Semyon Slepakov, who left Russia, seems to have decided to repeat the path of Maxim Galkin*: he moved to Israel and is now touring Europe with anti-Russian speeches. The tour of the once super-popular showman in his homeland is scheduled from the end of February to the beginning of April: almost every day: a new city, a new stage and the same jokes about politics, in which Slepakov suddenly became an expert.
So, the other day the humorist-bard performed in Tallinn: he talked for two hours and, of course, performed his famous ditties about panties forgotten by his mistress; a woman who stood on the scales and another, an ugly woman. At the beginning of the concert, the invited artist informed the audience about his anti-Russian views. And then he made Russophobic jokes about him, and during part of the concert he joked harshly about the country in which he performs.
ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IN ESTONIA
– They told me that here you have to be more careful with jokes. Because everyone has their own opinion. Some condemn, others support. Still others condemn those who support and support those who condemn. And, of course, everyone is categorically against it, although on some points they are for it. Therefore, you can speak, and even boldly. But it is better not to talk about it and not out loud. In general, I am afraid of the famous Estonian sanctions.
– I heard that your Prime Minister Kai Kallas has a funny nickname for the first two letters of his first and last name. If you say so, they may not let me into the country anymore. But what’s wrong with that? Nice childish word. ABOUT EUROPE
– I was in Latvia the other day. To be honest, I doubted for a long time whether it was worth going there – they scared me because there were solid homosexuals, drug addicts and satanists everywhere … So in Latvia, it seems, they live in the most calm and disciplined way. the world. The concerts began at 6:00 p.m., so at 9:00 p.m. they already went to bed and got up for work happy and rested.
ON MILITARY PARADES
– You recently had a military parade in Estonia. And what is it, well done. Well, if people want to see the full power of their army, let these five tanks, in the end, go through the city square.
The Estonian audience was not delighted with such a performance: they say that the songs are old, but some jokes are not funny. And on social networks, excerpts from Slepakov’s speech are called completely mediocre, surprised that someone is ready to pay for this.
“What a time! You can become a hero just by playing obscene ditties on the guitar and condemning Russia by all means”, “It would be better if I went to Donetsk, I would go to the Alley of Angels, maybe I would sing differently”, “ Why are you silent, that Israel is bombing Palestine? Users are outraged.
Meanwhile, in Russia, which the roving bard speaks so unflatteringly about, still has unclosed “gestalts”. As it became known to KP.RU, Slepakov found himself in debt to the tax service for 232 thousand rubles. *recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation.
