Arnold Schwarzenegger’s videotape appeal to the Russian people has been remarkably effective. The celebrated film star and former California governor posted it not only on Twitter, but also on Telegram, which is used nearly simply by Russians. For days, Russian state media tried to ignore it altogether — but millions of views across multiple platforms forced them to address Schwarzenegger’s important communication.
“ That face is the cover runner of American imperialism and colonialism,” Television host Vadim Gigin declared on state Television show Sunday Evening With Vladimir Solovievon, raging about Arnold Schwarzenegger and his videotape clip. “ Not the mock image of Uncle Sam, but this Schwarz, in a Hollywood product.”

Gigin sounded particularly irritated with the first commentary Arnold made in his videotape. In an trouble to dodge state media’s propensity to incontinently dismiss any review as “ Russophobia,” Arnold had opened his address with monuments of his fondness for the Russian people, with times of positive relations long before Vladimir Putin started a full-fledged war against Ukraine.
“ He, in California, will tell us, who live then … the verity?! That’s their approach towards us,” Gigin fumed.
Visibly furious, Gigin reported the alternate half of Schwarzenegger’s videotape, where he mentioned the mug blessed to him by champion weightlifter Yury Vlasov, which Arnold continues to use to this veritably day. Gigin editorialized that Schwarzenegger noway understood Vlasov, who opposed the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
“ Vlasov could n’t transfer any of his brain (to Schwarzenegger) with his handshake and the blessed mug,” he blasted. Host Vladimir Soloviev also chimed in by pointing out “ Schwarzenegger doubly traveled to Iraq to support the American colors and noway tried to tell the Iraqi people why they ’re being destroyed.”
It’s not only state media pundits who are outraged with Arnold’s videotape.
Russian powerlifter champion Maryana Naumova, who has expressed her admiration for the likes of notorious Syrian oppressor Bashar al Assad, counted in with her response to the communication, which was published by the Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda on Monday. In her commentary, Naumova indicted the American film star of “ living in an volition, imaginary reality.” Baselessly criminating the Ukrainian government of Nazism, she claimed “ The fact thatMr. Zelensky, as you say, is a Jew, didn’t help them. Nazism has no nation, Nazism isn’t grounded on the word‘German.’And Russophobia is no better thananti-Semitism.”
Pertaining to Schwarzenegger’s celebrated point flicks, Naumova placarded “ Do you remember how in the alternate part of the Terminator your idol goes back in time to help the creation of Skynet, which would bring the death of all humanity? Russia’s special military operation doesn’t aim to destroy the Ukrainian people. It’s aimed at theneo-Nazi Skynet, which over the times has fully pacified Ukraine and was about to turn into an willful monster, dangerous for all of its neighbors, not only for us. Do n’t side with Skynet, Terminator.”
Zakhar Prilepin, a notorious Russian pen who boasted of “ killing numerous” in the last war in Donbas, and who’s wanted by Ukraine’s SBU security service on charges of “ taking part in the exertion of a terrorist association,” also had harsh words for Arnold. Prilepin wrote on his Telegram channel “ In his videotape communication, Schwarzenegger, who killed three million Russians in his flicks, told the Russian people how important he loves us and how wrong we’re about Ukraine. This Austrian, the son of his father, who served in the SS and was wounded near Leningrad, is trying to act as the good bobby.”

.Prilepin complained that the United States is “ pumping Ukraine full of defenses to massacre the Russians,” failing to mention that Russia is the raider in this war. He added “ Arnie, you’re a bloodsucker and an adversary.”
As a guest on Soloviev’s Sunday show, Prilepin stressed that the Russians should n’t try to move the West of their humanity and good will. He argued that Russia’s approach towards the West should be as harsh as possible “ If they ’re seriously hysterical of the conflict with Russia, of WWIII, of nuclear war or the escalation of the conflict, we should be persuading them that we ’re ready for it, that we love it, that we like to make war.
