Russian pop star names herself a foreign agentNews
The vastly popular singer Alla Pugacheva has told the Kremlin she wants to be listed as a foreign agent in solidarity with her husband, the singer and TV presenter Maxim Galkin, who has been penalised for anti-war remarks.
Pugacheva, 73, a national icon, called Galkin a ‘true and incorruptible patriot.’
She issued this challenge to the Putin regime:
Appeal to the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. I ask you to enroll me in the ranks of foreign agents of my beloved country, because I am in solidarity with my husband, an honest, decent and sincere person, a true and incorruptible patriot of Russia, who wishes the Motherland prosperity, a peaceful life, freedom of speech and an end to the death of our men for illusory goals that make our country an outcast and make life difficult for our citizens.
News of her criticism has gone viral in Russia. She is the recipient of state honours from Putin..
