While Putin himself declared that he liked the music of Elton John, and would meet him, he failed to do so in 2015.

One thought on “Elton John suffers russian censorship”

  1. there is a point where someone would say “why are you surprised?” But I see your point. Ordinary Russians cannot tell the difference between fake news and real news and no matter how big, this needs to be called out. Your story is significant because there is clear evidence of duplicity. It therefore fits in with a pattern of behaviour that seems odd to us in the West but that is clearly routine in Russia. We need to stop giving interviews, and report the fraud when it happens, because that in the end is what is happening. This is fraudulent- a misrepresentation of the product. More people must know.
    By the way, like the drawings and the presentation of this. a serious story with drawings- cool.
