War in Ukraine: "We have become hostages to a madman"a Russian rapper commits suicide to avoid mobi

Home The body of the 27-year-old was found dead in Krasnodar. The rapper rushed out of his apartment after capturing a final video explaining his gesture and denouncing the partial mobilization in Ukraine ordered by Vladimir Putin.

“I’m not willing to kill for any reason, if you see this video I won’t be alive.” Russian rapper Ivan Petunin, stage name Walkie, took his own life in Krasnodar, Russia. The 27-year-old rejected the partial mobilization ordered by Vladimir Putin and did not want to go to Ukraine and fight. “We have become hostages to a madman who gives us the choice between the army and prison,” he confided in a video recorded shortly before his death.

“I can’t commit the sin of murder, I don’t want to kill for ideas,” said Ivan Petunin, who predicted a total mobilization of the Russian population. The British newspaper The Sun reports that the artist has already served in the Russian army but is doing everything possible to avoid mobilization in Ukraine.

The 27-year-old’s body was found near his home in Krasnodar after he fell from the top of the building where he lived. “I chose to go down in history forever as a man who didn’t support what was happening,” he explained in his farewell video. “My apologies to the people I love, but sometimes you have to know how to die for your principles and my final decision is how I will leave.”

This tragedy happened when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on September 21 a “partial mobilization” of the Russians. 300,000 reservists had been called up to fight in Ukraine, where the Kremlin army appeared to be losing ground. The announcement sparked protests, demonstrations and thousands of Russians fleeing abroad.
