A "coven" on the occasion of the occupation of Ukrainian regions held in Moscow: Putin "ditched" Russians, while TV ignored them at all
he day before, a "coven of patriots", which was solemnly named a concert and attended by Kremlin pocket artists, was held in Moscow. Although it was no different from other propaganda events, this year's show was unexpectedly quiet. Dictator Vladimir Putin did not appear, despite Russians' expectations, and the crowd with flags was ignored on TV.
This may indicate that the tyrant has partially reconciled himself to the idea of de-occupation and is trying not to remind the people of his failed plans. The Russian media also described the concert rather dryly, even though all Russian stars were invited.
The "coven" lasted two hours. It featured performers who regularly take part in such events, including Vladimir Mashkov, Shaman, Alexander Marshal, singer Zara, Oleg and Rodion Gazmanov, Stas Piekha, Nadezhda Babkina, Larisa Dolina, and Nikolai Baskov.
Putin usually appears at events like this with another speech about "Nazi Satanists" and the "decaying West," but this time the "patriots" were not even shown a video of their leader. According to propagandists, he was at the opening of the International Parliamentary Conference "Russia-Latin America."
he concert viewers didn't have to show up on TV either. Previously, the top pro-government channels postponed their bloodthirsty political shows to show the "unity" of the Russian Federation. This time even the Internet broadcast was not available.
Judging by the meek reaction to the event, Russians saw nothing new. A handful of Kremlin artists performed their arsenal of "inspiring and patriotic" songs glorifying the war, and a particularly crazy poet recited a poem about the swastika and Stepan Bandera.
Ironically, the concert was held under the slogan "One Country. One family. One Russia", which suspiciously resonates with the motto of Nazi Germany "One people, one Reich, one Fuhrer".
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote that the organizers of the concert in Moscow brought people from the region, forcing state employees and students to go. The cost of playing the role of a Putin fan is estimated at 600 rubles (225 UAH).
