The Yandex.Music streaming service, at the request of Roskomnadzor, removed the song “Chervona Kalina” (“Oh, Chervona Kalina”) performed by the Ukrainian folk choir named after Grigory Verevka. This is reported by Baza and Meduza with a link to the technical support of the service.
As noted in the press service of Yandex.Music, Roskomnadzor sent the service an official request “to restrict access to this track.” A tech support spokesperson told Baza that the regulator “has sent a notification to all music platforms to restrict access to this track.”
Journalists drew attention to the fact that the song performed by other musicians, such as Alexander Malinin, remains available to Yandex.Music users. In addition, the song was not removed from the VK music service either.
“Chervona Kalina” was written by the Ukrainian poet Stepan Charnetsky in 1914. After the outbreak of the war, the song became a symbol of support for Ukraine. In September, in Bakhchisarai, arrests and fines were imposed on to six participants and organizers of the Crimean Tatar wedding, where they turned on Chervona Kalina – the court considered it “a battle song of the organization of Ukrainian nationalists (OUN)”. Also, the Crimean women who sang this song received a fine of 40 thousand rubles and an arrest for 10 days. -cite__image” alt=”1″ />Fuck the War< p>
