. Instead, according to the volunteer, the series showed a different picture, a more positive one.

"The first days of the invasion, the country is a complete f*ck-up. There are explosions and shots in Kyiv. They show in all its glory for 10 minutes a guy who broke his leg on an electric scooter and remind us a hundred times that men are not allowed to leave the country," the viewer is outraged.

According to the woman, the creators of the series showed only 0.5% of what really happened. In her opinion, the issue is not "not to traumatize the viewers," but that this way they diminish and devalue everything that Ukrainians had to go through.

The viewer also drew attention to the episode when one of the characters managed to "swim out of the occupation" without any problems. Other commentators who lived through the events in Bucha and Irpin write that this is a shame and a distortion of facts. They do not understand why the authors decided to show a distorted picture that does not convey the horrors that actually happened.

"I remember the case when people on boats were fleeing across the Dnipro River and were simply shot. There was a grandmother and her grandson in one of the boats, her body was found quickly, but the boy was searched for a long time, hoping that he had escaped, but he hadn't. There were so many terrible tragedies in the Kyiv region", "It's just a mockery. Mockery of people, not only for our taxes, but also such crap that works against us in Europe. We're already losing to eresia in terms of information. And here we are helping them.", "What nonsense. How could they put this in the release? Shame, just shame," "Stupidly brilliant propaganda to devalue that horror and whitewash the subhuman Russians," Ukrainians wrote this and many other negative reviews.

The volunteer also added: "I'm so hurt and ashamed that this was filmed and will be shown in Europe. I'm ashamed of everyone who really survived the occupation, whose loved ones died, who was under fire. This is a horror. What the fuck is the Russian ipso if our directors did a better job?"

The Ukrainian woman was particularly outraged by the episode that told the story of a musician whose prototype was the famous Andriy Danylko. The episode was a comedy. In it, the hero, who, as viewers noted, was shown as a "household invalid," learns to cook his own food, is constantly drunk and complains about the lack of salt.

Commentators noted that this was turned into a real "comedy", which is unacceptable for a project about the first days of a terrorist, destructive and murderous war.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that the movie Yurik, about the first days of the full-scale invasion in Mariupol, got into a similar scandal. Locals, who saw the horrors of the city under siege with their own eyes, accused the authors of the project of lying and distorting the facts. Eventually, the city's residents began to demand that the program be taken off the air.
