“No way! I feel sorry about many people relating my song with politics. To me, it is, above all, a musical composition. I put my heart into it. It seems to me that where there’s politics, there are no feelings. In music, it’s quite the opposite: only emotion, only feeling can tell it all. No orchestrations, no words can reveal what’s there in one’s soul – only music itself can do that. Music and politics are like two different poles. I don’t think I belong there”, the singer said at the press conference broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
