Equally, in A Rolling stone In an interview a couple of months earlier, Waters stated he was “on a kill list that is supported by the Ukrainian government.”

“Russian diplomacy was critical. what subsequent? Mr. Bean?” stated an unnamed diplomat on the UN Security Council.
This comes on the heels of author Polly Samson calling Waters “antisemitic to your rotten core” and “a Putin apologist”: “Sadly @rogerwaters you might be antisemitic to your rotten core. Additionally A Putin supporter and a liar, thief, hypocrite, tax evader, lip-synching, anti-woman, sick-to-be-envious, megalomaniac. Sufficient of your bullshit.
