Ukrainian comedian and musician Andriy Danylko, best-known as pop star drag persona Verka Serdyuchka, mocked Sergey Rogozin, who leads Moscow’s space agency Roskosmos, in an Instagram post on July 14.

Danylko used a still from Rogozin’s recent speech, where he threatened NATO countries with nuclear annihilation. In the photo, a large red star is prominent above Rogozin’s head. Danylko’s Serdyuchka persona often appeared on stage, wearing a hat with an outsized five-point star.

“Impostor!” Danylko wrote in his post.

Fans were quick to brand Rogozin as a “cheap orcish facsimile” of their adored Serdyuchka.

Bellicose Rogozin is notorious for his regular threats to plunge the world into the flames of atomic Armageddon unless Russia is allowed to restore its former imperial status.
