Russia’s Top Rock Band Understands Revolution More than Politicians

Spread the love

Makarevich Andrey Vadimovich

Andrey Vadimovich Makarevich, founder of the Russia’s oldest active rock band Mashina Vremeni (Time Machine), has released a statement on YouTube.

I’m very concerned about what is happening in Ukraine. But I’m much more concerned about what’s happening on that account in my own country.

I cannot rid myself of the feeling that our authorities perceive the country and its people as nothing more than things for them to control.

However, if a ruler does not listen to its people, and at the same time uses force against it, the people will overthrow him. What happened in Ukraine is typical of a revolution, and for all my lack of love of revolutions, I cannot say that this was unjust.
