The artists received state awards for the Independence Day of Ukraine this year.
The star of the studio “Kvartal 95” Yevgeny Koshevoy answered, for which Vladimir Zelensky presented them with state awards for the Independence Day of Ukraine 2022.
Since this event has generated a lot of rumors and hate, the celebrity decided to clarify. According to Eugene, the award is the result of his volunteer work, which the comedian does not want to advertise.
“The fact that we do not speak publicly about this volunteer activity is our business. Until now, we have done everything at our own expense, we have not collected donations from other people, so we did not even think that we should report to someone. Someone else advertises his volunteer activities – this is his business. Others also received orders for this, “Koshevoy said in an interview. kp.
Yevhen also noted that after a full-scale invasion, they were repeatedly accused of going abroad, but they remained and remain in Ukraine – they continue to volunteer and ignore the hate.
“For example, someone spread rumors that Pikalov and I fled to Poland on the first day of the war … And this despite the fact that on the 24th morning Sasha and I came to the 1 + 1 TV channel, went live from the studio to support people,” said a friend of Volodymyr Zelensky.
“From the second week of the war, they began to travel with performances. They performed in military units, bomb shelters, hospitals, at metro stations. If you read everything that they write, it may seem that Sasha and I have already traveled half the world in these half a year. I try to do this do not respond. But sometimes, of course, anger takes. Although you understand that some people are simply paid money for this – for them to slander people, “added Koshevoy.
On August 28, 2022, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree awarding some celebrities with honorary orders. This list includes Evgeny Koshevoy and Alexander Pikalov – actors of the Kvartal 95 studio. After that, a hate war fell upon them for allegedly undeserved receipt of state awards.
Recall that Koshevoy and his wife made patriotic tattoos.
