Singer Alla Pugacheva spoke to the President of the USSR.
Yesterday, the prima donna, who returned to Russia, saw off the only president of the USSR on her last journey. During the funeral ceremony, she whispered something at the coffin of the deceased, and today she dedicated mournful words to politics.
Russia said goodbye to Mikhail Gorbachev. The mourning ceremony in the House of Unions was attended by many media people, among them Alla Pugacheva. The prima donna expressed condolences to the relatives of the statesman. And then for a few seconds she stood at the coffin of the deceased. It was clear that the artist was talking to the late politician, but what exactly the star was saying at that moment is unknown. A few days after Gorbachev’s death, Pugacheva dedicated farewell words to the ex-president of the USSR.
“I haven’t sobbed like this in a long time. Gone is the era in which we gained freedom, ceased to be an “evil empire” for the whole world, the fear for the future of our children has disappeared. And most importantly, Gorbachev rejected violence as a way of politics and maintaining his own power. Everything is not without sin, and politicians too. The main thing is that mistakes should not be fatal for all mankind. Humanity and nobility have disappeared somewhere. The ability to compromise has disappeared if it is in the interests of the people who dream of living without worry for the future of their children.”, — wrote the 73-year-old artist.
By the way, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, TV presenter Dmitry Kiselev, co-founder of the Yabloko party Grigory Yavlinsky, producer Viktor Drobysh and others also attended the farewell ceremony for the former leader of the state.
Recall that Mikhail Gorbachev passed away on August 30 at the age of 92 after a long illness. After the funeral service, the ex-president was buried at the Novodevichy cemetery next to his wife Raisa Maksimovna.
