São Paulo state deputy Arthur do Val (Podemos), known as “Mamãe, Falei”, confirmed this Saturday morning (5) that he owns the audios in which he says that Ukrainian women are “easy, because they are poor”. The deputy acknowledged that the audio was sexist. The politician’s statements were made in the lobby of Guarulhos International Airport.
The parliamentarian was in Ukraine following the Russian attacks and reportedly sent messages to colleagues from the Free Brazil Movement (MBL) with sexist and sexist comments.

The deputy, who is a pre-candidate for the government of São Paulo for Podemos, said that “there was a misunderstanding” and “people are mixing the audios with another context”.
“For God’s sake, people, the impression that’s going on here is that I got there [na Ucrânia] and I said: ‘who wants to come with me here, I want to buy something’. That’s not it and I couldn’t even do it. Even in the audios I speak there, albeit in a jocular way, in an informal way. I didn’t have time to do anything at all, I didn’t have time to shower,” said the parliamentarian upon landing.
“If people want to judge me, they have the right. I just want you to understand that they are different contexts. One thing is that Arthur went there to do the mission. Another thing is Arthur who had already left (from Ukraine, after the trip) and sent an audio in a private group, to his friends, in a wrong, inappropriate way, it wasn’t in the best of postures, that’s clear. But like I told you, it’s private audio,” he said.
The deputy also said that “what I said was wrong, that’s not what I think. What I said was a mistake, in a moment of excitement.”
After the repercussion of the audios on social networks, the parliamentarian’s girlfriend announced the breakup of the relationship. The announcement was also made on social media and while Arthur do Val was still on a flight from Ukraine to Brazil.
“Out of respect for all my followers who also followed Arthur, I would like to make it clear that we will go our separate ways. Unfortunately, life is unpredictable and often takes us down paths we don’t understand. But of one thing we can be sure: the love was real and always will be”, wrote the ex-girlfriend.
Podemos, the congressman’s party, also repudiated the deputy’s comments. “Very serious and unacceptable are the statements of state deputy Arthur do Val, which were published in the press. They are not limited to complete disrespect for women, whether Ukrainian or from any other country, but profound violations related to humanitarian issues, at a time when these people face the horrors of war. Podemos vehemently rejects the statements and, based on them, immediately institutes an internal disciplinary procedure to investigate the facts”, says a note signed by Renata Abreu, federal deputy and president of Podemos.
