Smolyaninov was once one of Putin’s favorite heroes.
New Delhi. Russian actor Artur Smolyaninov has struck a blow to Russia. He was once one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s favorite movie stars, but Russia has now declared the movie star a foreign agent. Artur Smolyaninov is also the subject of a criminal investigation. In the meantime, he issued a statement against Russia. Obviously, after this statement, Putin will get more angry. According to a CNN report, actor Artur Smolyaninov has already been identified as Rambo from Russia. Smolyaninov was the protagonist of the 2005 Russian feature film Devyataya Rota (9th Company). He played the role of the last soldier standing during a battle in Afghanistan, which was occupied by Soviet forces for a decade.
But a lot has changed since then. The actor was expelled. And in a recent interview, he said he was ready to fight on behalf of Ukraine and kill Russian soldiers. He told Novaya Gazeta last week that he felt nothing but hatred for the people on the Russian side and that he would show them no mercy if he were on this land. He even said that if he had to go to this war, he would only fight for Ukraine.

He added that one of his former colleagues had left to fight on the Russian side. “Should I shoot him? Sure! Do I keep my options open to fight alongside Ukraine? Absolutely! This is the only way for me and if I have to go to this war, I will only fight for Ukraine.
Let us tell you that Smolyaninov has spoken a lot about Russia’s attack on Ukraine and he constantly criticizes Russia. Recently, the head of the Russian Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, ordered that a criminal case be filed against Smolyaninov. Smolyaninov recently recorded a Soviet-era song Temnaya noch (Dark Night) with rewritten lyrics.
