– It does not interest me at all. I worked and I will continue to work in my native country, for the good of my country. I cannot react otherwise. The last time I was in kyiv was on my birthday, December 18, 2013. At the time when the bacchanalia on the Maidan took place. There was a crowded ice palace, which could not be approached, as the nearest metro stations were blocked. I still fondly remember those performances and how we were received in Kyiv,” Averbukh told .
