Los Angeles (AP) – Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger called on the Russian population to defend themselves against the propaganda of their state.
“I am speaking to you today because there are things in the world that are denying you, terrible things that you should know,” the 74-year-old woman said in the video posted on Twitter and Telegram.
He himself has developed a deep connection to Russia throughout his career. Due to the brutality of his actions, Russia is now isolated from the rest of the world. The government lied to the population and the soldiers about the real reasons for the war in Ukraine. “The Kremlin authorities started this war. This is not the war of the Russian people,” Schwarzenegger said.
“I know that the Russian people are not aware that such things are happening. That is why I call on the Russian people and the Russian soldiers in Ukraine to see through the propaganda and disinformation that is being spread,” he said. Schwarzenegger “I ask you to help me spread the truth. Tell your fellow Russians about the unfolding humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine.”
He called the people who demonstrated against the war in Russia his “new heroes.” Schwarzenegger also addressed Russian President Vladimir Putin directly: “You started this war. You are fighting this war. You can stop this war.”
