“My friend and I are not afraid. We live together in a tall building. The building is empty. We have been playing loud music all day and night to annoy Russian soldiers outside. Here is a few American songs you might know.

•Russia’s g*y’ by Rucka Ali
•Wrecking Ball
•Photograph by Nickelback
•Stroke Me
•I will survive by whoever that lady that sings it is
•Lion King Circle of life
•Team America song
•Many many more

They tell us to keep it down and we tell back ‘sorry we will make a quieter war since you are trying to sleep’
F*ck those guys.”
– Ukrainian Civilian. Invasion of Ukraine. February 26th, 2022.
