The Russian state TV channel Pervig Kanal appeared with a very strange recording. Two well-known Russian scammers, Volodymyr Zelensky, allegedly persuaded JK Rowling over the phone to redraw the injury on Harry Potter’s forehead according to the Ukrainian coat of arms because, given the geopolitical situation, the Z-shape was unfortunate.
The recording was interrupted several times, canceling the original English text. All this reinforces much of the suspicion that the harassment did not in fact occur, or did not occur as the recording suggests.
So far, the news has only appeared on Russian or Russian-language portals in English, unknown sites, but Pervij Kanal (some channels) are off the line. The strange news came here with the introduction of a presenter that has been taken seriously for more than ten years with the Kremlin:
“Did you know that J.K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter, has now taken a very firm anti-Russian stance in this conflict? He even banned his books from being sold digitally on Russian platforms. Come on, our pranksters put up a video: They called this beautiful lady, on behalf of About Zelensky, of course. Take a look!”
In the video, JK Rowling appears to be speaking to the Ukrainian president. The boss is not visible, and it is also not clear how one of the Russian jokers, Lexus and Vovan, appeared in front of the screen.
The conversation begins with the scammers, who, most likely with the help of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), have already contacted several heads of state by phone, including Zelensky’s predecessor, Petro Poroshenko.
We join the conversation on taping when one joker said:
“Harry Potter has a Z-shaped injury to his forehead.”
Scammer: I mean, yes. Can this scratch be removed in light of the geopolitical situation? Is it possible to put the Ukrainian three-pronged sign? With the right hairstyle like the Ukrainians.
Rowling: I might be better off doing it myself on social media. I think it will be in the news right away.
Deceiver: We also want to invite you to read about the Soldiers of Azov from Harry Potter. They also have a book club.
Rowling: Yes, yes.
Deceiver: They like to read, especially German literature. Just read the parts that include what kind of nationalists they are and what they do to others, heh.
Rowling: I see. (Noun)
Deceiver: By the way, I commanded my soldiers to write that Abracadabra…
Rowling: …Open Kedavra…
Deceiver: …at the missiles we launch at Donetsk and Lugansk. How about this joke?
Rowling: I really like this joke. very.
Host: What compels an intelligent, educated and successful person in the art to take such an obvious position in such a situation, along with such an argument? a stranger!”
This is already said by Alexander Gordon, who has been more critical of the Kremlin, Putin’s regime – at a time when there was room for criticism even on state television.
There can be no doubt as to the truth of the recording, which neither he nor the person who appeared in it mentioned.
