Russia canceled large concert on the anniversary of the annexation of Crimea at the Luzhniki Statdium
Russia has canceled a big concert for the anniversary of the annexation of Crimea at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. Authorities of the aggressor country decided "not to arrange a large celebration" in 2023 but to hold "spot events".
This is reported in the Russian media. Previously, the concert was attended by extras, found on social networks.
In particular, the "Mega Volunteer Moscow" organization, which had already recruited a crowd for the concert on February 22, started collecting the data of the audience through questionnaires for the concert "Crimean spring" on March 18. But now they have reported that there will not be a big concert.
"For reasons beyond our control, the city changed the format of the celebration of the Day of the reunification of Crimea with Russia on March 18," the organization reported.
Earlier, a "Patriots of Russia" group in "VKontakte", a social network banned in Ukraine, also announced a set of extras and reported that at the moment the organizers are deciding whether to hold the concert.
According to Russian media, instead of a broad celebration this year, there will be a point celebration. This will include flash mobs, lectures, concerts, car rallies, etc., a source close to the Kremlin told Vedomosti newspaper.
Recall that on February 22, Russia held a coven at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow under the guise of a "holiday concert". The program of the event, for which the crowd was recruited for 500 rubles per "head," included a speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In his speech, the Russian dictator spoke again about the war against Ukraine. This time Putin was particularly pretentious and unusually laconic.
Even before the sabbath started at the Luzhniki Stadium, there was a line for free buckwheat and sausages. They interested Russians much more than anything else.
