5. It truly is. Regardless of anyone's opinion of Russia's

politics and actions the Red Army Choir is a phenomenally talented musical group. This is a terrible loss.

6. Exactly.

From the NYT article:
Founded in the Soviet era, the Alexandrov Ensemble, which had performed in Syria earlier this year, is the official band of the Russian armed forces. It consists of an orchestra, choir and a dance ensemble and is one of the two Russian orchestras allowed to use the title “Red Army Choir.”

The ensemble was founded by Aleksandr V. Aleksandrov, a prominent Soviet composer and author of the music of the Russian anthem, and his grandson Yevgeny told Meduza, a Russian news website, that “the best members of the ensemble died.”

“All the best soloists, the whole choir,” he said. “Everything will collapse now, the best ones are gone.”

10. These talented people were the treasure of Russia

I hope it wasn't because they were put on a shitty plane that had no business being in the air.
