In a way of giving Vladimir Putin the one finger salute, the opera house in Odessa, Ukraine has reopened.
The Odessa Opera Theatre, which was built in 1810, resumed performances over the weekend beginning with an impassioned rendering of the Ukrainian national anthem. Management said that after 115 days of silence, caused by Vladimir Putin’s invasion, it’s important to demonstrate that they’re still able to perform.
The Mayor of Odessa added, it’s important to show that Odessa is alive, that Ukraine is alive and he suggested that if Putin dared to strike the opera, the hatred he would face throughout the world would be unimaginable.
