Roger Waters, 78, caused controversy by appointing the current president of the United States, Joe Biden79, at the War Criminals Gallery.
And the musician published a photo of the politician during the “This is not a maneuver” tour, along with many questionable figures in international politics, such as the former president. Donald Trump76.
In an interview with CNN, Waters explained why he put Biden on his controversial list.
“It’s fueling the fire in Ukraine at first. It’s a major crime. Why doesn’t the United States encourage the Ukrainian president to negotiate, avoiding the need for this terrible war?” he asked.
“When does the war start? You need to look at history and be able to say, ‘Okay, this day started right here.’” “Can you say it started in 2008? They promised they wouldn’t when Mikhail Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the Union from all of Eastern Europe with the Soviet Union.”
