Mika Newton about the soundtrack to the propaganda series "Kadetstvo": I was not allowed to make decisions

Mika Newton recalled how her song became the soundtrack to the TV series "Kadetstvo"

In 2006-2007, a Russian television series, "'Kadetstvo' (Cadetship), which tells the story of the lives of students at the Suvorov School, was aired on Ukrainian screens. The project was filmed with the support of the Russian Ministry of Defense, and only now Ukrainians have realized that the series was propaganda, as it "educated" Russians to "defend" their country, but in fact - to occupy a foreign country through a bloody war.

The star also added that despite her residence in America, she will continue to represent Ukraine on the international stage, so that our country becomes a powerful and reliable platform for the development of artists and not only.

"I believe that Ukraine will become the most powerful in the world. And I will do my best to represent it as best I can from my side," summed up the performer.
