"I call them mongrels": POSITIFF suggested why Lorak, Basta and Povalii betrayed Ukraine
Ukrainian singer Oleksii Zavgorodnii, known by his stage name POSITIFF, has suggested why his Ukrainian-born colleagues have abandoned their homeland. According to the artist, the opportunists Ani Lorak, Taisiia Povalii, Anna Asti, Basta and others are simply looking for a place where they can make more money.
Oleksii Zavgorodnii calls stars who sell their honor and conscience for rubles "mongrels." He said this in an interview with UNIAN.
"I think these artists have taken root in the form of lucrative contracts. Their main value is money. I call them mongrels, because they don't care what's going on around them. They will be where the fat bone is given. If there was another country instead of Russia, they would be there. These people are idealess, plasticine. So I don't give a damn about them. They will always be slaves, and they are fine with that. There is no need to think or talk about them," POSITIFF said.
As for the Ukrainian stars who, after the full-scale invasion, renounced Russia and started promoting their music in Ukraine or abroad, Oleksii Zavgorodnii does not condemn them.
The singer believes that "changing shoes" is simply a correction of the mistakes that Ukrainians made before 2022.
"If they have chosen their future path with the Ukrainian people and abandoned that 'aqua-fresh' flag, it's already great! Everyone has a chance to make amends and move on, getting on the right track. Artists are a separate kind of people. They are creators, very vulnerable and dependent on the opinions and feedback of the community. I respect such artists for starting over," the singer explained.
POSITIFF believes that only with sincerity and a competent approach, artists who once worked with Russia will be able to win back the disgrace and love of Ukrainians.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that POSITIFF answered whether they continue to be friends with Potap, who became a scandal during the war. The musicians used to be members of the MOZGI band, but now they are not.
