Zelensky Booed at Rod Stewart Concert in Budapest
UK pop singer Rod Stewart drew boos and whistles from the crowd when he dedicated a song to Ukraine and its president, Volodymyr Zelensky at his concert at the MVM Dome on Saturday evening.

Stewart was clad in blue and yellow, and he showed photographs of Ukrainian soldiers and destroyed Ukrainian towns on a screen during the concert.

The picture of Zelensky provoked a negative response from a large part of the audience.

However, the audience received the next number with enthusiastic ovation as if nothing had happened.

Same happened earlier in Germany

Sir Rod has since released a statement, saying, ‘I do support Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine, and I will continue to do so. Putin must be stopped.’
