The propagandist Channel One cynically sang "Plyve Kacha" as a high-rise building burned in Odesa and Ukrainians hid from UAVs
On New Year's Eve, when an apartment building was burning in Odesa as a result of a Russian drone strike, the pro-government Channel One in Russia played the song "Plyve Kacha", which was covered in his own way by rapper Akim Apachev from the now-occupied Mariupol. In it, the Putinist sang the praises of Russian terrorism in Ukrainian and called Ukrainian soldiers "demons."
This bacchanalia took place as dozens of UAVs flew over Ukraine, and Ukrainians interrupted the celebration to move to safety. According to propagandists, the artist was invited to "condemn the actions of the authorities" on behalf of Ukrainians.
"Ukrainian rapper Akim Apachev performed the song 'Plyve Kacha' in Ukrainian on Channel One's New Year's Eve broadcast. It is noted that Apachev performed together with singer Daria Frey. The lyrical hero of the song condemns the actions of the Ukrainian authorities," the Russian media described the propaganda show.
As a reminder, the set of words that Apachev called a song was first performed in the summer of 2022. This "hit" became famous in Russia only because the artist was invited to Z-events with it.
The Kremlin is using a collaborator to justify its atrocities in Ukraine. The propagandists emphasize every time that "the Ukrainian condemns the actions of the Armed Forces and the government," but the only thing Ukrainian about the artist is his place of birth.
For many years now, he has been faithfully working for Russian propaganda, supporting the war and genocide of Ukrainians. Even his track, which the native of Mariupol sings everywhere, he could not write without mistakes in Ukrainian words.
According to folklorist Ivan Khlanta, the Ukrainian song "Plyve Kacha po Tysyne" was recorded in the 1940s in the village of Volovets, Zakarpattia region. It is believed to have been written in that region.
The wistful composition belonged to the repertoire of the UPA soldiers, and in our time it became widely known after it was performed during the requiem for the fallen participants of the Revolution of Dignity. Nine years ago, it became the unofficial anthem of the Euromaidan.
As OBOZ.UA wrote earlier, the famous saxophonist Andriy Stepanov from Odesa made a cynical act on the eve of Russia's largest air attack on Ukraine. He decided to play a song by a Russian band.
