On July 30, British musician Sting gave a concert in Warsaw, during which he said a few words in support of Ukraine. He said that the war in our country is absurd.

So, the artist stopped his performance to say: “The war in Ukraine is an absurdity built on lies. If we swallow this lie, it will eat us. But lies are terribly afraid of the truth. The truth must be heard. We cannot lose this battle.” .

He added that democracy can be inefficient, it can provoke confusion and frustration. But, according to him, you still need to fight for it.

Sting noted that now Russian President Vladimir Putin is lying to his nation, to the whole world and, first of all, to himself. Therefore, this must be fought. 

“Democracy has been attacked, attacked in every country in the world. If we don’t defend it, we will lose it forever. Democracy is sometimes a mess. Democracy is a frustration. Democracy can be ineffective. Needs constant attention. But it’s still worth it.” fight,” the artist added.

Recall that earlier Sting and his wife transferred financial assistance to Ukraine.

  1. I was never a real fan of Sting but I certainly appreciate his words. I’d love to see an organized effort to get the so called Hollywood elite out there and really make an effort instead of discussing their “pronoun”. I know Liv Schreiber Is doing a great job just wish there were more.

  2. Well said Sting!
    According to Celebrity Net Worth, he’s got $550m.
    I don’t know how much he has already donated, but $10m would be a reasonable amount; being only 2% of his wealth.
    May I suggest he makes one of his many homes available for Ukrainian refugees?
    He’s a highly-regarded man and that might encourage fellow artists to dip into their wallets.

    • He did say he will not give anything to his children and that his fortune will be gone when he will be dead.

      I think he is a reasonable guy that remained quite sane over the years despite his fame and wealth.

      Hopefully that will remain this way.
