Russia celebrity party – level 1

03-01-2024 07:00

There is a big party in Russia. Famous people are at the party. They wear very few clothes.

This creates problems. A rapper goes to jail for 15 days. He wears only a sock. Companies stop working with famous people. Even President Putin does not like it. The party happens during the war in Ukraine. Many people do not think that partying is right. A woman organizes the party. Now, she is in trouble with taxes. She may have to pay a lot of money.

Some people say that the party is bad because soldiers are fighting. It is a hard time for many people.

Difficult words: partying (going to a party and having fun), organize (to plan an event), tax (money which people and companies pay to the state).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are the potential consequences for the woman who organized the party, and how do some people view the timing of the party in relation to the ongoing war in Ukraine?
