Ukraine’s JINJER Plays First Concert Since Russia’s Invasion Of Their Country (Video)

Jinjer Live 2022

Ukrainian band JINJER played their first live show since Russia’s invasion of their home country this past Friday (June 10) at this year’s edition of the Greenfield Festival, which was held in Interlaken, Switzerland. Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be seen below.

Last week, JINJER announced that with the support of the Ukrainian Ministry Of Culture, they have been granted a special exemption to exit Ukraine in order to help their countrymen the best way they can — through music. This also means that JINJER’s upcoming EU festival appearances this summer are confirmed!

JINJER bassist Eugene commented: “We are very honored to announce that together with the help of the Ukrainian Ministry Of Culture, we have successfully been granted permission to travel abroad as ambassadors of our country to raise funds and awareness about the war raging back home. This is a huge honor for us as a band and as citizens. We will do our part to make sure that this war stops as soon as possible! Come support, dance and scream your hearts out for Ukraine!”
