All concerts in Europe and UAE were canceled: Russia takes revenge on singer Nargiz for supporting Ukraine
Nargiz (Zakirova), a Russian singer from Uzbekistan, a US citizen who openly opposed the war in Ukraine, for which she was deported from Russia and banned from entering until 2072, has once again suffered revenge from the Kremlin. The authorities of the terrorist country managed to cancel the pro-Ukrainian artist's concerts in Europe and the UAE.
Nargiz addressed her fans in a video message posted on her personal Instagram page. The singer explained that she was treated the same way as the anti-war comedian and showman Maxim Galkin.
As you know, the day before, the parodist said that Putin's government "pressured" Indonesia not to let him enter the country where he was to perform.
"The reason was given almost immediately and repeated several times by different border guard officers - a letter from the Russian government asking me not to enter Bali. The letter was shown to me, but, of course, I was politely refused a copy. All the services, both transport and border guards, expressed benevolent surprise at how I deserved such an honor and such personal attention from the Russian authorities," Galkin said a few days ago.

Nargiz, meanwhile, said that she suffered the same fate - the Kremlin decided to take revenge on her for her adequate anti-Putin and pro-Ukrainian stance, so it "pressured" the organizers of her tours and concerts in the EU and the UAE to cancel the performances without any specific reasons.
"The European tour was supposed to start in mid-November and end in early December. It included Germany, Latvia, the Czech Republic, and Dubai in the UAE... There was a lot of news in the media that allegedly no one was buying tickets for Nargiz's concerts because the European public had declared a boycott against Nargiz. In fact, this is a dirty lie," the singer commented.
Nargiz also emphasized that the organizers of the concerts, after a "dialogue" with the Kremlin, decided not to even notify the singer personally that her performances had been canceled.
"On my own behalf, I would like to add and appeal to my loyal fans. All my concert cancellations are not of my own free will and certainly not my fault. The organizers of the tours and concerts, having received an order from the Russian authorities to cancel, did not find it necessary to inform me personally. I really hope that you have been reimbursed for the money you spent on buying tickets," Nargiz added.
As a reminder, on the first anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Nargiz decided to support Ukrainians and sang "Oh, there's a red viburnum in the meadow". The celebrity wrapped herself in the flag of Ukraine and performed the song in the center of the highway.
