Russian pop superstar Alla Pugacheva on Sunday denounced the Ukraine conflict and the “death of our boys for illusory goals” amid severe repression of any anti-Kremlin criticism.

This is the first time that the legendary crooner has publicly spoken out about the Ukraine offensive.

Her husband Maxim Galkin had just been recognised as a foreign agent – a label reminiscent of “enemy of the people” that has been used extensively against opponents, journalists and human rights activists.

“I am asking you to include me on the foreign agents list of my beloved country,” 73-year-old Pugacheva told the Russian justice ministry – and her 3.5 million followers – on Instagram.
