In the video, created a non-profit organization “the Committee in support of investigations of Russia,” Freeman immediately declares that the United States was attacked and they “wage war”. After that, he tells the story of who came to power the KGB agent who dreams of revenge for the collapse of the Soviet Union. Further the actor States that this is not a screenplay, and agent name is Vladimir Putin.

Freeman urges trump to address the nation with a story about Russian interference in the elections and internal politics of the States and to answer the abandoned Russian challenge.

Commenting on these words, Govorukhin said the radio station “Moscow speaking” that “not all actors are idiots, but among them there are, it happens. I think it’s autumn aggravation”.

The Director urged not to treat the words of Freeman seriously, attributing them to his age (Freeman was born in 1937, and then died one year earlier, in 1936).

“And God forbid answer the idiot. It means to stoop to his level. Pushkin is still advised: do not argue with a fool,” he finished his thought Govorukhin (Pushkin uses the word “osporava”).

Note that the performance of the Freeman move was not welcomed in the ranks of the Russian opposition. So, the Manager of the human rights branch of the “Open Russia” Paulina Nemirovsky published in the telegram a call “not to give a speech in the spirit of Kiselev and work on the civilian levers”. Her rejection was caused, in particular, the phrase Freeman on what the whole world needs leadership the United States and has 241 years sees them as a model of democracy. Here Nemirovsky reminded that slavery in the US was abolished only 152 years ago, which “could remember a black Freeman”.
