She burns bridges with Russia: singer Zemfira received French citizenship
Russian rock singer Zemfira, who was recognized as a foreign agent on February 10, 2023, received French citizenship. As it became known, she has been living in Paris for more than a year and a half, where, together with Renata Litvinova, she founded a company in the performing arts.
This was reported by the Russian Telegram channel Shot. However, the performer is in no hurry to sever all ties with the Russian Federation, as she recently registered a new legal entity, "Rodina" in Moscow. The company will be engaged in sound recording.
In addition, it is worth recalling that in early May 2023 Zemfira filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Justice with the requirement to lift its status as a foreign agent. This step allows the artists not to report every six months on their income. Russian comedian and Alla Pugacheva's husband Maxim Galkin did the same.
The celebrity has supported Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. While giving concerts around the world, she often criticizes the Russian authorities and cheers up our people. During a show in Cyprus, Zemfira gave a speech: "I don't like or know how to speak from the stage, but I pray every day that the war will stop. For my country to stop this war."
And at a concert in London, the 46-year-old artist said: "I want to express my support for Ukraine. There's a war going on right now. Absolutely senseless and brutal. And right now my country is destroying Ukraine and itself. I really want peace. No war." We would also like to report that in October 2022 Zemfira's compositions were taken off the air of Russian radio stations.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that Russian actress Yana Troyanova fled Russia to France and called her fellow citizens "drunken and uneducated beggars." Russians are asking for her to be added to the list of foreign agents. Read more at the link.
