Andrey Makarevych spoke about Russian propagandists and their way of presenting material: this is how their electorate speaks
The famous Russian musician, leader, and the only permanent member of the rock band Mashina Vremeni (Time Machine), Andrey Makarevich, who has been actively opposing the Putin regime since 2014, often falls out of favor with Kremlin propagandists because of his position. It doesn't bother the artist at all, but he continues to be surprised by the way pseudo-journalists present information to their viewers or readers.
The performer emphasized that he was struck by the "level of square, marketplace rudeness" in the information space of the aggressor country. He shared his opinion on his personal Facebook page.
"As an artist, I primarily pay attention to the form, not the content. The level of marketplace rudeness that has overwhelmed all levels of information - from state channels to the latest yellow leaflet - is striking. It's not even a thug language - real thugs don't talk like that. It's the language of backstreets hoodlums," Makarevych commented.
And if Putin's minions are allowed to use such a manner of presenting material, the musician suggested that the "top" fully approves or even encourages it.
"Judging by everything, the top approves of this, so there are two options: 1) This is their language of communication. 2) They believe that this is how their electorate speaks. Both are fine," the artist added.
Internet users expressed their opinion on this in the comments.
"This is the language of mimicry. Everyone understands that they have to pass on their own by speaking this prisoner's surzhyk [mixed language - Ed.]. Otherwise, they will be scrutinized and will give up." "With the abolition of the Soviet Union, the dams of restrictions began to collapse... And the blatnaya fenya [Russian cant language used among criminals - Ed.] started to flow into the native language. At first, some people thought it was "cool". Since then, the native language has continued to faithfully reflect what is happening to its speakers." "It would be funny if it wasn't so sad," fans left under the post.
Earlier, Makarevich recorded a song where he told the truth about modern Russia and its citizens. Although the oppositionist did not mention the name of his homeland in the lyrics, it was not difficult to guess that it was about the aggressor country.
OBOZREVATEL also reported that Makarevych reacted to the "results" of the pseudo-referendums in the occupied Ukrainian territories. He asked one pointed question that calls into question all the Kremlin's propaganda.
