    Popular Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov has recently moved to Canada. For the past six months, he and his large family lived on a different continent. Aleksey Serebryakov is not satisfied with the current situation in Russia. 

    Serebryakov said he was tired of what is happening in Russia, and wanted his children to grow up in a fundamentally different ideology. "In Russia, - says the star of "McMafia" - he can not protect children from rudeness and aggression. It's in the air. Rude won. "

    "I'm tired of what is happening in Russia. We can say, I escaped, could not resist. Life is short, and I can not and do not want to wait any longer, when people grow wiser. I want my children to learn that the world is big, and you can live in a different way. Everyone is talking about the fake Western smiles, but I'd rather like false smile than sincere anger, "- said the actor in an interview.

    Aleksey Serebryakov also fears of what might happen in the country after the presidential elections. About the upcoming vote actor said that it is unlikely that anything will change in Russia, but we should be wary of what might happen the next day after the elections.

One spark, which will lead to an explosion, - he said. - God forbid, to declare any Stenka Razin, in the sense of serious, charismatic leader who will shout "Crash!" And rise huge class of uneducated, unemployed people who want to have everything, but do nothing".

    The last straw was the summer fires and terrible smog in the capital region, which occurred in the summer of 2010. The actor did not like the fact that the authorities made nothing, not even children were evacuated, they were forced to breathe poisonous powders.

    Earlier in the interview with "Novye Izvestiya" Aleksey Serebryakov expressed similar views. Then the actor said: "I'm old enough to realize that the government does not always tell me why it once again takes my money away. Another thing is that it is increasingly leads to thoughts about whether it is necessary to connect the life with this country ... According to recent polls, 75% of the population do not want to live in this country. In my opinion, it's all flying in the air ... Nabokov had never written in this area. By and large all have a great heritage of all mankind, not just a particular area. And banal things happen with that territory. The desire of Tatarstan, for example, to separate from Russia, because, how long can they give to Moscow earned money. Let's see ... But domestic ideology is associated with aggressiveness, rudeness, no doubt, will germinate somewhere ... "
