The number of those wanting to support the well-known music critic Artemy Troitsky in his fight with the ‘Government Bulldozer’ turned out to be more than could fit into the capital’s nightclub HLEB. Among the very various people at the concert were Andrei Bilzho, Valeriya Gai Germanika, Boris Nemtsov and Oleg Mitvol. Evgeniya Chirikova demonstrated her singing abilities. Those taking part in the concert included Yury Shevchuk, the group Barto and Vasya Oblomov. The producer Vasily Shumov who organized the concert, plans to put out an album Helping Troitsky. The management of the club was put under extreme pressure not to allow the concert to go ahead – someone ‘up above’ does not like the idea of solidarity with Artemy Troitsky very much.
