“Let’s write the Soviet Union, because there is no such country, nothing to complain about, it would be symbolic,” – said the representative of the famous circus dynasty in a video that recently posted on Instagram.

Zapashny reminded that Russia is the legal successor of the USSR. “The most important thing more than modern Russia, in our civilization only feared the Soviet Union, – said the people’s artist of the Russian Federation. – And let them tremble then!”

“Let our boys and girls will leave with a proud inscription of the USSR and break it all,” he finished the thought the trainer who knows a lot about taming.

The video attracted more than 5 thousand “likes”. Subscribers zapashnogo in most approved of the idea. However, there is another point of view. Some believe the proposal is inappropriate, as many countries of ex-Soviet Russia, “just hate.” “Why so many want us to fear? Including Zapashny. What’s the pride?” – puzzled others. “For The Motherland! For Stalin!)))” – “Troll” of the author’s ideas.
