Mr. Freeman, the actor whose low-pitched voice exudes authority and is readily recognizable from scores of movies and narrations, has antagonized some Russian officials for his appearance in the video, which was posted by the Committee to Investigate Russia, a new group that seeks to raise awareness about Russia’s involvement in the election.

His appearance in the video prompted a hashtag on Twitter, #StopMorganLie, with many of the posts in Russian, and unflattering descriptions from Russian news outlets, one of which called him an “American propaganda loudspeaker” repeating “Russophobic clichés,” the BBC reported.
