Taiwan media reported on March 14th that a video recently circulated on the internet showing that a captain of a Russian airline used an in-flight broadcast to condemn Putin’s invasion of Ukraine as a crime, and won countless praise on the internet.
In this video shared by Ukrainian diplomat, Oleksandr Scherba on Twitter, the captain of a Russian passenger plane bound for Turkey broadcasts his condemnation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to passengers. He said it was a crime and believed that every sensible Russian citizen would agree with him and would do anything to stop the war. At the same time, the captain also emphasized that he hoped that everyone would not hate the Russians. In this regard, the passengers on the same plane gave their applause to express their support.
After the film was exposed, there was a heated discussion immediately over the internet, and many people praised the captain’s courage to speak out and recognized that he was willing to pay the price for freedom. Previously, after the Russian military invaded Ukraine, Putin signed a bill on March 4th to prohibit the media from spreading so-called “false news” of the Russian military. Violators will face up to 15 years in prison. It is widely interpreted by the outside world that this is the Russian government’s deliberate suppression of the surging anti-war remarks in the country.
