''Lost almost everything'': famous Ukrainian director explains the real reason why Alla Pugacheva left Russia

"Alla lost almost everything," Oleh Bodnarchuk says, "This is a person of such a scale that it is very important to her how her book of life ends, what the last pages of this story will be about. Do you really think that she, a deep and sacrificial person, could allow her life story to end inside a terrorist country, where she sits between rivers of blood and watches dead bodies floating by? Moreover, a true artist and creator is always in protest against the government, and even more so against war. I'm sure that this protest was too important for her, and it once again showed her fans who she was."

"She couldn't do anything else," Bodnarchuk continues, "In 1986, Pugacheva was the first artist to go to Chernobyl after the accident to perform for the station's workers. It was an emotional act that cost her health because she received a large dose of radiation there. Almost no one remembers this event. I don't know if it matters to anyone today, either in Ukraine or in Russia. But she needed it first of all for herself, again for her own book of existence because she has a measure of responsibility to herself and the future."
