Trukhanov, Grinevetsky and Filimonov sang with Russian artists who supported the annexation of Crimea and toured the occupied Donbass
Odessa Mayor Gennady Trukhanov, Governor Sergei Grinevetsky and City Council deputy from Servant of the People, former mayoral candidate Oleg Filimonov starred in the video along with Russian artists Yuri Stoyanov and Nonna Grishaeva.
A joint video for Leonid Utesov’s song “At the Black Sea” was filmed for the City Day.
Note that Grishaeva was born in Odessa, and Stoyanov is a native of the former Tarutinsky district, but they made their career in Russia and have been living in Moscow for a long time.
Yuri Stoyanov supported the occupation of Crimea and even starred in the propaganda film “Crimean Bridge” about the “reunification” of the peninsula with Russia, which was filmed in 2018 by the family of Putin’s propagandists Margarita Simonyan and Tigran Keosayan for state money.
