The Folk Punk band from call themselves “ambassadors of free Ukraine” and punctuated concerts with cries of “Stop Putin!” and “No war!”

They are currently donating proceeds from their shows to the Ukrainian army.

“We believe in international support, and most of all, in the Ukrainian army,” the band said in a statement. It is clear that in such circumstances we are cancelling the upcoming concerts in Ukraine, but hoping to play them in the near future. But we will play concerts throughout the world to support Ukraine and rise money. We will win! Glory to Ukraine!”

The quartet were one of several acts added to the Glastonbury line-up, as the festival revealed its full programme for 2022.
