- We have already visited Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities many times. Every time there are a lot of impressions from your beautiful country and people - and the most positive. The Russian audience is distinguished by incredible passion, energy, and I really consider it one of the best in the whole world. Therefore, it is with great joy that we return to Russia again and again. For us, this is a very special place, which gives many unforgettable moments every time, - said Jared Leto in TASS interview... - In fact, I am sure that Russia and America have a lot in common. Politics aside, we are practically the same. People here and there want a good life, happiness, follow their dreams. Work hard, achieve something, make families and friends. I would very much like Russia and America to leave behind conflicts and politics, forget about differences and walk hand in hand into the future. After all, we really have a lot in common. We do not have any global differences even in culture. But what we can share with each other is really a lot. Russia for me was and remains a very special, wonderful place. And people in America love Russia. Many people perceive your country as I do. I believe that there are no problems between the Russian and American peoples. The only stumbling block remains political issues. I think we should have learned a lot from each other. I admire your culture, history, art, literature and cinema. And most importantly - amazing and very kind people. There is a lot of love in my heart for Russia. And I hope that the political difficulties will sooner or later be left behind.
