Russian pianist Denis Matsuev openly supports President Putin’s actions and foreign policy. His position, as usual, is soaked with good intentions: “I care what is going in Ukraine. I cannot and do not want to remain silent at this moment. Russia acts exclusively with peacekeeping and friendly intentions towards Ukraine, as it should be when it comes to fraternal peoples.”
He stressed that Ukraine for him is “one of the most beloved and fraternal countries in the world.” This is the birthplace of my mother, who lived there for nine years on Streletskaya Street in Kyiv.
In 2014, the pianist said: “I am sure that in future there will be no aggression, no armed confrontation, it just not possible.” What do we end up with?
A clear admirer of the “Russian world”, who, despite everything, continues to earn money riding around Europe by performing concerts there. One of them is planned in the city of Genoa, in northern Italy, at the largest opera house in Genoa – Teatro Carlo Felice.
We call for a boycott of the pianist’s concert by signing a petition on this website. Every signature is important in this fight, because every ruble earned by a Russian pianist may transform into one more cartridge in the machine gun magazine of a Russian soldier – a rapist and a murderer.
