"Why aren't you fighting? Go and enlist!": singer EL Kravchuk sympathizes with men abroad who are afraid to return to Ukraine because of the war

EL Kravchuk sympathizes with men who are afraid to return to Ukraine from abroad

Famous Ukrainian singer Andrii Ostapenko (EL Kravchuk) sympathizes with men abroad who want to return to Ukraine but cannot. Many of them were on tour or working when Russia's full-scale invasion began, and they are afraid to return home because of mass mobilization.

However, one of the reasons for this behavior is the aggressive statements of Ukrainians on social media with comments calling for all men to be sent to the front "indiscriminately," Kravchuk told EL in an interview with Telegraf. In his opinion, everyone should enlist, not necessarily in the area of active hostilities but also in the rear.

"I believe that if a musician is part of a famous band, they are more useful on stage because there should be a rear as well. It's a very big mistake to call everyone indiscriminately. When I read comments on my social media where people say, 'Why aren't you fighting? Go and enlist!". And I do, I really do, I already have two medals. I serve with my song, my weapon is my microphone," the artist explained.

In particular, Andrii said that he is ready to go to the front to perform his songs to support the Ukrainian military who are defending Ukraine.

"I don't know, maybe it's not the right thing to say, but I'm also ready to sing where it's risky. I want to go to the army as a man and a singer to the very front line," he said.

According to EL Kravchuk, the problem with men waiting out the war abroad is disloyalty to the law. However, upon returning, everyone has to "work off their guilt."

"At the same time, I really believe that men abroad dream of a normal law that will help them return legally, pay off their debt to the state, work off their 'guilt' and return home safely," the singer explained.

Andrii's father was a military man, so he knows very well that the army needs not only soldiers but also people of other professions. Therefore, the singer urges not to be afraid of the army.

"However, the army needs different people. My father was a military man, a teacher, so I lived in military units and saw the huge infrastructure there. Soldiers need food, transportation, clothes, etc. Many professions have something to do there, and there is no need to be afraid. And you should play the trumpet in the army, too," Kravchuk said.
