Last month, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider provided his approval for the Ukrainian people to use the band’s hit song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as a “battlecry.” In a recent update via Snider’s Instagram account, the Twisted Sister frontman is now striving to rally the masses to spread awareness of what is taking place in Ukraine.

Early in the morning of February 24th, Russia launched an invasion against Ukraine. At this time, the conflict in Ukraine is still ongoing.

Initially, Snider had tweet’d out his approval of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” via the following tweet:

When a Twitter user said that Russia wasn’t to blame, but Russian president Vladimir Putin, Dee Snider replied with the following tweet:

Just a couple days ago, Snider took to his Instagram account, posting a video in order to engage with audiences and further discuss the invasion taking place in Ukraine. Via the caption associated with Snider’s video, he wrote:

“THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT VIDEO MESSAGE I HAVE EVER POSTED! Please watch it in its entirety, share it and act on it immediately!! The Ukraine needs our help NOW! #STANDWITHUKRAINE”

In the video, the Twisted Sister frontman talks about how he was “stunned” by the international response to his approval of “We’re Not Gonna Take It;” he goes on to add how the Russian people have been “cut off” by the rest of the world, and that they “do not know what their dictator leader is doing to the Ukraine.” This leads him to bringing up a special streaming event; the purpose of this event is to spread awareness to the Russian people regarding what is happening in Ukraine.

In Snider’s words:

“People are dying. And this is a threat not just to the Ukraine; this is a threat to the entire free world. As a result of that, a movement has started. is not only looking to set up an international live streaming concert event, they’re looking to get the message, the word to the Russian people who have been cut off from the rest of the world.”
