"War is not over. Stop war in Ukraine. Stop wars worldwide. No one deserves war."

Not all heroes wear capes – The Russian group, Little Big, who were set to represent their country Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with their song “UNO” have released an anti-war anthem following the war in Ukraine. Moreover, in the released music video, the band criticizes the propaganda pushed on Russian state television and makes references to political leaders and the Russian army. The band is no longer in Russia and left before the release.

“War is not over. Stop war in Ukraine. Stop wars worldwide. No one deserves war.”

One of the biggest Russian acts, Little Big, released their anti-war song “GENERATION CANCELLATION” following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The song and music video express anger at the war in Ukraine, and the propaganda pushed on Russian state TV which justifies the aggression. The video also makes references to political leaders and the Russian army.

Little Big’s Ilya Prusikin said to Newsweek: “We adore our country, but we completely disagree with the war in Ukraine, moreover, we believe that any war is unacceptable. We condemn the actions of the Russian government, and we are so disgusted by the Russian military propaganda machine that we decided to drop everything and leave the country,”

The band was set to represent Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with their song “Uno“. The song was one of the big favorites to win prior to the cancellation of the contest and holds the record for the most views for any video on the official Eurovision YouTube Channel with over 243 million views.

You can watch the music video for “GENERATION CANCELLATION” below:

The band is now based in Los Angeles, news outlet Meduza reported, although it is not clear how long they have been there for.

Hey, I'm Dominik from Germany. Watched my first Eurovision in 2003 and I was in love right away! Attended my first contest in 2011 and every contest since 2013. The same happened with Melodifestivalen. Started watching in 2006 and been to every final since 2017 and try to make it to at least one heat each year, too. After all, Melodifestivalen is the real deal ♥

  1. I was invited by Alina Pasok, Ilia Prusikin and team to portray the “fake news” anchorman in the latest music video by Little Big. “Generation Cancellation” is a profound and sentimental anti-war crusade. The anchorman is sh*tting propaganda into the minds of citizens. Only by watching the music video will you fully understand the genius of Little Big’s vision. Little Big applies metaphors in extraordinary ways to shock the conscience and bring clarity to gravely important social issues such as the Russo-Ukranian War. My greatest problems in life pale by comparison to the human pain and suffering going on in Ukraine. Americans won the lottery just to be born here and not have to cope with such atrocities.
    From the moment I walked onto the set of “Generation Cancellation”, I realized that everyone involved with Little Big is deeply dedicated to bring forward a message of concern and call for resolution and peace.
    I am honored to have been asked to work with Little Big and their team. I was naked from the waist down and wore a little patch to cover my jewels. The costume assistant Ksenia Sharonova assisted me with my outfit and whispered to me just before the first take, “You’ll be remembering this for a very long time!” I’m not shy about my body, I was in the Navy and we had zero privacy. With hope, things will resolve and the world will come together in peace. I have committed 10% of my time and 10% of my money to helping people in need. I hope others will make a similar commitment.
    There is no justification for the death of the innocent and I celebrate Little Big and their message with “Generation Cancellation.”
