The Chinese opera diva decided to “perform” at the Mariupol Drama Theater, where the Russian military killed more than 600 people. She sang the Soviet song "Katyusha", which was sung by the honor guard of the Chinese People's Liberation Army during a military parade on Red Square in Moscow. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reacted to the “bone singing”.
The Chinese opera singer Wang-Fang arrived in temporarily occupied Mariupol. Within the walls of the drama theater destroyed by the Russians, she sang the Soviet song "Katyusha".
“I hope she liked the ghost of over 600 Mariupol killed by Russians so much that they will haunt her with nightmares for the rest of her life”, Andryushchenko wrote on Telegram.
According to the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the performance of the Chinese song "Katyusha" in a place where over 600 people died as a result of Russian aggression is an example of complete moral degradation.
According to information available to the Ministry, a group of Chinese bloggers arrived in the temporarily occupied city. Their arrival blatantly violates the legislation of Ukraine that regulates the crossing of the state border by foreigners, wrote Nikolenko.
Ukraine respects China's territorial integrity and expects explanations from the Chinese side regarding the purpose of the stay of Chinese citizens in Mariupol and how they reached the temporarily occupied Ukrainian city.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that it was initiating the introduction of a ban on the entry to Ukraine of the singer herself and all persons who illegally entered the temporarily occupied territory with her.
As it turns out, Wang-Fang's husband is Zhou Xiaoping, who is a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, a patriotic United Front organization led by the Chinese Communist Party. Yuriy Poita, head of the Asia-Pacific section at the Center for Army, Conversion and Disarmament Studies (CACDS), made the announcement on his Facebook page.
As Poita learned, yesterday he posted a post on his page on the Chinese social networking site Weibo in which he supported his wife's actions and began to spread Russian propaganda. He talked about what happened: "The Grand Theater, bombed by the Ukrainian Nazis, "had just been restored together and was fired upon by four missiles of the Ukrainian army", "repelled various attacks by NATO mercenaries and the Ukrainian army", "atrocities of NATO mercenaries and the Ukrainian army, who have been bombing residential areas of Mariupol for many years.”
After some time, the post was deleted, but Poita managed to take a screenshot of what was written. The singer's husband also wrote that after the “performance” Van-Fang met with the self-proclaimed leader of the so-called DNR, Denys Pushylin.
