Earlier, the head of the British foreign Minister said that carried out Thursday’s concert is “a tawdry attempt to divert attention from the suffering of millions of Syrians”.

“Everything was done for him and not because he understands the music, as we now understand it and the music does not understand, because in addition to reviews of the concert, his other comments don’t matter anymore,” said Zakharova.

It is worth noting that before the concert to the audience, among which were Russian soldiers, by teleconference asked the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. He thanked all the participants, noting that the concert is “an amazing humanitarian action”.
