In Blagoveshchensk, they demand the cancellation of Krystyna Orbakaite’s concerts

The “Union of Veterans of Afghanistan and Special Military Operations” demanded that the governor of the Amur region, Vasiliy Orlov, cancel the concerts of pop singer Krystyna Orbakaite in Blagoveshchensk because of her American citizenship.

The appeal states that American-made projectiles are killing Russian soldiers in Ukraine, so “at such a difficult time for our country, the act of a US citizen looks sacrilegious and immoral.” If the concert takes place, the veterans will perceive it as “a personal insult and disrespect to the memory of their fallen comrades,” the text says.

Tickets for Orbakaite’s two concerts on March 15 and 16 are sold at the box office of the Public and Cultural Center of Blagoveshchensk. Their cost varies from 2,500 to 6,000 rubles

Earlier, after the appeal of “Battle Brotherhood” to the authorities of Buryatia, the concert of Krystyna Orbakaite in Ulan-Ude, scheduled for March 13, was canceled. Regional authorities did not specify the reasons for canceling Orbakaite’s speech, noting that she is not recognized as a “foreign agent” and her activities are “not prohibited”.

In December 2023, Russian tabloids wrote that Orbakaite returned from the USA to Russia and appeared at the “Song of the Year” concert, as well as on the air of “Channel One”.

The director of the singer Alexander Kachan said that he does not understand what the cancellation of Orbakaite’s performances in Russia could be connected with, and reminded that she participated in New Year’s concerts on federal channels.

St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Chita, Bratsk, Khabarovsk and Irkutsk are still included in the tour schedule.

  • Kristina Orbakaite is the daughter of singer Alla Pugacheva, who spoke out against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 and emigrated to Israel with her husband, comedian Maxim Galkin. In April 2023, Orbakaite released a single called “Alla will sing”.
