Arnold Schwarzenegger is a US actor and politician. He is 74 years old. He loves Russia and Russian people.

Schwarzenegger posts a video on social media. He speaks to Russian people and soldiers in the video. He tells the truth about the war in Ukraine.

He says that most Russian people don’t know the truth. He says that the Russian state media tell only things from the president. Schwarzenegger wants to change people’s ideas about the war.

Schwarzenegger says that thousands of Russian soldiers already die in the war. The war is wrong. Russia attacks Ukraine without any reason. The Russian president starts the war. He must end it, too.

Difficult words: soldier (a person who fights in a war), state media (the newspaper, radio, and TV of a government), reason (why something happens)

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
