He stressed that he did not say that he was blamed, and once again brought his post: “it seems to Me that the state propaganda have invented a twenty-fifth frame, which actually turns people into vicious morons”.
“There is a difference, no? Although judging by the rising wave of shit — does this twenty-fifth frame works,” said Makarevich.

The phrase Makarevich caused a negative reaction among Russian parliamentarians and diplomats. Statement rock musician commented on the state Duma Deputy Vitaly Milonov, an official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
According to Milonov, Makarevichu sometimes it is necessary to leave your usual circle of friends and to talk with ordinary people, to ensure that the Russian people — “a beautiful, kind and warm”.
