Pop stars like Helene Fischer have clear words for Russia – Bernhard Brink follows suit

Bombed cities, separated families and endless streams of refugees: Horrific news from Ukraine still reaches us every day. While some pop stars don’t want to express themselves politically, others have no problem getting involved or publicly speaking their minds. For example, Helene Fischer (the pop singer has already published everything) on ​​her stage comeback at the end of March.

While she didn’t name Russian President Vladimir Putin, her words were unequivocal: “I absolutely despise what is going on. Especially this one person, I think you know who I’m talking about.” Now Bernhard Brink is following suit and raging against Putin at the “Hit Night of the Year”.
