Ukrainian performers such as Okean Elzy, The Hardkiss, Yaktak, Sadsvit, Alyona Alyona, Vladimir Dantes, Kola, Lyapis 98 and others are supposed to perform at the festival.
In the capital of Poland, Warsaw, on August 26, a music festival called Easy Busy Fest was supposed to take place. Ukrainian artists should perform there. However, due to the sponsorship of the owners of a network of outlets specializing in the sale of goods from the Russian Federation, the event was canceled. This was reported by the Polish-Ukrainian public figure, head of the Ukrainian diaspora in Poland Natalia Panchenko.
“I was wondering who is organizing this festival, I scrolled further and I was stunned. Because I didn’t find any information about the festival organizer on the site, and the sponsors of this event are MixMerkt and Monolith . Both brands belong to the same owners. People from Russia and It seems to be in Kazakhstan, who registered a business in Germany and is known for having a network of Russian stores in Europe, which in the year it came to Poland,” wrote Panchenko.
In the press releases issued by the organizers, it was noted that their outlets specialize in providing a variety of Ukrainian and Eastern European goods. But later it turned out that some of the goods in their assortment were actually imported from Russia.
In addition, there are products made in Germany under recipes and under brands associated with Russia.
“On the Polish site, they deliberately mislead consumers. They specially publish Ukrainian brands there, although on the main German site, most of them are Russian, Ukrainian, 10 percent, and then if there is they buy Russian products from Russia, so they support the Russian economy, and then they sell these goods to Europe, calling them “Eastern European”. Even after a full scale invasion. Even despite the sanctions,” Panchenko added.
Ukrainian performers, having learned these details, began to refuse to participate in the festival, which is why the organizers finally canceled it.
