Calling Russians slaves and dancing to Ukrainian songs: how Alla Pugacheva proved her anti-war stance

Alla Pugacheva turns 75

On Monday, April 15, Russian singer Alla Pugacheva celebrates her 75th birthday. She is considered a symbol of Soviet and post-Soviet Russian pop music, and therefore it came as a great shock to the citizens of the terrorist country when the diva did not support the devastating war in Ukraine and emigrated to Israel with her family after February 24. She was not deterred by her large fortune, property, titles, or awards. Alla Borisovna has become a bone in the throat of Russians, who shout from all corners how they "don't need her." The artist herself does not make loud statements, although even her laconic, veiled statements become loud.

On the occasion of the star's anniversary, OBOZ.UA decided to recall Alla Pugacheva's words and actions that demonstrate her true position on Russian aggression. Meanwhile, in the singer's homeland, they are preparing documents to recognize her as a "foreign agent." What's funny is that the Russians hope to annoy the diva in this way, even though she herself asked to be awarded this status a year ago.

So, as we have already noted, after the full-scale invasion, the Galkin-Pugacheva family with their young children Lisa and Harry left their homeland and emigrated to Israel. The showman, comedian-parodist, and husband of the singer has made it clear that he opposes the war in Ukraine. Alla Borysivna, on the other hand, was in no hurry to speak out, which, of course, raised many questions.

For a long time, the celebrity's position remained unclear. Later, however, the prima donna rather cautiously revealed her attitude to the events in Ukraine, using witty hints or wise veiled quotes.

In particular, in September 2022, Pugacheva asked the Russian Ministry of Justice to include her in the ranks of "foreign agents," where her husband is already.

"I ask you to enroll me in the ranks of 'foreign agents' of my beloved country. Because I stand in solidarity with my husband, who is an honest, decent, and sincere man, a true and incorruptible patriot of Russia, who wishes his homeland prosperity, peaceful life, freedom of speech, and an end to the deaths of our boys for illusory goals that make our country an outcast and burden the lives of our citizens," the singer wrote.

And now, the Russians have allegedly decided to "punish" Pugacheva with this title themselves. Vitaly Borodin, the head of the Federal Project for Security and Anti-Corruption, wrote on his social media that he had received a response from the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation to his appeal, and now the prosecutor's office is asking the Ministry of Justice to recognize the artist as a "foreign agent."

It is not known which moment in this matter was the last straw, but presumably, the Russians are offended that Pugacheva told the truth by calling them slaves.

"Oh, my God! How lucky I am that I am hated by the people I have always hated. If they liked me, it would mean that I was singing and living in vain. The reason is clear. Let them gnash their teeth. They were serfs, but they became slaves," the diva wrote on her social media, responding to hysterical comments from offended compatriots.

Not so long ago, Alla Borisovna was dancing to the Ukrainian folk song "Oh, there are two oaks on the mountain". The singer recorded a happy video of herself rocking out to the famous Ukrainian-language song. This video became more eloquent than any words, causing another wave of hysteria among Z-patriots.

Indeed, Pugacheva's position is better described by her actions than by her words. Recently, she responded to a little Ukrainian girl in a public space when she thanked the singer for her pro-Ukrainian stance.

"Millions, millions of pink roses. I give, I give to you, to you." Thank you for being with us. And I love you very, very much," said three-year-old Ukrainian blogger Nadiya Chekman in the video.

She received a reply from Alla Borisovna: "My heart and soul are with you". And Maxim Galkin wrote in Ukrainian: "God bless you, my dear."

And this is not the first time that Pugacheva has addressed Ukrainians in comments, thus demonstrating her concern. For example, the singer wrote to her colleague Natalia Mogilevska after another Russian missile attack. At the time, the Ukrainian artist was in Kryvyi Rih preparing for a concert, and a Russian missile hit a residential building, killing innocent civilians.

After writing about it in her publication, Mogilevska received a comment from Pugacheva: "Oh, Natalia! My heart goes out to you. It's horrible!"

As OBOZ.UA wrote, earlier at the Moscow Economic Forum (MEF), where Russians should discuss their economy, they could not resist scathing and shameful comments about artists who did not support the terrorist war in Russia and left the country. For example, the offended propagandists were particularly careful to pick on singer Alla Pugacheva. "She and people like her need to be crushed and trampled into the dirt," the Z-patriots concluded.
