Alexei "Solo" Berezin just appeared on national Russian TV, featuring in ‘Evening Urgant’. ‘Evening Urgant’ is hosted by Ivan Urgant and is the most popular late-night talk show on Russian television.

On the episode broadcasted yesterday, Ivan Urgant played Dota 2 together with’s Captain Solo for the first time. Urgant played two games. The first was a bot match with Pudge, following which he played with real players who even recognized him in the voice chat. 

Although a version with English subtitles it yet to be released, the Russian version remains entertaining and engaging enough for non-Russian speakers to watch the segment.

Watching Dota 2 players being featured on mainstream Russian television is quite heartening and inspiring. Earlier last year, Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev became a brand ambassador for Head and Shoulders and filmed multiple advertisements with the shampoo brand. These ads aired on national Russian television earlier this year.
