Two Ukrainian natives are on the list of Russia's best singers of 2023: who are these traitors
The terrorist country decided to choose the best pop singers for 2023 by popular vote. The lists were headed by well-known supporters of Putin's regime who fiercely support the terrorist war in Ukraine. Among them are also performers, or rather, performers originally from Ukraine who betrayed their country for the sake of bloody rubles.
The results of the voting were published by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM). Anna Asti from Cherkasy and Lolita Milyavska from Mukachevo, Transcarpathia, were named among the "best pop singers in Russia this year."
The citizens of the aggressor country named Polina Gagarina as the best Russian singer this year (19%). As you know, she willingly performs at propaganda concerts and rallies in honor of the annexation of Ukrainian territories and other "holidays" of the occupiers. She is followed by another Putin fan, Larysa Dolina (11%). The top three leaders are rounded out by the "Ukrainian" Anna Asti (Anna Dziuba is the singer's real name). 6% of respondents voted for the traitor. The native of Cherkasy seems to be quite comfortable in the company of those who support the genocide of the Ukrainian people and the bombing of once peaceful cities. Before the Great War, she recorded songs with Philip Kirkorov, and then continued to entertain the Russian public and collaborate with Putinists.
Lolita is much lower on the list. Valeria, Pelageya, and Iryna Allegrova are in front of her, all with 5%. And Slava, Milyavska, Klava Koka and Elena Vayenga have 3% each. It's ridiculous that 4% of Russians voted for Alla Pugacheva, who emigrated from the aggressor country after the full-scale invasion and supported her husband, Maxim Galkin, who openly condemned the war and Putin's regime.
However, these votes and percentages don't play any significant role - Lolita in Russia performs in half-empty halls, and no one buys tickets for her big concert on the occasion of her 60th birthday. Anna Asti apparently decided to help her struggling compatriot, and not only her, by opening her own music label, FENIX MUSIC.
"The singer has already taken famous Russian artists under her wing: Costa Lacosta, ST, Shortparis, RSAC, Shchunyata, Nike Borzov and, as we mentioned above, Lolita. Read more in our article.
Interestingly, Ani Lorak was not on the list of the "best pop singers in Russia". Obviously, the Russians have not fully forgiven the "Ukrainians" for her "donations" for drones for the Armed Forces.
As for the singers whom the Russians recognized as "the best," this list would be more accurately titled "The Kremlin's Main Jesters and Fans of the War in Ukraine." SHAMAN took the first place (33%), the same singer who sings "I am Russian," followed by Oleg Gazmanov (11%) and Nikolay Baskov (10%). Not to forget Sergey Lazarev, Grigory Leps, Philip Kirkorov and Lev Leshchenko, who are ranked lower.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Anna Asti has officially become a traitor - she has received Russian citizenship. The native of Cherkasy, who saw the terror of Russia with her own eyes as she met the full-scale invasion in Kyiv, had problems earning bloody rubles in Russia because of her Ukrainian passport. Now, nothing will prevent the "Ukrainian" from earning money in the terrorist country, and thus officially paying taxes that will be converted into weapons for the occupiers and missiles against peaceful Ukrainian cities.
