Russian rapper Walkie commits suicide, after being drafted for Ukraine war
Russia has been waging a war in Ukraine for about eight months at this point. However, many feel that President Vladimir Putin is having difficulties and that Ukraine is beginning to cause Russia greater problems.
As a result, Russia recently began a massive mobilisation that included the recruitment of nearly 300,000 soldiers. But many of them, including a local rapper, are staunchly opposed to the war. This is Walkie, real name Ivan Vitalievich Petunin.
According to The Sun, Walkie just committed suicide because he was so opposed to the conflict in Ukraine. Prior to his death, he said in a video that he would rather to be dead than take another man’s life. In the city of Krasnodar, his corpse was discovered next to a tall structure. Along with this catastrophe, Walkie had earlier enrolled in a mental institution in order to escape joining the Russian army.
“If you are watching this video, then I am no longer alive. I can’t take the sin of murder on my soul and I don’t want to. I am not ready to kill for any ideals. I choose to remain in history forever. As a man who did not support what was happening. I am not ready to take up arms and kill my own kind.”
Watch Walkie criticising the conflict in Ukraine before he passed away.
The Note is really haunting and very heartbreaking to see a young rapper like this getting swallowed by the govt. This is very sad and can Puttin stop acting like Hitler now?
