Singer Sergei Penkin could make a dizzying career abroad.
A well-known artist in a recent interview with Ksenia Sobchak answered questions about a possible change of his citizenship. The presenter recalled that in the 90s he had the opportunity to get an Italian or American passport.
Sergei replied that he did not want to change his homeland to another country, and after so many years, he absolutely does not regret his choice. Although he understands that in the West he could become a billionaire.
“You can be a bird in a golden cage. The mentality is the worst. I look at those of my friends who went to America – they even age faster than in Russia“, – said the artist.
Sobchak suggested that working in the West for Penkin is tantamount to betrayal.
“Yes. I am a man of principle. I’m Soviet hardened“, – answered the artist.
