Yungblud has cancelled his upcoming Russian shows, set to take place this summer.

Following the invasion of Ukraine, he’s the latest to pull future appearances in the country.

In a statement posted online, he writes: “I’m heartbroken to announce I will be cancelling my Russian shows scheduled for this summer.

“Heartbroken because I know the vicious and brutal acts of the Russian Regime in Ukraine over the past week do not reflect the attitudes and ideals of the beautiful people who I have met in Russia in the past!

“To the people of Ukraine, a country I’ve spent time in and have dear friends in. My heart is with you – you’ve already shown such strength and determination resisting this needless invasion. Everyone deserves to be the creator of their own destiny, rather than having it forced upon them by acts of war and aggression.

“Ukraine, I promise I’ll come back as soon as I can! My heart is with you always.”
