Progressive metal standouts, Jinjer, have spoken out against the newly launched ‘full-scale invasion’ of their native Ukraine by Russia. The band was formed in 2008 in Donetsk, Ukraine.
A statement issued publicly by the band today via social media reads:
“Dear all, as we write this text, for the moment, each member of Jinjer and our families are safe and unhurt. We truly appreciate all our fans around the globe for caring, getting in touch and for all the sympathy and support for our band and more importantly our country. As you all know, early this morning on February 24th, Putin started the war against the sovereign and independent #ukraine ! Please know that in this time we really depend on you, our fans in every country- to support Ukriane and peace in our country however you can- especially our fans in Russia, you and your opinion matter the most at this time. NOTHING can justify the violence and death of innocents, and this is exactly what’s happening in our country right now. Stop the war in Ukraine now!”
