On September 2, the long-awaited concert of musician Max Korzh took place in Riga (Latvia). The Belarusian singer, popular among young people, dropped out of touring for several years – at first Covid was an obstacle, and then Korzh spoke out against the war and declared that he could not sing about “Zhit’ V Kaif” (Life Is Good) – that was the name of one of his famous albums – when the lives every day are taken away. About 35 thousand spectators gathered at the Daugava stadium. The concert ended on a minor note – with an anti-war song with the words “He is right who protects his home”.
On August 27, in the center of Chișinău on the Square of the Great National Assembly (Romanian: Piața Marii Adunări Naționale) was held the Independence Day of the Republic of Moldova (celebrated since 1991). 32 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people gathered at the same place and declared Moldova an independent state.
