Alla Pugacheva left Russia

According to the Russian news agencies, Alla Pugacheva left Russia. She left Russia for the first time with her kids and husband, the TV presenter and comedian Maxim Galkin, shortly after Russia started war in Ukraine, but returned to her homeland in August.

Galkin, who was born in Odesa, has condemned the war on social media, and after he was declared a “foreign agent” by the Russian justice ministry earlier this month – in effect making him persona non grata in Russia - Pugacheva wrote on Instagram, “Please include me in the ranks of foreign agents of my beloved country, since I am in solidarity with my husband”.

Media outlets write that the singer will probably not return to the country for a long time.
