A resident from Donetsk called the song of Jamala ridiculous when at that moment Donbass is under fire every day and people are dying.
Resident of Donbass Irina Puchkova spoke out about the winning song at the “Eurovision” performed by Ukrainian singer Jamala.
On her page on Facebook, the woman wrote that she read the lyrics and realized that in fact, it absolutely suits the events that occured in Donbass. According to her, Ukrainian punishers also came to her place and killed.
“She thinks she’s singing about the Tatars. But she sings about the crimes on my land. She just does not understand this. It us now here they come and kill. My children had to be sent away from the war, because foreigners came here and killed”, she wrote.
According to her, coming from the lips of the singer who supports the “camp of murderers”, the words sound very strange.
