Veteran actor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently pleaded with Russian soldiers and the public on March 17 to hear the “facts” about Russia’s conflict in Ukraine, calling it a “humanitarian crisis” that has killed “thousands of Russian soldiers.” The renowned actor and former governor of California shared his appeal not only on Twitter but also on Telegram, a messaging app founded in Russia. For days, Russian state media sought to ignore Schwarzenegger’s strong message, however, the millions of views his plea garnered on numerous platforms made them acknowledge it.
The actor’s video has now been criticized by Russian media, however, it’s not just state media pundits who were offended by Arnold’s post. Maryana Naumova, a Russian weightlifter, recently accused the American actor of “living in an alternate and imaginary reality”. “The fact that Mr. Zelensky, as you say, is Jewish, did not help them. Nazism has no nationality, Nazism is not based on the word “German”. And Russophobia is not worth no better than anti-Semitism,” she claimed without facts, accusing the Ukrainian government of Nazism.
Referring to well-known Schwarzenegger feature films, she said: “Do you remember how in Terminator Part 2 your hero travels back in time to prevent the creation of Skynet, which would lead to the death of all mankind? Russia’s special military operation is not aimed at destroying the Ukrainian people, but the neo-Nazi Skynet which over the years has completely subjugated Ukraine and was about to turn into an uncontrollable monster, dangerous for all its neighbours, not just for us. . Don’t side with Skynet, Terminator.”
Notably, Maryana Naumova’s response to the American actor is now shared by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Facebook. Looked:
