Russian and Ukrainian social media users were on the same side due to the recent speech by Svetlana Loboda and Max Barsky. Ukrainian artists sang songs in Russian.
The news about this appeared in the Telegram channel “And now attention!”. The users gathered in the comments began a heated discussion about the unacceptability of such behavior and harshly criticized the performers.
Many noted that the artists who condemned the special operation to protect Donbass should have completely switched to using Ukrainian. Their lack of original compositions in that language is no excuse.
Users from Russia were especially outraged that Loboda and Barsky were “shitting” on the country. However, this did not prevent them from continuing to use the Russian language to earn money.
Earlier it became known that Laima Vaikule could provide false information about income from Russian business. If the information is confirmed, the Latvian performer risks becoming a defendant in a criminal case or being brought to administrative responsibility.
