Vasyl Kozar, a Transcarpathian, directed the ice show by figure skater Tatyana Navka, wife of Vladimir Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov, to stolen Ukrainian music
Ukrainian director Oleh Bondarchuk reported this on his Telegram channel.
From December 22 to January 7, Moscow hosted an ice show called Evenings on a Farm by Tatyana Navka, a native of Dnipro, a Russian figure skater who is the wife of Vladimir Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov. The show was set in the Poltava region, which Russians called "the south of Russia," and in the performance, Russians used the legendary Shchedryk by Mykola Leontovych and songs by Khrystyna Soloviy, which they translated into Russian.
It turned out that the choreographer of this performance was Vasyl Kozar, a native of Mukachevo. The Ukrainian choreographer became popular after winning the Ukrainian show Strictly Come Dancing 4 in 2012, and later founded Kozar Dance Theater, collaborating with Ukrainian singer Alloise. Kozar Dance Theater dancers participated in the VIDLIK video by ONUKA, Kozar himself once worked for 1+1 TV channel as the chief choreographer of Dancing with the Stars, directed one of Tina Karol's concerts, staged Miss Ukraine 2017, and was the face of the Ukrainian brand Fredinskaya Jewelry.
Earlier it was reported that figure skater Tatyana Navka, wife of Vladimir Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov, presented an ice show in Moscow based on a story by Nikolai Gogol, using Ukrainian music. Tatyana Navka is a native of Dnipro. The figure skater actively supports Russia's war against Ukraine, and she does not hide the fact that the show is an element of propaganda, as she emphasizes that Ukraine is the south of Russia and considers Ukrainian culture to be part of diverse Russian culture.
Subsequently, Ukrainian singer Khrystyna Soloviy announced that she intends to sue Tatyana Navka for copyright infringement.
