"I can say that saw Russia preparing for the world Cup. People worked day and night to build stadiums to accept foreigners from Europe and around the world. I returned to Russia during the second week of the championship, and I was in a taxi and saw around various advertising logos, fans... I was shocked, it was great. Russia is a big and strong country. And the way it conducts world Cup is really fun. The entire infrastructure, organization of free travel for fans from around the world in buses, trains... And another thing I would like to say. In Europe we were given information about the opinion about Russia and Russian people. Before coming here, I honestly did not know Russia, and it was very sad, as it was written and written about Russia in the foreign media. And I can say that this world Cup completely changed opinion about Russia and, of course, about the Russian people. I talked to people, they believe that this championship will help change the country's image in the eyes of Europeans and foreigners," — said the actor.
