Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters laughs off being placed on Kiev regime’s blacklist

The musician said that for him it was just a waste of breath by propagandists

WASHINGTON, August 23. /TASS/. Roger Waters, one of the founders of the British rock band Pink Floyd, shrugged off getting blackballed by Ukraine’s notorious website Mirotvorets (Peacemaker).

On Monday, Waters was put on the doxing site’s notorious list over his comments on Crimea.

According to a statement on the website, its administrators interpreted the musician’s remarks about Crimea as "an attack on the territorial integrity of Ukraine."

"I don't feel very much about it at all. It's just a waste of breath by propagandists. There, that's their job. They're told to sit and write this nonsense about me because it's part of their job," he said in an interview with TASS.

"I can't take any of it seriously," the musician added.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in Ukraine in response to a request from the leaders of the Donbass republics for help. After that, the US, the EU, the UK, as well as a number of other states imposed sweeping sanctions against Russia and beefed up arms supplies to the Ukrainian authorities.
