Chinese opera singer Wang Fang performed the Russian song “Katyusha” at the ruins of the bombed Mariupol Theatre in the Russian-occupied Mariupol in Ukraine, where the Russian army killed more than 600 civilians, Nexta TV reports.
Wang Fang calls the Ukrainian military “Nazis” and accuses them of “killing the children of Donbas.” Her husband, Zhou Xiaoping, is a member of the Chinese Communist Party and part of a delegation of Chinese bloggers visiting the occupied territories of Ukraine and meeting with pro-Russian collaborators, Nexta writes.
