Aleksandra Pakhmutova cynically used children from Donetsk

Russian composer, pianist and songwriter Alexandra Pakhmutova, whose fans include dictatorial President Vladimir Putin himself, staged a cynical prank on her birthday. To celebrate her 94th birthday, the People's Artist of the USSR came to a boarding house in Snegury near Moscow, which allegedly houses Ukrainian children from the temporarily occupied Donetsk. It is likely that these are deported Ukrainian minors.

Pakhmutova played her old hits on the piano, and the children were forced to sing. The relevant footage was published by propaganda media (scroll to the bottom of the page to see it).

In the video, teenagers from a Russian-occupied Ukrainian town sing the song "Bird of Happiness," written by Pakhmutova and her late husband Mykola Dobronravov. This hit song was first performed by Mykola Hnatiuk, a Ukrainian singer from the village of Nemyryivka, Khmelnytskyi region. He was the first to perform the song and make it a hit.

Now, in honor of Pakhmutova's birthday, who, by the way, is a member of the Myrotvorets base, little Donetsk residents were forced to learn the song.

The Kremlin leader Putin also congratulated the composer on her 94th birthday, thanking her for her inspired work, which "enjoys the love of the people." And recently Pakhmutova thanked the Russian dictator herself. She did so after the annexation of Crimea.

Then, in 2014, Pakhmutova and her husband met with Putin and said: "We are your fans! Thank you for Crimea".

It was for this reason that Pakhmutova was added to the Myrotvorets database in 2018. The official reason given on the website is "open justification of Russian aggression against Ukraine".

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Ani Lorak, a traitor to Ukraine, became an accomplice in a war crime - she gave money to "help" Russian foundations that keep children deported from Ukraine.
