A prominent Russian rapper has taken to social media to speak out against the invasion of his country.
Miron Yanovich Fyodorov, (aka Oxxxymiron) has said he is planning a series of concerts to raise funds for the beleaguered country.
“What’s up everyone, once again it’s Oxxxymiron. Today my nose is red with cold, I’m happy but very angry. I’m angry because it’s still screwed up, because the war in Ukraine has been going on for more than two weeks,” he said in an Instagram video on Friday.
“There are tens of millions of Russians who categorically disagree with this war and I think that should be said as loudly as possible. And so I announce a series of my charity concerts called Russians Against War, RAW for short.
Russia implemented a harsh crackdown on dissent and protests against the war, which Oxxxymiron says forced him to take the concert overseas.
“I will give the first of these concerts on March 15 in Istanbul, Turkey, where there are currently a large number of Russians. There will also be a live stream of the show on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitch.
