The Russian athlete, a former well-known mixed martial arts fighter, film actor Oleg Taktarov said that he was sorry for the Russian propagandist Vladimir Solovyov, and suggested that he agreed to such work, since he had to feed his family.
The Russian athlete, a former well-known mixed martial arts fighter (MMM), film actor Oleg Taktarov, on live Instagram, called the Russian propagandist Vladimir Solovyov a “wretched creature.”
The air on Instagram did not survive, but a fragment of it was published on YouTube on April 17.
“[Как отношусь] to Solovyov? I feel sorry for him. This is some kind of wretched creature that found a vile job, “Taktarov said.
He suggested that perhaps Solovyov should feed a large family.
“Perhaps you are right … I try not to get into other people’s loafers. I can’t judge. I feel sorry for him. I have no hatred for him,” – said Taktarov.
Soloviev works on the Russia 1 television channel; he is known for his propaganda statements in defense of Kremlin policy.
Soloviev’s salary on the TV channel, according to the Sobesednik publication, is about 67 million rubles. per month (more than $ 1 million). Commenting on this information, the propagandist said: “Here some fools wrote that I have a salary of 67 million. That is much lower than my real salary. 67 million for ether, per hour!” Soloviev did not specify how much he earned, but in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda in 2019, he called himself a rich man. “I politely earned pretty decent money back in the 90s,” he said.
Recently, a public scandal broke out in the Russian Federation between Solovyov and journalist, football commentator Vasily Utkin. On the Panoptikum program on Dozhd TV Channel, Utkin expressed indignation at the need to remain at home at the expense of the quarantine and continue to pay utility bills. In an interview with Tsargrad, Solovyov called Utkin a “mentally ill person” who “discredits the Russian state.” In response, a football commentator called the propagandist a “pederastic monkey.”
