– A senseless war

“There are things going on in the world, terrible things that you should know about,” Schwarznegger said.

He says that the Russians are not being told the truth about the consequences of this war for Russia. Soldiers lose their lives, Russian equipment is abandoned and destroyed. The strong economic sanctions that have been imposed on the country.

– This is not war to protect Russia. It is an illegal war. Their lives and their future are threatened for a senseless war, he says, before delivering a clear message to the Russian president.

– You started this war, you are fighting this war, you can stop this war.

Lots of misinformation

Several Russian citizens have recently opened their eyes to what is happening in Ukraine. Thousands of Russians have been arrested during protests and soldiers, who invaded Ukraine, said they believed they had been brainwashed before being sent to Ukraine. Earlier this week, Russian journalist Marina Ovshannikova demonstrated against the war, when she interrupted a state-controlled television news program with a sign calling for an end to the war.

Nevertheless, many are still misinformed by the Kremlin, and have no idea what is happening on the other side of the border.

These are the ones Schwarznegger wants to reach.
