A Russian rapper opposed to the war in Ukraine reportedly died by suicide after being drafted. Walkie, 27, posted a video that served as a final testimony and suicide note.
He reportedly jumped from a high-rise building to end his life
27-year-old rapper Walkie posted a video in which he said, “If you are watching this video, then I am no longer alive. I can’t take the sin of murder on my soul and I don’t want to. I am not ready to kill for any ideals.”
Walkie went on … “I choose to remain in history forever. As a man who did not support what was happening I am not ready to take up arms and kill my own kind.”
He had already served in the Russian Army, and despised the experience. This time around he tried to get a deferment because of mental illness, but that did not fly with the Russian military.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin announced a draft on Sept. 21, causing hundreds of thousands of Russians to flee the country.
Rest in power Walkie.
