Soube pelo "The Rest is Noise" de Alex Ross que Arvo Pärt, o compositor estoniano, deu uma entrevista ao New York Times onde refere a acção de Putin na Ucrânia nos seguintes termos: "It cannot be called anything else but a crime.”
Diz ainda Pärt,
“I am very critical of Putin’s government and absolutely shocked about the latest events in Ukraine.” [Mr. Putin] “spread around him massive amounts of hostility and aggression, which has its own dynamics and can now only grow. You cannot take it back anymore. There is no control over it today.”
Mais ainda o admiro.
Fratres, pois claro. Ucrainae Fratres.
