SIMFEROPOL, August 12. /TASS/. American rock singer Joe Lynn Turner, an ex-vocalist of Deep Purple and Rainbow, said he was wearing a ring with the Russian coat of arms as "the truth lives in Russia."

"I’ve been wearing a Russian Federation ring for many years because I know the truth lives here. And I believe right now this time Russia is going to be the great power that it already has been and that good always overcomes evil," Turner told reporters in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea.

He said western media reports about events in Crimea were "none of the truth."

"It’s unbelievable how they influence people’s minds," said Turner who is planning to give concerts in the Crimean cities of Feodosia, Yalta and Sevastopol.

"I am very proud of the people of Crimea," he added. "The people here have their truth and I see what that referendum was about."

Turner said he was not afraid of any sanctions that could follow his concerts in Crimea.

"Warnings, sanctions - this does not apply to music. I play for people, not politics. Politics cannot enslave the human soul. People, especially the Russian people, have incredible strength of spirit throughout history. I believe that God is the truth and the truth lives in Russia," he concluded.

US rock star Joe Lynn Turner plans to move to Belarus

The American rock singer also announced plans to settle in Belarus.

"I am moving to Belarus if [President Alexander] Lukashenko let’s me move," Turner told reporters in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea.

"I have no love anymore for the United States. I don’t like the administration, I don’t like what’s going on, I don’t like the lies to the people. I don’t like anything," he added.

Turner said it was his Russian wife who inspired him to move to Belarus.

"I think I have found a new life and a new home," said Turner who is planning to give concerts in the Crimean cities of Feodosia, Yalta and Sevastopol.
