Ukrainian metallers JINJER have strongly condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin for authorizing a special military operation into the eastern part of their country on Thursday (February 24).
Earlier today, JINJER shared the following statement via social media: “Dear all, as we write this text, for the moment, each member of JINJER and our families are safe and unhurt.

Earlier today, U.S. President Joe Biden denounced Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine, calling it a premeditated attack and a brutal assault “without provocation, without justification, without necessity.” He also announced new sanctions that include banning what can be exported to Russia. “We have purposely designed these sanctions to maximize a long-term impact on Russia and to minimize impact on the United States and our allies.”
