Alla Pugacheva, one of the most well-known singers in Russia, has asked the government to label her a “foreign agent” in support of her adamantly anti-war husband Maxim Galkin.
He is also a celebrity in show business, and on Friday after denouncing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, he was called a “foreign agent.”
Pugacheva referred to her husband as “a truly incorruptible Russian patriot, who wants to put an end to our guys dying for illusory goals” on social media.
She has a long history of success.
The “illusory intentions” of the Kremlin in Ukraine, according to her, “make our country a pariah and the lives of our inhabitants very miserable.”
She noted that Galkin, a comedian, TV host, and singer, wished for “prosperity for his motherland, peace, and freedom of speech.”
The Russian government has branded several media outlets, political organizations, and people who openly oppose Kremlin policies as “foreign agents.”
A month after the Russian invasion, in late March, Pugacheva and Galkin traveled to Israel. In late April, Pugacheva and her children returned to Russia.
Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for President Vladimir Putin, stated about Galkin at the beginning of September that “our paths have divided – he has made really bad statements.”
Galkin criticized the alleged atrocities committed by Russian troops and asserted that the invasion of Ukraine could not be justified.
Russian musician Artemy Troitsky, who currently resides in Estonia after leaving Russia in 2014 due to his opposition to Vladimir Putin, told the BBC that Pugacheva’s contribution was significant.
He declared that Alla Pugacheva was the biggest pop star in Russia in the previous roughly 50 years.
She is a renowned character and has enormous fame. Since her husband, Maxim Galkin has made his anti-war sentiments numerous times and over months, I believe that many people had anticipated her doing this for some time.
“I believe that this is her first overtly political statement, which is rather upsetting to the Russian people. She’s not the only one, in my opinion, who could sway public opinion. All of these elements work against Putin and the war, including the Russian army’s blatant wrongdoings, the Ukrainian army’s offensive, the deteriorating economic situation, and others.
But I believe that Alla Pugacheva’s assertion is morally and emotionally flawed.
Although this assertion has been extensively refuted, Russia maintains that it is engaged in a conflict with neo-Nazis in Ukraine and feels threatened by the Nato alliance’s close ties to that country.
At least 5,718 civilians have died and 8,199 have been injured since the invasion on February 24. Additionally, more than seven million Ukrainians have been registered as refugees across Europe.
The true number of fatalities among civilians is thought to be thousands more. Thousands of combatants have died or suffered injuries.
Russia, a major provider of energy, and the West, which imposed severe sanctions in response to the invasion, are engaged in a financial war.
