Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Incredibly incredibly talented Valentina Lisitsa. A Ukrainian born concert pianist and a very nice person, (according to her fans). Artists can see the picture before it is painted, and mathematicians can feel the answer when working on equations. Musicians, musicians have their own special brand of uniqueness where they use timing, and their knowledge of human emotions, to create beautiful music.
Valentina Lisitsa was scheduled to perform the Rachmaninoff Concerto #2 with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, but Ukrainian internet trolls wanted revenge for Valentina expressing her opinions on Kiev. They pretended to be more insulted than they actually were by claiming that Valentina’s tweets were having a destructive effect on the drive to promote Kiev’s failing government.
NedoUkrainka is a play on Ukraine’s prime minister’s words early in 2014 where he described the Russian speaking citizens of Ukraine as ‘sub-humans.’ Nedo meaning sub, and Ukrainka meaning Ukrainian. It was a familiar term used in Nazi propaganda at the height of WW2 against Jews, Poles, Blacks, homosexuals, and enemies of Nazi Germany. Valentina is Ukrainian herself, but it is not a big surprise that Kiev would so quickly turn against their own.
We’ve seen this happen to even their own police officers in Ukraine.
The law officer said that pro-Ukrainian servicemen were left there in chaos, disoriented, without any commands arriving from Kiev. When the pro-independence fighters eventually took over their town, the generals betrayed them by accusing them of sympathizing with the eastern independence supporters.
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra, intimidated by threats and insults, sided with the trolls and cancelled Lisitsa’s performance. They offered to pay her compensation to keep quiet. Little did the managers at TSO know that nobody likes Kiev. Lisitsa went to her fans and told them her story:
Music can’t be silenced. We love Valentina.
