Repressions against musicians because of the war in Ukraine began in Russia: 7 police cars detained rockers in Tambov
Russian musicians in Tambov felt the repression of the Putin regime. Seven police cars showed up at a concert of local rockers and detained them, explaining that during the war in Ukraine, which was cynically called a "special operation," performances were allegedly prohibited.
Later it turned out that all public events in Tambov, which is almost 500 kilometers away from Ukraine, had to be coordinated. The Russian propagandists said so (please scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).
The video from the scene shows that the police took away the microphone from the musicians and asked everyone to disperse, because "during the special operation you cannot hold unsanctioned concerts". In response, the Russians sent the law enforcement officers away and refused to leave the concert. "Go to hell," was heard in the crowd.
According to eyewitnesses, seven police cars drove up to them and then mass detentions began. Train Brain, Milord and Klinopis took part in the concert.
The city authorities quickly denied the incident, saying that they knew nothing about the detention, and that they should have been warned about the performance in advance.
As you know, repressions against public figures have so far only concerned artists who have publicly supported Ukraine and condemned the Putin regime. They were recently ridiculed by the Russian comedian Maxim Galkin.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, Russia compiled a "black list" of so-called "infotsigan" accused of money laundering and non-payment of taxes. In total, the list already includes 32 suspects. Among them is a native of Ukraine Regina Todorenko.
