Czechs Disrupt Performance Of Russian Army Choir

Czech and Ukrainian activists demonstrated outside an arena in Prague during a performance by the Alexandrov Ensemble, the official choir of the Russian armed forces. Protesters held signs calling the chorus "the music of war and occupation." Inside the concert hall, a small group of protesters holding Ukrainian, NATO, and EU flags tried to disrupt the show during a guest appearance by Czech pop star Helena Vondrackova, but were quickly escorted out.
