Gallagher said: “What I find fascinating is that the United Nations are sitting on their hands and no one has said a fucking thing about it. What on earth was that assembly set up for, if not for things like this? It’s a disgrace that the United Nations have not even called an assembly to ask, ‘What is the world’s reaction to this?’ I think this is going to break up the European Union. And the only person that’s going to benefit from that is Putin. He wants to break up the European Union so he can get the Soviet Union back together. That’s what’s going to happen”.

Before Noel Gallagher others musicians talked about the crisis: Bob Geldof offered to take in four families immediately while U2’s Bono said that “Europe will be no more” if the crisis is not dealt with properly.
