In a conversation with the host, Vakarchuk also admitted how he lives after the death of a loved one.
“I live in memory, I live in memories, I live in his energy. I communicate with him sometimes as if he is near. But remembering the past:” That's how good it was when he was, and how bad it is now when he is not there, ” it is meaningless. As an analytical person, he would never have supported this, “Svyatoslav says.
He added that he tries to live so that his father is proud of him. “The death of my father gave me a mission: I constantly want him to be proud of me, so that he could see from the sky and think that it was not in vain that he raised and raised his son. This is what I will carry until the end of my life,” Vakarchuk shared.
We recently wrote that singer Max Barskikh shocked him with a story about his father and a difficult childhood.
