Our roots say about ancient cultures and civilizations. The country, which had of the Scythians, Sarmatians, Tripoli, Sumer, and we have with Egypt to compete every day in the domain”, — said the singer.
“”Bloomers” is a relative term, not literally, when we don’t know their authentic culture and use pseudo-folk creativity, which we just replaced. Replaced those songs that wrote, those movements that have imposed,” — said Ruslan.
