The actor from the TV series The Word of the Boy publicly supported the occupiers

Last November, the Russian series The Word of the Boy: Blood on the Asphalt, which romanticizes the USSR, robbery, and crime, became popular. The project is openly propagandistic, but fans from Ukraine have found many excuses for it. However, there is at least one nuance that cannot be denied or shielded in any way: the actors of the series support the Russian occupiers and the war in Ukraine. For example, Nikita Kologrivyy, who plays Koshchei, recorded a pathetic thank-you video to the terrorists and murderers, praising them for "protection and security."

It is unknown what exactly the occupiers are protecting Nikita from. His video message to the invaders was probably recorded in the summer or early fall of 2023, but it has gone viral in propaganda channels only now.

Kologrivyy expressed his admiration for the participants of the so-called "special operation". He also did so in a military uniform, as he was on the set of a remake of another propaganda film, In August '44.

"Dear friends, dear brothers, fighters! What I, as an artist, would like to say to us. We are now playing your fates in wartime, trying to do it honestly. And, to be honest, we are grateful that we can safely engage in our work, our profession. And this security is provided by you on the front line. So, what can I say? Thank you very much for taking our places there. Stay healthy! We are waiting for you to come home," the Z-patriot said.

As a reminder, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine reacted to the popularity of the Russian series in the Ukrainian media space for the first time. Viewers were urged to avoid popularizing and watching film products of a hostile country as it finances the war and promotes Kremlin narratives. The official statement reiterated that The Word of the Boy contains Russian propaganda.

Later, representatives of the Ukrainian State Film Agency also commented on the hype around the Russian propaganda series in the Ukrainian information space. They noted that the distribution and demonstration of a Russian film product "is clearly regarded as a violation of the law, which is punishable."

The remarks also concerned media professionals who "consciously or unconsciously play along with the occupiers" by advertising Russian content of the terrorist country. Among them is the well-known blogger Anna Alkhim, who boasted that she was watching a Russian TV series.

The film, by the way, stars the son of the main critic of the Putin regime, musician and frontman of the Time Machine band Andrey Makarevich.
