It's all lies”: Heckler disrupted Putin's Mariupol visit

Report from March 20:

Moscow/Mariupol - You have to listen very carefully to the video that the Kremlin released after Vladimir Putin's visit to the Russian-occupied city of Mariupol.

However, it is evident that something unusual is happening in the scene.

You can see the Kremlin ruler in a blue down jacket facing a small group of people surrounded by cars and blocks of houses.

If the security forces, who can be seen in the background, didn't suddenly react frantically to a few shouted scraps of words somewhere in the distance - one could almost think that the scene was interrupted by nothing but a harmless neighborhood dispute.

In fact, however, a heckler in Mariupol managed the rare feat of getting into an official Kremlin recording with open criticism of Putin and his war against Ukraine.

Russian authorities put them on the Internet after Putin's show in the occupied city on the Azov Sea.

This is reported by several media, including the internet newspaper


, which is critical of the regime and immediately copied the video to its Telegram channel.

Heckling during Putin's visit to Mariupol: All "lies", all "show"

For people who do not speak Russian, you can read in the text what the woman calls out: "That's all lies, that's for the show".

She could have struck a chord with the Russian President.

He had wanted to visit the port city in a media-effective way to demonstrate that the people in the city are better off after the liberation by Russia than under Ukrainian leadership.

According to a dpa report, the video was supposed to show a "spontaneous" meeting between Putin and the residents of the Nevsky residential area, which was rebuilt after the destruction.

The citizens gathered in front of Putin thanked the Kremlin boss for the reconstruction.

The Ukrainian port of Mariupol was besieged and shelled for months after the start of the Russian war of aggression.

Russian sources have repeatedly said that "Nazis" from Ukraine were responsible for much of the destruction.

The fact is, according to the effects of satellite images and observers of the situation: In the course of the fighting, the city, in which 440,000 people lived before the start of the Ukraine war, was 90 percent destroyed.
