Russian rapper commits suicide

Deadly despair after Putin’s partial mobilization. To avoid being drafted, Russian rapper Ivan Petunin committed suicide.

Petunin jumped from the 10th floor of a skyscraper in his hometown of Krasnodar, in southern Russia, not far from the Georgian border. This is reported by the Russian website “Star Hit”.

The 27-year-old, who called himself Walkie T as a rapper, left a farewell video on his Telegram channel.

It says: “If you see the video, I’m not alive anymore. I can’t burden my soul with the sin of murder. I’m not ready to fight for any ideal.”

A little later, Petunin’s farewell letter to his girlfriend Elya appeared on the Internet.

“Dear cat, there was no way out… I did everything to make you as happy as possible. But the dark time has come. And I hope you get over it. Always remember that I love you. Keep the memory of me A man It has only one name and I will not tarnish it. I want people to remember that I lived by my conscience and died by my principles.”

Krasnodar Police confirmed the death but declined to provide further details. Walkie T started making music as a teenager. His videos have had up to six million views.

► Since the despot Vladimir Putin (69) proclaimed his partial mobilization, thousands of men have fled the country, burned officials whose names are listed and one even set himself on fire.

And while yesterday the dictator celebrated the illegal annexation of four occupied Ukrainian territories with great fanfare, today, just a day later, the Ukrainian army has surrounded thousands of Russian soldiers near Lyman and hoisted the Ukrainian flag in the city. It is Putin’s most bitter defeat to date.
