Reports – Today we have read that Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst wants to visit Russia and meet President Putin.
According to RT.com Conchita would like to visit Russia and would not refuse the chance to spend a week with the country’s president – in order to better understand him.
“What does it mean to be Vladimir Putin? What pressure is he under? At the end of the day, Putin just wants to be respected. This desire for respect unites Putin with minorities.”
The agency reports that Conchita commented on her large fan base in Russia that sent her to #1 in the iTunes charts there
“This is incredibly beautiful because it shows me that many Russians do not agree with the decisions of their government,”
As for the possible meet notoriously anti-gay St. Petersburg legislator Vitaly Milonov has sent a request to Russia’s Culture Ministry, hoping to ban Wurst from performing in Moscow while President Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, reportedly laughed off the possibility of a meeting between Wurst and the Russian president.
However with Wurst meeting UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during his visit to Vienna and who joined Wurst at a global conference urging LGBT tolerance this might not be totally out of the question.
With Russia’s image following the recent conflicts with Ukraine and the very public reaction to the Tolmachevy Sisters at this year’s Eurovision song contest this meeting might not sound as far-fetched as it appears.
Do you think that Conchita visiting Russia is a good idea? Do you think President Putin would be willing to meet Chonchita? Is it time for a meet between both people?
