Sir Elton John dedicated a song to Ukraine during his latest concert in America.
Following this concert, the performer also played at Prudential Center, New Jersey on Friday night.
During the concert, he addressed the crowd and said that he would like to take a moment to dedicate one of his songs to Ukraine.
The song in question was ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’.
Sir Elton went on to talk about Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, and said “some people are appalling aren’t they, absolutely appalling. There is no justification for this. Little b*****, I hate him, here we go.”
This isn’t the first time the singer has called out Vladimir Putin.
In 2015, he said that he was “deeply upset” by the president’s interview with the Financial Times where he said that liberalism should not overshadow traditionalism.
Elton shared an open letter to Putin in which he said: “Dear President Putin, I was deeply upset when I read your recent interview in the Financial Times.
“I strongly disagree with your view that pursuing policies that embrace multicultural and sexual diversity are obsolete in our societies.
“I find duplicity in your comment that you want LGBT people to ‘be happy’ and that ‘we have no problem in that’.”
