90 Day Fiancé: Sasha Larin Criticized For Supporting Russia During War

Fans of 90 Day Fiancé were shocked when Sasha Larin voiced support for his homeland Russia during the current Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the season 7 star should expect a lot of criticism regarding his controversial views. Sasha is one of the only cast members who agree with Russia’s extreme aggression towards Ukraine, and he could get called out by Ukrainian franchise stars as well.

Viewers were introduced to Sasha in 90 Day Fiancé season 7, as he prepared to move from Russia to the United States with his pregnant fiancé, Emily. The couple met while Sasha was still married to his second wife, which has raised a few eyebrows, but he divorced her to pursue a relationship with Emily. Fans were skeptical of their relationship and didn’t care for Sasha’s comments to Emily about losing her baby weight, but the couple has managed to stay together. Though Sasha and Emily had planned on bringing Sasha’s parents to the U.S., the pandemic got in the way and, instead, the couple moved back to Russia with their son, David, last year.

Now that Sasha is back home in Russia, it seems he’s doubled down on his love for his homeland because he is blindly in support of Russia’s war with Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin recently ordered an invasion of Ukraine, and missiles have been raining down on the country. Most of the world have been watching in shock and horror, but Sasha is firmly on Russia’s side. “You have to be a complete idiot if you think that Russia invaded Ukraine without any [justified] reason,” he said in an Instagram Story, adding “I’m sorry but I can’t read more about how my country is being mixed with dirt.” The 90 Day Fiancé star didn’t mince words as he backed his homeland, and he’s facing a lot of criticism because of it.

It didn’t take long for fans to start in on Sasha and condemn his support of the aggressor in the war. A lot of commenters questioned Sasha’s overall intelligence, with one Reddit commenter stating, “Well he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Nothing's changed apparently.” There were others who said Sasha was “brainwashed” and called for TLC to cut all ties with him. Some noted that Sasha “grew up believing the propaganda,” so he accepts the lies sold to him by Putin. However, to a lot of fans, Sasha’s comments felt like blind patriotism and pointed out that while Sasha said there’s a justified reason for the invasion, he doesn’t say what that reason might be.

The franchise also has several Ukrainian cast members who have loved ones still in the country, including Yara Zaya and Natalie Mordovtseva, and they would likely take offense at Sasha’s support for the war. Fortunately, Sasha seems to be one of the only cast members in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise who supports Russia. Many franchise stars have taken to social media in recent days to share messages of support for Ukraine.

Even other Russian cast members have spoken out about being disgusted by Russia’s actions and expressed sympathy for the Ukrainian people. Sasha can expect a flood of criticism and harsh messages from 90 Day Fiancé fans who are against the war and believe in Ukraine’s right to independence. Even Sasha’s fellow Russian cast members are in agreement that Putin has gone too far and that his aggression towards Ukraine is unconscionable, so fans are unlikely to cut Sasha any slack.
