On his page on Facebook musician Andrei Makarevich compared people in the US with the Russians. The latter, in his opinion, are more angry and aggressive. Moreover, he believes that under the influence of propaganda, Russian citizens turn into “vicious morons”. Makarevich even offered to “cut” the Ostankino tower, which is one of the symbols of Russian television.
Is the artist statement did not go unnoticed in political circles. So, in an interview with “Fifth channel” the Deputy Vitaly Milonov said that the frontman of “time Machine” is somewhat disingenuous in their assessments of Russian and Americans. According to Milonov, Makarevichu sometimes need to leave their social circle and talk to ordinary people to ensure that the Russian people — “a beautiful, kind and warm”.
“If Makarevich thinks that the residents of Queens in new York are kind and helpful guys, then he is either lying or crazy,” said Milon, adding that Makarevich sees the world through the prism of advanced talent.
At the end of the interview, the MP lamented that before the musician played good music, and now suddenly degraded.
In turn, the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova recalled Makarevich about Sobchak, who previously called the Russians “genetic scum” and failed in the elections. “Anyone who still wants to call the Russians “evil morons” or something like that, remember the experiment of 2018: your candidate, calling people “genetic scum”, gained 1.6 percent. Stop insulting people, you don’t have that right,” said Zakharov.
