    Bravo! He speaks up against the criminal act that is happening in Ukraine according to his own intimate convictions, as a free individual, from a free country ( a safe environment) , and not because the prevailing dogma of ”righteousness” or ”heroism” requires it.

  • M McAlpine says:

    Well said sir!

  • AndrewB says:

    The more Russian artists who speak out against this criminal and vicious act of agression against the people of Ukraine the better. Bravo Evgeny Kissin.

      “Milk, and then just as it comes? How many lumps of polonium?”

  • Daniel NYC says:

    A true Russian patriot who cares about his country and is willing to speak out for the people of Russia and not the “czar” wannabe and his minions who care nothing for decency, morality and human life. With undo respect for Evgeny Kissin as not only an artist but humanitarian.
