Managers of rapper Husky accuse Rostov law enforcers of attempting to disrupt concert
On November 20, law enforcers restricted visitors' entry to the concert of rapper Husky in Rostov-on-Don, and the performance itself had to be conducted without musical accompaniment, reported agents of rapper Husky.
In the evening on November 20, in Rostov, the performance of rapper Dmitry Kuznetsov, also known as Husky, was held at the "Rave" club without a microphone and music after the intervention of law enforcers, reported Andrei Orekhov, a manager of the rapper.
"Some people managed to enter the club. Then [the law enforcers] came and stopped letting visitors in. They didn't explain anything to us ... Then we went on the stage and realized that they did not give us a chance to turn on the general sound in the hall," the "Kommersant-South" quotes today Andrei Orekhov as saying.
According to the agents of rapper Husky, before the concert, two law enforcers and several people in civilian clothes came to the venue. They demanded to sign a warning, which equated the concert to a sanctioned street action, the "Dozhd" (Rain) TV Channel reported on its website on November 20.
The "Dozhd" TV Channel also reported that after the agent of rapper Husky had signed the warning, the director of the concert hall demanded from the musicians to leave the venue, and after their refusal, the people in civilian clothes warned them that drugs could be planted on members of the band.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) has declared that the policemen did not interfere with the concert.
