The Ukrainian pop singer could not stay away from the politics. In these challenging times, they are on opposite sides of the barricades: Ani Lorak tried to take the position between two fires, keeping the Ukrainian and Russian fans. Zlata Ognevich, who was born in pro-Russian Crimea, showed herself as a patriot.
Most recently, she has created a new studio version of the Ukrainian national anthem, which is presented on her Facebook page.
In the social network, she writes that the song means a lot to us. Our genetic code is in it. "In the evening, I was working in the studio and decided to sing … Today my anthem of Ukraine has this mood".
