Tamara Gverdtsiteli, who has been missing for almost two years, has expressed her political stance and appeared in public for the first time
The Georgian and Russian pop singer Tamara Gverdtsiteli, who canceled all her concerts in the terrorist country after Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine and disappeared from the media for a long time, has made a public appearance. The artist gave a concert in Kazakhstan, where she very carefully expressed her political position.
Previously, the star ignored terrorism in Ukraine, although she refused to return to Russia. The footage of the celebrity was spread by propaganda channels.
Gverdtsiteli, preparing the audience for the song "Candle," mentioned the war and called for peace. However, she did so without mentioning the attacker or the victim, so that everyone could interpret the position as they saw fit.
"What is happening in the world today is that each of us has to light our own candle of kindness, peace, and humanity in our hearts," the singer said.
The concert is reported to have taken place in Astana. Earlier, the network had information about the singer's tour in the United States. Witnesses said that the vocalist hardly sang in Russian.
As a reminder, on February 24, 2022, Gverdtsiteli published her last post, a fragment of a concert on the occasion of Russia's Defender's Day, but did not say a word about Russia's attack on Ukraine.
After that, she urgently left the country and moved to the United States. Through her manager, the star made it clear that she was taking a hiatus and cutting ties with Russia. No political position, condemnation, or support for the war appeared on her page.
The artist almost never gave interviews and avoided communication with her fans by all means. This angered the Russians for whom Gverdtsiteli used to sing. The announcement of concerts in the United States forced them to demand that the singer be stripped of her Russian citizenship. The scandal did not end, and the artist continued to remain silent.
One day she mentioned that she was worried about her mother, who was from Odesa and had a hard time surviving the bombing of her hometown. In 2022, the performer's mother died, and Gverdtsiteli herself was hospitalized. In 2023, in Moldova, she performed her mother's favorite song, "The Violin is Playing," in Ukrainian with tears in her eyes.
