ШЩЦ – Support Ukraine!Unser Mix der Woche

MdW Support Ukraine

Mixe gibt es wie Sand am Meer. Einige sind großartig. Dieser hier ist aus der Ukraine für die Ukraine.

Die Mitteilung des ukrainischen Labels ШЩЦ zu ihrem Support-Mix in ganzer Länge:

It’s a mix of Ukrainian music to help people who are in a bomb shelter now, for our friends who are in civil defense, and for brave Ukrainian soldiers. We are musicians and volunteers. There is a website where people can donate to support Ukrainian volunteers and the army: Stand for Ukraine

If you have PayPal only you can donate on our Bandcamp page and we will send money to ukrainian volunteers.

Also, there is an official news channel with online updates: Pravda

The main goal of this mix it's to spread the word about the war that Russia brought for Ukraine, to show how people from the whole world can help, and to show links with true information. Russians kill civil people in Ukraine, bombing houses and spreading propaganda. Together we can stop them. Now are contacted a few radiostations around the world who will broadcast this mix.

ШЩЦ is a label of friends. We made a compilation a couple years ago with 20 ukrainian electronic musicians and all of us now fight against Russia.

Russia for almost thousand years try to kill Ukraine, our language, people and identity. Russian propaganda says that Ukrainians and Russians is a one nation (or Russians is a big brother of Ukrainians) but it isn't true. Our history, language, anthropology – is different. It's a fact.Russian appetites to capture Ukraine started from Mongolian invasion of Kyivan Rus' in the beginning of XIII century. East-North principalities of Kyivan Rus' (now West Russia) surrendered and paid tribute to Mongol Empire, then they start to assimilate with mongols. But rest of Kyivan Rus' (where Ukraine now) was in fight. Kyiv was burned by Mongols in 1240 and all Kyivan Rus' fell apart and was in total ruin. In that time Moscow principality became stronger and stronger and they captured independent Kyiv a few times (because Kyiv was a nominal capital of Kyivan Rus') in a hope to annex it to their country and to proclaim a new Kyivan Rus'.

Then Lithuanian knights come to Kyiv and gave protection for Kyiv and Ukraine. After, Poland became stronger and assimilated with Lithuania so Ukraine became part of Poland Empire. Poles started to exploit Ukrainian peasants so why the Cossacks appeared. It was free people who fought against exploitation and to the independence of Ukraine. This fight outgrow in a Ukrainian National Revolution (1648-1676) in which all Ukrainians took part. Bohdan Khmelnytskiy was the leader of this revolution and he was forced to seek protection from Moscow. But Moscow violated the contract and annexed Ukraine into Russian Empire. They putted a puppet regime for three hundred years, destroyed cossacks and even burned and changed historical chronicles about Ukraine.

In the beginning of XX century Russia Empire fell apart and Ukraine proclaimed independence. Unfortunately for a few years because a new communist regime of Russia invaded Kyiv again. They declared that Ukrainians wanted to join Soviet Union and communist ideology, but it was untrue. After that they shot away all intelligentsia, writes, musicians, painters who stood for independent Ukraine. Also they made a Holodomor ('to kill by starvation' Great Famine) for two years in Ukraine villages to force people to join Soviet Union. Around 5 millions people died of starvation!

And now after Soviet Union fell apart Russians all time try to destabilize Ukraine, try to to put puppet regimes, try to rebuild Soviet Union, and after Maidan (which was stand for European independent Ukraine) they start a war with us again. Russia and Putin can't accept rich and successful Ukraine, because it shows to Russians that democracy and freedom is much better than autocratic regime. This is war between democratic Ukraine which shares values of human rights and freedom against autocratic military Russia. It is the war between good and evil. And good will win! Because we defend our home and families.
