Roger Waters named on far-right Ukrainian hit list

“The Kiev-based website Myrotvorets has accused musician Roger Waters, a founding member of rock group Pink Floyd, of “anti-Ukrainian” offenses. These alleged offenses include spreading “anti-Ukrainian propaganda,” collaborating in efforts to legalize Russia’s annexation of Crimea and challenging Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

The site became infamous when several people that it had singled out were murdered.

In an indication of its thoroughly foul and reactionary character, Myrotvorets also lists the names of more than 300 children……”
