The Czech capital saw an extended protest against the two concerts of the Russian army choir last weekend (17/18 October). The choir propagates itself as “singing weapon” and among others “celebrates” Russia’s army occupying Crimea with the song “polite people“. The happening before the concert hall included the playing of the song “rusky šváb” (a critique of the Czech president being a big friend of Russia), and the presentation of a 12m poster of “Putler” under the motto of “occupants play for collaborants” and “Russia Hands-off Ukraine”. It was also a protest against the Czech collaborators Lucie Bílá, Karel Gott (who sung in former times with the choir and this time “only” visited) and Helena Vondráčková – The activists waved with NATO, EU and Ukrainian flags during the appearance of Vondráčková with the Russian choir. It was the first time since 1928 that an event of the formation had been disturbed in such a way.
