On Sunday, March 13th, Alisher Tagirovich Morgenshtern, who performs simply as Morgenshtern, released a new protest song oppofing Putin’s invasion into Ukraine.
The is not the first time (nor is it likely to be the last) the 24 year old rapper gets into dangerous territory because of his criticism against his own government.
The song ends with an audio message from the mother of his Ukrainian producer who talks about life surviving Russian airstrikes. The video ends with the message: “We want peace. We want friendship.”
Let’s all help bring Morgenshtern’s message of peace to people around the world. Please share.
