As you know, Sergei often played in war films (“Battle for Sevastopol”, “Life and Fate”, “Alex the Fierce”, “1941. Wings over Berlin”, etc.), so the film by Igor Ugolnikov was on the same topic. The project was called “Call sign “Crane” and was dedicated to the events of the Great Patriotic War.

– Sergei began acting in our film about the everyday life of front-line intelligence in 1943 in one of the main roles, – the producer explained. – He had his first shooting day three days ago, we filmed the first episode with his participation. We agreed that he was supposed to come to us on September 20 to shoot at the studio in his armored car, which he purchased.

Ugolnikov admitted that Puskepalis asked the artists of the painting to help apply camouflage to an armored Ford, which Sergei bought to help the defenders of the DPR. It was on this machine that the artist crashed in the Yaroslavl region.

Why the car was never camouflaged and what will happen to the role of Puskepalis further is not yet reported.
