Russian musicians speaking out against the war face concert cancellations
St Petersburg news outlet Fontanka compiled a list of concerts that have been cancelled across since the start of the war in Ukraine. The cancellations affect artists that have publicly spoken out against the war and called for peace. Several groups, such as the bands Aquarium, Mumiy Troll, and Tequilajazzz, decided to suspend their public performances altogether for as long as the war continues.
