Lyapis Trubetskoy’s concert cancelled in Pskov
Lyapis Trubetskoy had to present their new album Matryoshka in Pskov on March 1, Interfax reports.
The local affiliate of the Communist Party of Russia had earlier urged to boycott and cancel the Belarusian band’s concert. The communists explained it by the fact that the band's frontman Siarhei Mikhalok ‘had supported the coup in Ukraine’ at Euromaidan.
They mentioned the band’s new album Matryoshka. The album ‘presents Russia in a bad way with its Russian language and Soviet leaders’, the communists insist.
