Sting Sings His Classic Song “Russians” to Raise Funds for the “Brave Ukrainians Fighting Against This Brutal Tyranny”


Sting has released a video singing his classic, “Russians.” It’s all over social media. Sting (and Trudie Styler) is one of the most charitable and philanthropic of all musicians. Information is below on how to donate money or services.

Sting says:
“I’ve only rarely sung this song in the many years since it was written, because I never thought it would be relevant again. But, in the light of one man’s bloody and woefully misguided decision to invade a peaceful, unthreatening neighbor, the song is, once again, a plea for our common humanity. For the brave Ukrainians fighting against this brutal tyranny and also the many Russians who are protesting this outrage despite the threat of arrest and imprisonment – We, all of us, love our children. Stop the war.

Supplies shipped to this warehouse in Poland are delivered in coordination with the Armed Forces of Ukraine and are guaranteed to go to people most in need.”
