Im Festsaal Kreuzberg treten keine Bands auf, die eine positive Haltung zum russischen Krieg gegen die Ukraine einnehmen. Für uns als Spielstätte gilt dies ebenso, denn wir lehnen Krieg und seine menschenverachtenden, ideologischen Grundlagen ab. Nationalismus, Rassismus, Antisemitismus und Homophobie haben bei uns keinen Platz. Unsere Solidarität gilt denjenigen, die auf der Flucht vor Krieg und dessen Auswirkungen sind.

Deshalb verschließen wir uns aber nicht Bands, die aus Russland stammen. Uns liegen keinerlei Informationen darüber vor, dass Moscow Death Brigade den russischen Krieg gegen die Ukraine befürworten. Unserer Einschätzung nach vertreten sie eine regimekritische Haltung und positionieren sich seit Jahren gegen Rechtsextremismus und Rassismus in Russland.
