Singer Nikolai Baskov recalls a visit to the hospital with tears in his eyes.
The artist supports the Russian military in difficult times. The singer performs in the Donbass, visiting wounded soldiers. The artist spoke about the meeting with the commander, who, while defending his homeland, was seriously injured.
46-year-old Nikolai Baskov cannot hold back his tears, talking about the soldiers of the NVO who were injured.
“I gave concerts for refugees, performed. One of the incredible moments… I arrived at the hospital, I was asked to go up to the third floor, where the battalion commander was lying. I went to his room, one of his legs was amputated. He asked: “Can I hug you?” “Yes, I should hug you.! ”- the musician recalled in the program“ Life and Fate ”on the Russia 1 channel.
The artist asked the battalion commander for which he thanks him. And the military replied that without the support of the Russians, the soldiers would have lost heart long ago. “He said: “Your words gave strength to the notion that you care that we are on the front lines. I have such an emotionality, because everything is in front of my eyes. Many do not see this, but our military are great heroes! People who do everything so that we calmly walk the streets, enjoy life“, Baskov added.
The performer will continue to visit soldiers injured in battle. As Nikolai Viktorovich noted, he would never abandon the wounded in difficult times. And the Basques will not betray Russia either.
“I never had another citizenship, I didn’t buy property abroad, I didn’t even have accounts there! How can you be ungrateful to your country, how can you oppose? Many are weak…“- concluded the singer.
