Actor Mikhail Yefremov in an interview with Ukrainian radio «New Time» told about the distinction of Russia from the Soviet Union.

Remembering the USSR, the actor said that the Communist Wraith ended. He also said in response to the remark of the leader that this Wraith supposedly lasts.

«No, it’s another Wraith. Imperial. The phantom pain,» — said Efremov.

The era of perestroika, the actor has called a period of phenomenal experience. He also noted that, despite the fact that he lived in the USSR for a long time, hoping that it the «little Soviet.»

In response to the question of how Efremov «etched itself from the Soviet,» he was advised to laugh and have called the smile of the first defensive reaction.

The actor also added that in Ukraine nothing has changed after 2014.

«Yes, it’s difficult, you develop and develop. You still have to fight corruption, but it’s impossible. Because corruption is your own mother», he said with a laugh.

In addition, Yefremov said that in Russia alone, of all the 15 former Soviet republics do not celebrate the Day of freedom and independence, and perceive the collapse of the Soviet Union negatively.

Russia day, celebrated annually on June 12 since 1992, dedicated to the day of adoption of Declaration on state sovereignty.
