(FreedomBeacon.com)- A 27-year-old Russian rapper, who opposed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, allegedly killed himself by jumping from a high-rise after being drafted to fight in the war, according to TMZ.
Walkie reportedly posted a video where 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.”
“I choose to remain in history forever,” he continued. “As a man who did not support what was happening I am not ready to take up arms and kill my own kind.”
Walkie reportedly served in the Russian Army previously and despised the experience, trying to get a deferment because of mental illness, which was denied by the Russian military.
Putin recently blamed the West for fueling the war in Ukraine, after countries like the U.S. have givens tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine and the U.K. and Germany have sent weapons to aid in the fight. He accused the West of pitting Ukrainians and Russians against one another, who he claims are all the same, in an effort “to condemn them to poverty and extinction.”
After allegedly annexing 15% of Ukraine, including Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, and the self-declared independent People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, Putin announced that any attack on these regions would be considered an attack on Russian soil, further adding tension to his threats that he will use nuclear weapons against anyone who gets involved in the conflict.
The United States and Russia have recently pointed fingers at the other for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipeline after an explosion was reportedly confirmed.
Western leaders pointed fingers at Russian vessels spotted around the location ahead of the incident, but a former Pentagon official, retired U.S. Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, speculated that the act was likely caused by the U.S. Navy and British Royal Navy after they suspected that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was drifting away from the alliance against Russia when he refused to send any more equipment to Ukraine.
