New Delhi. Russian actor Artur Smolyaninov has given a big blow to Russia. He once used to be one of the favorite film stars of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but now Russia has declared this film star as a foreign agent. Also Artur Smolyaninov is facing a criminal investigation. Meanwhile, he has issued a statement against Russia. Obviously, after this statement, Putin will get more angry. According to a CNN report, actor Artur Smolyaninov was once identified as Rambo of Russia. Smolyaninov was the protagonist in the 2005 Russian feature film ‘Devyatya 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 has been deported. And in a recent interview, he said that he is 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 would show them no mercy if he were on that land. He even said that if he had to go to this war, he would fight only for Ukraine.
