Sergey Filbert came to Germany from Siberia as a 17-year-old. He has set up the YouTube channel "Golos Germanii" in recent years, which translates as "Voice of Germany". This "voice" is very distorted and has more than 500,000 subscribers: he mainly translated conspiracy ideologues, but also politicians from the AfD and leftists with close ties to Russia. Filbert was also allowed to report on his observer mission in Komsomolskaya Pravda.
Individual Observers at the 2022 pseudo-referendum for the formal annexation of occupied territories of Luhansk to Russia
Institutional affiliation to Golos Germanii (Voice of Germany)
Our main goal was to create for ourselves a picture of what is happening here, in order to write a book later. We joined the referendum to be part of a historic moment and to try to convey this to as many European citizens as possible in German and English. We will do interviews, record them in order to make a hole in Western propaganda. What conclusions they draw is the business of each individual citizen, but we are here to show what is happening here. [Translated from Russian]
