For these people, freedom is the most important word in the world – so important that Ukrainians are fighting and dying for it. And it’s so important that Alexei Navalny chose to give his up,” Bono said.“Apparently Putin would never, ever say his name,” Bono said. “So I thought tonight, the free people, from here, people who believe in freedom – we must say his name.
