The Belarusian musician supports protesting Ukrainians.
“They want stability. They want everything to be like yesterday. They want tomorrow and the after tomorrow to be yesterday. If someone violates the usual order, he is an enemy. He wants to take away and violate. He can and must be killed. For infringing on conveniences. On low-paid jobs. On a squabbling family. On going to the sauna with drunken friends once a month.
On sacred things.
The matter is not the attempt of infringing. They think all should live in this way. In the way they live. In eternal yesterday. In a warm stinky sleepy swamp... Don't show off, because why do you need it?
Hold on, Brothers and Sisters! Be brave! They won't win! Glory to Ukraine!” the musician wrote on Facebook.
Protests in Ukraine have been continuing for more than two months. The most serious clashes between protesters and the police took place on January 22. The special forces and the police started a brutal operation in Kyiv's Hrushevsky Street. The police attacked the barricades. Gunshots were heard during the attack. The police approached the buses, which were burnt two days ago. Videos showed protesters trying to escape and policemen catching and beating them.
At least three people are reported to have died in clashes. Two demonstrators, among them Belarusian activist Mikhail Zhyzneuski, were shot by the police. Another protester died at hospital after falling from the top of the stadium.
