Jinjer bassist checks in to detail the horrors of living in Kyiv right now

Author Jad - 28.2.2022

Jinjer bassist Eugene Abdukhanov has checked in from his home in Kyiv, Ukraine saying he and his bandmates that still live in the country are “relatively safe and okay, as much as it is possible during these dark days.” Abdukhanov added that the current war “cannot be justified by anything” and asks everyone globally to pay attention.

Of course, we wish Abdukhanov and all the Ukranian people are the best. The following is a transcription of Abdukhanov’s video by Blabbermouth:

Hello, the whole world. I’m speaking to you from Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, which is now under the siege of Russian troops. It’s five o’clock in the afternoon [on] Saturday.

First of all, all members of Jinjer who are currently in Kyiv are relatively safe and okay, as much as it is possible during these dark days. Secondly, we appreciate all of our fans worldwide for showing the solidarity with us and our country for opposing the barbarism of war which was started by Putin here in Ukraine on the 24th of February.

I would like to speak to all the people of the civilized world, all our fans, all music fans, all metalheads worldwide, no matter where you’re from, especially if you’re from Russia. This war cannot be justified by anything, no matter what propaganda says. No one deserves what we are going through now here in Ukraine.

The innocent people of Ukraine are suffering. I’m not talking about politicians; I’m not talking about our government. The innocent people of our country are suffering… All the people of Kyiv are spending their days and nights in the shelters in basements. Children are spending their days and nights in the shelters. They are scared. They don’t have proper food. They don’t have enough water. They don’t have any comfort. Do they deserve this?
