Pop star Emilija Wellrock lost her father in the Ukraine war

When Emilija Wellrock (29) is on stage, the sun rises. She shines, dances and is always in a good mood. The pop singer currently has to fake this mood. She lost her father Michail († 51) in the Ukraine war.

She tells the newspaper “Bild”: “I almost passed out from the pain, sad, angry, angry. His death was so unnecessary.” A few days before his death, she spoke to him on the phone. “He said he was being trained on weapons to ensure calm in eastern Ukraine if necessary.”
