I am very sorry for him and the people close to me from Ukraine, unfortunately, the fanatical people who have captured the propaganda and news agendas do not allow people to listen to their family, friends and other alternative opinions and news. Meanwhile, I was lucky, only my songs were banned, yes my Bunny, ”Kirkorov wrote on his page.
